Mugwort pollen is one of the allergic pollen. It is known to trigger allergic reactions such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, and conjunctivitis.Interestingly, people who are allergic to other pollens have a high chance of being allergic to Mugwort because of cross-reactivity.

Since mugwort weed is common in many areas, the allergy begins around the same time as many other weed allergies. You can expect the mugwort allergy and mugwort pollen to reach their peak around late summer and fall. If you suffer from mugwort allergy, avoid places that may have high concentration of mugwort pollen.

Apart from coming in direct contact with mugwort pollen, some food items contain proteins similar to mugwort pollen, which can cause cross-reactivity in many people with mugwort allergies.

You can also experience allergy symptoms when eating or being exposed to the following food items:

  • Tomatoes
  • Pineapple
  • Citrus fruits
  • Bananas
  • Watermelon
  • Apples
  • Cherries
  • Fennel
  • Zucchini
  • Peanuts
  • Peaches

If you suffer from mugwort allergy, avoiding the food items mentioned above is best. Some of these food items can also cause severe allergic reactions and may require immediate medical attention.

Mugwort allergy is most commonly caused by a reaction in the body’s immune system. Your immune system identifies some foreign substances as dangerous. To combat this, your body produces IgE antibodies to protect your immune system. The antibodies are responsible for triggering the release of histamine, which then leads to allergic reactions.

The severity of these allergic reactions can vary from person to person. Some common symptoms caused by a mugwort allergy are:

  • Sneezing
  • Wheezing
  • Watery eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Watery eyes
  • Itchiness in the eyes or throat

If your allergic reactions are strong, you may experience severe symptoms like asthma or anaphylaxis, which can lead to other fatal health complications.

To get an appropriate treatment plan for your mugwort allergy, it is best to opt for a mugwort allergy test to help determine the severity of an allergic reaction. If you get a positive allergy result, you can discuss the proper steps and treatment to undertake with your doctor, along with regular follow-ups.

Some everyday food items involved in oral allergy syndrome and containing mugwort pollen are watermelon, pineapple, melon, peanut, hazelnut, etc. Knowing the protein composition of the food items before consuming them is better for managing your allergies.
