    Sheep Sorel is a type of plant that can trigger allergic reactions in some people. The allergic reaction is caused by the presence of a protein called profilin in the plant. This protein can cause symptoms such as runny nose, itchy eyes, coughing, and sneezing. In some cases, it can cause more severe symptoms such as hives, difficulty breathing, and even anaphylaxis.

    The Sheep Sorel Allergy Test is a blood test performed to detect the presence of allergies to Sheep Sorel.

    This test is highly specific and helps in diagnosing allergies at an early stage. The test is offered by Apollo 24|7, making it easy and convenient for individuals to book the test online and receive their test reports in a timely manner.

    - Sneezing
    - Runny or stuffy nose
    - Itchy or watery eyes
    - Coughing
    - Wheezing or shortness of breath

    Test Procedure

    The Sheep Sorel Allergy Test requires a blood sample for analysis. A healthcare professional will collect the blood sample from a vein in your arm using a needle. The procedure is quick and relatively painless.

    The collected sample will be sent to the laboratory for analysis. At the lab, the sample will be analysed for the presence of specific antibodies that are produced by the immune system in response to Sheep Sorel allergens. The test result will show whether an individual has an allergy to Sheep Sorel or not.


    If an individual tests positive for Sheep Sorel allergy, there are several treatment options available to them. The first and most important step is to avoid exposure to Sheep Sorel. Over-the-counter medications such as antihistamines and decongestants can also help alleviate symptoms. In more severe cases, a doctor may prescribe allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots) or other medications such as corticosteroids.

    Confirming Allergy from an Allergy Panel

    It is important to confirm allergies from a clinical test to ensure that the treatment is accurate and effective. An allergy panel can help identify specific allergens that an individual is allergic to, allowing for more targeted and effective treatment.
