    Pollen is a fine powder that is found in plants, flowers, and grasses. It is produced by plants to fertilize plants, flowers, and grasses of the same species.

    Some people get adverse reactions if they come in close contact with pollen. Breathing in pollen brings them allergies, and they show irritating symptoms. Some certain grasses and flowers make them sneeze.

    Timothy grass is a type of grass that grows abundant near every field or bush. This grass is greener in appearance than common grass and contains a white flower with pollens. This pollen is rich in protein, and many people are allergic to grass.

    You may not be able to see the pollen causing the reaction. The wind carries it. Sometimes you show symptoms even when indoors or away from any kind of grass.

    The common symptoms of Timothy allergy are similar to any other forms of allergy, which includes:

    • Sneezing and itchy nose
    • Red, watery eyes
    • Itchy red rashes on the skin
    • Shortness of breath and cough

    If you are allergic to Timothy grass, you may not be allergic to other types of grass. There are hundred different types of grass. But you may react to pollen similar to the Timothy grass.

    You know it’s time to consult a doctor when the symptoms worsen over time, and all home remedies have failed. Your doctor will recommend Timothy Allergy Test before establishing the correct immunotherapy.

    Results from the Timothy Allergy Test help identify the allergen that causes the adverse reactions. It can confirm whether you have sensitivity or allergy to the allergen and identify the specific allergic reaction.

    After the doctor concludes all these, he can identify the correct course of immunotherapy for the reaction.

    A regular allergy test cannot identify the allergen. It can be challenging to determine which pollen is causing symptoms because many patients who suffer from Timothy grass allergy often exhibit symptoms when exposed to other allergens like trees, weeds, or grass pollens.

    This test uses a blood sample to identify if you’re allergic to Timothy grass. You do not need any special preparation for the test. Once your doctor prescribes the test, get an appointment at the nearest clinic or book it through Apollo 24|7 website.

    Blood tests for allergies are generally considered safe for adults and children. A healthcare provider will draw a blood sample from a vein in your arm using a needle. The blood will be collected in a vial. You will not feel any discomfort, only a slight prick when the needle is taken out.

    Typically, the test takes fifteen to thirty minutes and the reports for the Timothy Allergy Test will be available within five days.

    Frequently asked questions

    If you are allergic to Timothy grasses, chances are you will be allergic to other type of grasses as well or to fruits and vegetables that contain pollen. Melons, peaches, oranges, tomatoes, and fresh celery can worsen your allergy.
    It’s best to avoid coming in contact with Timothy grass. But there are times when you unknowingly come in contact with different allergens; you can have herbal teas containing anti-inflammatory properties. If the condition worsens, then get in touch with your doctor immediately.
    The test doesn’t really hurt. But some patients who are uncomfortable with syringes can feel a little pain. The discomfort is similar to a prickly pain caused by a routine blood check-up.
    Doctor can prescribe immunotherapy medicines that can control the symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, and rashes. This treatment can reduce or prevent your body’s reaction to these allergens to a certain extent. However, it would help if you continued the treatment for a long time.
    The allergy symptoms depend on your sensitivity to the allergen. Depending upon your sensitivity, the symptoms may last for a few days to a week or two.
    When our body encounters a typically harmless substance that it has "remembered" from a prior exposure and causes the "IgE" antibody to be generated, the reaction is referred to as an allergy.

The effects can be similar, including rashes and sneezing, but it is not an immune system response.
