    Allergies are common health conditions that occur when the immune system overreacts to certain substances, like pollen, dust, or food. Tobacco allergy is a lesser-known type of allergy that affects some people who come into contact with tobacco smoke or nicotine. The Tobacco Allergy Test offered by Apollo 24/7 is a simple blood test that can detect whether a person has an allergy to tobacco or not.

    Symptoms of Tobacco Allergy

    The symptoms of tobacco allergy vary from person to person. The symptoms can range from mild to severe and can vary depending on the person's sensitivity to tobacco. Some common symptoms of tobacco allergy are:

    • Sneezing
    • Runny nose
    • Congestion
    • Itchy or watery eyes
    • Coughing
    • Wheezing
    • Shortness of breath
    • Redness and itching of the skin
    • Skin rash or hives
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Headaches
    • Dizziness
    • Swelling around the face, mouth and throat

    If a person experiences any of these symptoms after being exposed to tobacco or nicotine in any form, it is important to get tested for a tobacco allergy.

    Test Procedure

    The Tobacco Allergy test offered by Apollo 24/7 requires a simple blood sample from the person being tested. The blood sample is obtained through a process called venipuncture. In this process, a laboratory technician will insert a needle into a vein in the person's arm to draw blood. The blood sample is then sent to the laboratory for analysis. The process is quick and relatively painless. The test does not require any preparation or fasting beforehand.

    Once collected, the blood sample is sent to the laboratory for analysis. The laboratory will analyse the blood sample for the presence of specific antibodies that react with tobacco allergens. The presence of these antibodies will indicate that the person has an allergic reaction to tobacco. The test is highly accurate and can detect even trace amounts of the allergen.


    If the test results come back with a positive result for tobacco allergy, it is important to take steps to avoid exposure to tobacco smoke and nicotine. This may involve quitting smoking or avoiding passive smoking in public spaces. Additionally, medications such as antihistamines, corticosteroids, and decongestants may be prescribed to alleviate the symptoms of the allergy. In severe cases, emergency treatment may be required.

    Benefits of Early Diagnosis

    There are several benefits of getting tested for a tobacco allergy early on. Some of the major benefits are as follows:

    • Early testing and diagnosis can help people identify and avoid triggers that cause an allergic reaction. They can take the necessary precautions to avoid exposure to tobacco products.
    • Early detection can prevent serious complications that arise from untreated allergies, such as anaphylaxis.
    • Timely diagnosis ensures prompt treatment if required, to help alleviate the symptoms of the allergy.
    • Additionally, early diagnosis can lead to better management of symptoms and improve the person's overall quality of life.
