Brinjals are rich in nutritional value as they contain abundant vitamins and minerals. However, they can also cause mild to severe skin allergies. A person might also show allergic reactions toward the leaves and pollen of the vegetable.
To avoid exposure and deal with the symptoms, it is necessary to confirm the allergy using a brinjal allergy test. Brinjal contains several toxic substances, and histamine is the most common one. This chemical triggers allergic reactions in the body and shows multiple symptoms on the skin.
