    Pears are sweet fruits that have a high number of antioxidants and dietary fibre. However, they can cause harmful reactions in some individuals. If you suffer from the following symptoms after consuming these fruits, it might be signs of potential pear allergies:

    • Swelling of face
    • Itchy skin
    • Diarrhoea
    • Vomiting
    • Nausea
    • Tingling sensation in the mouth

    In severe cases, allergy to pears can also lead to a life-threatening condition known as anaphylaxis. Hence, taking a quick note of pear allergy symptoms is crucial to avoid such health conditions.

    During a food allergy, allergen specific antibodies in your immune system perceive pears as harmful substances. This reaction results in the release of immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies. Eventually, the process leads to a release of histamines, leading to a pear allergy.

    If you notice the common pear allergy symptoms, here are a few quick measures:

    • Over-the-counter antihistamine medications
    • Emergency epinephrine auto-injector

    The first measure can provide relief in case of mild symptoms. However, you should only choose the second option after consulting your doctor. Generally, a pear allergy test is helpful in the detection and long-term treatment of an adverse reaction. This medical evaluation is similar to an IgE blood test.

    The lab technician will instruct you to provide a blood sample in the initial phase of a pear allergy test. For this purpose, the expert will draw blood from your arm. After collecting the specimen, the blood sample analysis will reveal allergen-specific antibodies. If IgE antibodies are present in your blood, it implies an ongoing allergic reaction.

    Your doctor will assess two facets after testing:

    • Results of the test – positive and level of IgE antibodies
    • Your symptoms after allergy

    The combination of these parameters will help recommend suitable pear allergy treatment. Firstly, your doctor can recommend prescription medicines to treat the ongoing symptoms. Next, you might need to avoid eating pears altogether to prevent future pear allergies.

    Proteins in pear are similar to peaches and birch pollen. Hence, an IgE blood test is necessary to establish allergic reactions. In some cases, pear allergy symptoms will resolve on their own. However, different immune systems can trigger distinct allergic reactions.

    Reliable medical testing is the key to identifying and avoiding specific allergens from your routine. For this purpose, choosing a trustworthy lab is essential. Apollo 24|7 has a specialised pear allergy test. Our technicians ensure adherence to all medical care practices during the testing. Notably, you can avail the test results at competitive rates.

    After acquiring the results, your doctor can suggest you to refrain from consuming foods and drinks containing pears. However, this decision will depend on the IgE levels and your current symptoms afterexperiencing allergy to pears.
