About the allergen in hazel

The allergen in hazel trees is the proteins found in the pollen from these trees. Pollen from hazel can cause allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to it.

The proteins in hazel pollen can cause allergic reactions that may include symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itching, and red eyes. In more severe cases, it can lead to breathing difficulties and asthma.

For people allergic to hazel pollen, it may be helpful to avoid areas with high levels of pollen during the pollen season, use allergy medication recommended by a doctor or allergist, or undergo allergen immunotherapy (hyposensitization) to reduce the body's sensitivity to the allergen.

How can I find out if I am allergic to hazel?

A blood test can be used to investigate an allergy to hazel pollen by measuring levels of specific antibodies in the blood that are associated with allergic reactions to hazel pollen. The test is called a specific IgE test.

The results of the test will show if you have an allergic reaction to hazel or not. If the levels of specific IgE antibodies are high, it may indicate that you are allergic to hazel pollen.

It is important to note that the results of an IgE test do not always correlate completely with allergy symptoms and that the test is only part of the investigation process.

If you take a test for hazel allergy and it turns out that your IgE antibodies are elevated, you can show your result to a doctor or allergist who can assist you with a complete assessment and possible treatment.
