Which items are measured in the Pollen Allergy test?

Ash (pollen)
Ash pollen allergy is a type of seasonal allergic reaction caused by the pollen of ash trees. These trees release pollen into the air, typically in the spring, which can trigger allergic responses in sensitive individuals. This allergy is part of a larger group of allergies known as hay fever or allergic rhinitis.
Bahia grass (pollen)
Bahia grass pollen allergy is a reaction to the pollen produced by Bahia grass, a type of grass commonly found in warmer climates and often used in lawns and pastures. When Bahia grass pollinates, typically in the late spring and summer, its pollen can trigger allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.
Birch (pollen)
Birch pollen means spring allergies. It floats in the air when birch trees bloom, causing watery eyes, runny noses, and sneezes. Stay ahead by checking pollen levels and keeping windows shut during peak season to dodge those spring sniffles!
Cypress (pollen)
Cypress pollen allergy is a reaction to the pollen produced by cypress trees, which are common in various landscapes and ornamental gardens. These trees typically release pollen in late winter to early spring, triggering allergic responses in sensitized individuals. This type of allergy is a seasonal allergic rhinitis, often grouped with tree pollen allergies.
Hazelnut (pollen)
Hazelnut pollen allergy is an allergic reaction to the pollen grains from hazelnut trees. While less common than allergies to grasses or other tree pollens, it can cause symptoms in sensitized individuals, especially during the tree's pollinating season, which typically occurs in early spring.
Mugwort (pollen)
Mugwort pollen allergy is a reaction to the pollen of the mugwort plant, a common weed found in many parts of the world. This type of allergy typically occurs in late summer and fall when mugwort pollinates. It's known for causing hay fever symptoms and can be particularly troublesome for those with other plant-based allergies.
Olive (pollen)
Olive pollen allergy is a type of allergic reaction to the pollen grains released by olive trees. This allergy is especially prevalent in regions where olive trees are widely cultivated. Olive pollen is a common allergen and typically causes symptoms during the pollination season, which occurs in late spring and early summer.
Ribwort plantain (pollen)
Ribwort plantain pollen allergy is a reaction to the pollen from the ribwort plantain plant, a common weed found in many regions. This type of allergy is part of seasonal allergic rhinitis or hay fever and tends to flare up during the plant's pollinating season, typically in late spring and early summer.
Rye (pollen)
Rye pollen allergy is an allergic response to the pollen grains produced by rye grass, a common grass species used in agriculture and found in many natural landscapes. This allergy is a form of seasonal allergic rhinitis, often peaking during the grass pollination season in late spring and early summer.
Timothy grass (pollen)
Timothy grass pollen allergy is a reaction to the pollen of Timothy grass, a common type of grass used in hay and prevalent in many temperate regions. This allergy is a form of seasonal allergic rhinitis and typically flares up during the grass's pollinating season, usually in late spring and early summer.
Wormwood ambrosia (pollen)
Wormwood Ambrosia pollen allergy, often referred to as an allergy to ragweed pollen, is a common allergic reaction to the pollen of the wormwood ambrosia, or common ragweed plant. This plant is widespread, particularly in North America, and blooms late in the summer through fall, causing seasonal allergic rhinitis or hay fever in sensitized individuals.
Bermuda grass (pollen)
Bermuda grass pollen allergy is a type of allergic reaction to the pollen grains released by Bermuda grass, a common grass species in warmer regions, especially used for lawns, parks, and golf courses. This allergy is a form of seasonal allergic rhinitis, often flaring up during the grass-pollinating seasons, typically late spring and summer.

Many people suffering from pollen allergies also react to other substances, often experiencing what is known as cross-allergy. Common cross-reactive substances for those with pollen allergies include stone fruits (such as cherries, peaches, and plums), apples, pears, peanuts, and root vegetables. If you wish to test for a broader range of substances, our comprehensive Allergy Test UK covers the 38 most common allergens in the UK, including various foods and pet dander.

    Springtime, for many, signifies rebirth and renewal. For me, it symbolized the onslaught of allergies, turning vibrant days into blurry-eyed misery. Over time, I grew tired of the endless guessing game of which pollen wreaked havoc on my immune system. This frustration led me to the Pollen Allergy Test by GetTested. The kit was a marvel of convenience. It arrived promptly, was packaged efficiently, and came with a comprehensive guide that made sample collection hassle-free. But the real magic happened once I sent it back. The report was illuminating. While I was on the money about being allergic to grass pollen, I had no clue about the tree and weed pollen sensitivities. The results were broken down in an easy-to-understand manner, allowing me to pinpoint the culprits with precision. With these insights, I adjusted my lifestyle, from morning jogs to evening walks and invested in specific antihistamines. Life has been so much clearer, literally and figuratively. The difference this test made is undeniable. I can now embrace spring with open arms, without the fear of allergic reactions clouding my experience.
