Description

Hazelnut is the fruit from a hazelnut tree and resembles an acorn. These nuts are a good source of Vitamin E, which is a potent antioxidant. They grow almost anywhere in the United States and can be purchased in most grocery stores. They are often eaten as a snack with other nuts and are found in nut spreads and coffee liqueurs. Tree nut allergies are among the most common of the food allergies and are found in both children and adults.  

Symptoms can range from mind to severe, and can include:

•  Swelling

•  Itching

•  Hives

•  Runny eyes and nose

•  Breathing difficulties

•  Tingling in the mouth or throat

Positive allergy test results should be discussed with your physician.
