Description

Order a Papaya Allergy IgE Blood Test to detect an allergy to papayas.  This test measures the amount of allergen-specific antibodies in a blood sample.  Papayas, often called papaws or pawpaws, grow well in tropical climates. They're a popular fruit due to their sweet flavor, vibrant color, and several health benefits.  

Unripened papaya consists of a high amount of latex.  There's a considerable probability you're allergic to papaya if you've been diagnosed with a latex allergy. 

Common allergy symptoms could include:

  • hives
  • itching
  • stuffy nose
  • wheezing and chest tightness
  • in severe cases, anaphylaxis or severe breathing difficulty
