Description

Order a turkey feather allergy IgE blood test to detect an allergy to turkey feathers. This test measures the amount of allergen-specific antibodies in a blood sample.

Turkey feathers are one of the more common causes of allergic reactions when compared to other bird feathers. Allergies may become apparent after exposure to turkeys due to handling them, cleaning their cages, or being in the area where dust is circulated from housing the birds.

An allergy to turkey feathers triggers a reaction in an individual's immune system. The body views certain substances as toxic and produces IgE antibodies to these contaminants. These antibodies cause histamine to be released, which will cause the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Allergy symptoms vary from one individual to the next ranging from mild to severe reactions, which can be experienced within minutes to hours after exposure. Common symptoms of a turkey feather allergy may include one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • Coughing
  • Postnasal drip
  • Itchy and watery eyes
  • Runny nose
