DILL ALLERGY


Key Allergens

Most people react to the main allergen in dill, which is homologous to Bet v 1 found in Birch pollen which can cause oral allergy type symptoms to multiple fruits and vegetables.

Dill contains the protein hevein, which is homologous to chitinase which is the main cause of allergic reactions to Latex.

Associated Syndromes

You may have Pollen-Food Allergy Syndrome if you suffer from dill allergy with oral allergy symptoms to 3 or more of the foods mentioned in the cross reactivity section.

Allergic reactions to dill have also been linked to a lesser degree to Latex-Food Syndrome.

Cross Reactivity

If sensitised to Birch pollen you may have Pollen Food Allergy Syndrome and may also react to apple, carrot, kiwi, pear, peach, plum, nectarine, apricots, cherries, tomato, celery, potato, parsnip, pepper, cumin, peas, coriander, fennel, hazelnut, walnut, almonds, peanuts, lentils and beans.

If sensited to mugwort pollen you may have Pollen Food Allergy Syndrome and may also react to apple, carrot, celery, parsley, fennel, coriander, cumin and sunflower seeds.

Turnip is the only other food which contains the hevein protein. Other foods containing chitinase include banana, maize, pomegranate, avocado and chestnuts.
