What is this test?

Allergic reactions to banana vary widely and can include itching of the mouth and throat, hives (uticaria), swelling (angioedema), and wheezing. In most cases, symptoms begin within minutes of eating the fruit. Mild allergic reactions can be treated with an antihistamine. But on rare occasions there is potential for banana to cause anaphylaxis, which is the term for a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction. If this is true in your case, your doctor is likely to prescribe a pre-loaded adrenaline injection device, which must be available at all times and used as soon as a serious reaction is suspected. A banana allergy, similarly to all allergies, occurs when the immune system overreacts to something that is otherwise harmless. The symptoms of different allergies vary from person to person and from allergen to allergen. Some people might show only mild skin irritation while others can experience the life-threatening reaction called anaphylaxis. People who have a banana allergy are more vulnerable to allergies to other substances as well as bananas. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, an allergy is a sign of an over-reactive immune system that may also react to other substances that appear harmless. Secondly, the proteins in bananas are similar to proteins in some other natural substances, notably latex, which is used in things such as hygiene gloves, balloons.
