What is this test?

Basil allergies are rare, but the symptoms of this malady can be just as distressing as those of common food sensitivities. Reactions can cause hives, welts on the face and mouth, runny nose, itchy eyes, shortness of breath, nausea and vomiting shortly after consumption. A basil allergy is the result of your immune system mistakenly identifying basil as a foreign invader. The first time you eat it, your body develops antibodies against it, as it would against a bacteria or virus. Molecules called immunoglobulin E, which your body designs to bond one or more basil compounds, attach to mast cells and await the next invasion. The next time you eat basil, the IgE-mast cell complexes bond to it, causing the mast cells to release chemicals that cause an allergic reaction.
