What is this test?

Red peppers contain profilin, Bet v 1 and osmotin, depending on the type of pepper. Of the vast array of types of red peppers, most contain these three proteins. These three proteins are known allergens, or substances that cause allergic reactions. Red peppers have been shown to cause constriction of the airways, making it hard for the sufferer to breathe. They can also cause a rash or inflammation on the skin. The compound that makes some red peppers taste hot is capsaicin. Capsaicin is also sold and marketed as a topical analgesic because of its numbing properties. Whether rubbing a pepper against or skin or applying the cream, capsaicin can cause irritation, resulting in a rash or inflammation. Many allergies can cause a person to break out in a rash. If you think you might have an allergy, consult a doctor. The doctor will be able to conduct tests, including skin prick tests and serum immunoglobulin E tests, to determine the specific allergy. Red peppers are often used as one of many ingredients in recipes, making it hard to tell exactly which item caused the reaction. Capsicum frutescens is a species of chili pepper that includes the following cultivar and varieties: Piri piri, African birdseye, or African devil, Malagueta pepper, Tabasco pepper, used to make Tabasco sauce, and Thai pepper, also called Chili Padi or Siling labuyo.
