The pear tree grows wild in western Asia and eastern Europe with many varieties under cultivation. Europe is the largest producer with Italy in the lead. Pear may result in symptoms of food allergy, anaphylaxis, and in particular oral allergy syndrome (OAS), in sensitised individuals. The skin is served by many blood vessels that carry allergenic proteins along with nutrients and waste. As the effects from pear allergies spread to the skin, eczema allergy symptoms follow. According to the NIH, a patient's skin may form red, scaly rashes, or painful hives in which the inflamed skin develops raised welts. Because many types of allergic reactions produce contact rashes, these symptoms can only be associated with pears if the fruits were recently ingested. Tingling, itching or tenderness may constitute the first signs of pear allergies. Itching may begin in the mouth, lips and throat, or in the fingers after handling pears. once allergens are ingested, food allergy symptoms develop along the digestive tract. Itching can start on contact and progress as allergens travel through the bloodstream and digestive organs. The mucous membranes are particularly susceptible to itching, which may spread to the eyes and other areas. Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen.
