This Orange Allergy Test uses a blood sample to determine whether or not you are allergic to oranges. Those with orange allergies are prone to rashes, watery eyes, wheezing, and in extreme cases, anaphylaxis. In many cases, those with orange allergies can be allergic to other citrus fruits as well. For this reason, we suggest covering multiple bases at once (and saving money) with our Citrus Fruit Allergy Panel. To identify a specific orange allergy, order the Priority Lab Testing Orange Allergy Test today.

Allergies are a common occurrence, affecting millions of people each year. The good news is that most allergies can be managed with medication and avoiding triggers. However, managing an allergy can be more difficult for common foods such as oranges. Here are some of the most common symptoms of an orange allergy:
If you experience any of these symptoms after eating oranges or coming into contact with orange skin or juice, it’s important to see an allergist for proper diagnosis and treatment. With the help of a medical professional, you can manage your orange allergy and enjoy a safe and symptom-free life.
If you have ever been diagnosed with a citrus allergy, you may have been told to avoid all citrus fruits, including oranges. However, it is possible to be allergic to oranges without being allergic to other citrus fruits.
As a result, someone with an orange allergy may be able to eat other citrus fruits without experiencing any symptoms. But conversely, someone with a citrus fruit allergy will need to avoid all citrus fruits.
If you suspect you’re allergic to oranges specifically, an orange allergy test will help you ascertain it. However, you may also not be sure whether you have an orange or a citrus fruit allergy. A citrus fruit allergy test will be the better option if that’s the case.
Citrus fruit allergy tests work in the same way as orange allergy tests. First, a small blood sample is taken and sent to a laboratory for analysis. The results will help your allergist determine whether you have a citrus fruit allergy or are only allergic to oranges.
At Priority Lab Testing, your convenience is among our top priorities. Therefore, you won’t need to collect your tests in person as we’ll email you a secure link that you can use to access it.
Furthermore, the results are displayed in a simple fashion and in plain language to make them easy to understand. To begin with, the results are displayed as either normal or abnormal, meaning non-reactive and reactive, respectively.
You’ll also notice a chart that indicates different levels of orange allergy and a flag that indicates your particular level.
If you have any questions about your results, we recommend that you are welcome to reach out to us. One of our certified professionals will help you understand the results and advice accordingly.
While it’s possible to outgrow some allergies, you’re unlikely to outgrow an orange allergy. In fact, research suggests that citrus allergies may even develop in adulthood.
The best way to avoid an allergic reaction is to avoid oranges altogether and any products containing oranges. Be sure to check food labels carefully and always ask servers about ingredients, as oranges are used in many products.
If you have a mild allergic reaction to oranges, over-the-counter antihistamines may be enough to relieve your symptoms. However, if you experience a more severe reaction, such as wheezing or difficulty breathing, you should seek medical attention immediately.
