Understanding Sesame Allergies

Sesame allergies are commonly diagnosed in children but can affect people of all ages. If you have a sesame allergy, it’s crucial to be aware of the risks from foods that contain sesame seeds, sesame oil and sesame-derived ingredients.

Breads, bagels, hummus, sushi, cereals and various dressings and sauces are common examples of foods that could contain sesame (or sesame oil) and trigger a reaction. Additionally, people should be aware of the risks of cross-reactivity, especially those with peanut or tree nut allergies.

Best Treatments for a Sesame Allergy

Due to the prevalence of sesame allergies and the frequent use of sesame products in many food items, identifying an effective allergy treatment is essential. At TexasAllergyMD, treatments are personalized to meet the particular needs of each patient. Here are some common steps we use.

Dr. Mireku provides holistic food allergy care, offering protection from anaphylaxis and a better quality of life. Once we have diagnosed an allergy with skin prick or blood testing, we can help you manage your sesame allergy and even teach you to handle any possible severe reaction with an epinephrine auto-injector.

Common Questions About Sesame Allergies

Sesame allergy symptoms may include hives, swelling, abdominal pain, vomiting, difficulty breathing and in severe cases, potential anaphylaxis. These symptoms typically occur shortly after consuming sesame-containing foods.

A sesame allergy is caused by the body’s immune system overreacting to the proteins in sesame seeds and sesame oil. When the immune system releases chemicals to tackle a perceived threat, it may be followed by the common symptoms of a sesame allergy.

A sesame allergy can be outgrown, but outgrowing an allergy is more likely to happen with allergies to foods other than sesame. Regular follow-ups with your allergist can determine if exposure to sesame seeds will trigger a reaction.
