Is corn pollen allergy the same as corn allergy

Apparently I am allergic to corn pollen (tested for allergies today). Does that mean I am allergic to all things corn or just the pollen? Thanks.

You'd have to be tested for the food version to know that.

Okay - so to your knowledge - the positive test for corn pollen only applies specifically to corn pollen. Having a large bowl of corn for supper tonight is not a necessarily a problem because I wasn't tested for corn allergy.

Well, I'd certainly have more than a bowl of corn for supper....but yes, a pollen allergy does not necessarily equate to a food allergy...it could though so keep that in mind.

The two are not related, although a person could possibly have both allergies.
