No: Generally no. If you are receiving allergy shots, it is important to have the correct tree pollen that is responsible in the shot, but otherwise the basic principles are the same. Knowing which tree pollens are responsible for your allergies can help plan desensitization (allergy shots) and might help you predict which seasons will be difficult for you.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes.: The fda considers coconut to be a nut. Practically speaking coconut allergy is far less common than peanut, pistachio, cashew, walnut, pecan or hazelnut allergy.

However, there may be some health benefits of individual components of the product, though not necessarily in the amount provided.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Almonds are a tree nut. Other common nuts to avoid: pistachio, pecan, cashew, walnut. Peanuts are a legume so technically you can eat them. Many times these are mixed or prepared with or near tree nuts so if you don't know how its been prepared it is safest to avoid these as well.
Tree nut allergy: Tree nut allergy is an immune mediated allergic reaction that occurs after consumption of tree nuts- the list includes many nuts such as walnuts, pecans, cashews, almonds, brazil nut, pistachios. Patients usually present with hives, itching, swelling, cough, wheeze, chest tightness, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Avoid the food: The best current treatment for food allergies is avoiding that particular food. After avoidance, antihistamines can decrease itching associated with food allergies. The use of steroid creams or ointments may help, but should be monitored by a physician. An allergist can assist in identifying the specific food trigger.
Varies: All over (urticaria / hives / itchy blotches), or in the creases of the elbows and knees (atopic dermatitis). Dh from gluten senstivity symmetic, upper body. Some of the more mysterious skin diseases may also be caused by food hypersensitivity sometimes. Food allergy is best diagnosed by what happens to a person if they eat the stuff; it can be dangerous and needs respect. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer
Tree Nuts: Tree nuts refers to all nuts that grow on trees, such as walnut, pecan, brazil nut, cashew, etc. All of these and a few others are available as allergy tests. Peanut and soynut are not true nuts; they are legumes that are roasted to be crunchy. They have some of the same allergens as tree nuts, however. Some people are allergic to tree nuts and peanut. If allergic to one tree nut, avoid all.
Not always: Not necessarily. However, until you are tested for specific nut, I would avoid them all.

My allergies are out of control! I already take 180mg of allegra (fexofenadine). What can I take along w/allegra (fexofenadine) to help them? I'm allergic to some trees an grasses.
Lots of choices: Allegra is an antihistamine, so you would want to choose some rx from other classes of medications. Nearly all of your other choices would be prescriptions. Nasal steroid sprays, nasal antihistamines, oral leukotriene inhibitors can all be helpful as prescribed by your physician or health professional. About the only other possibly helpful rx otc would be Nasalcrom that is a nasal spray. See md.

At the risk of schilling for big pharma (which I'm not), check out this link to a MAP of states that gives you some idea of what allergens tend to dominate where (http://www.Clarinex.Net/application/allergyinfo. Action? Link=geography). I tried to look for non-commercial maps but couldn't find any. Sorry!
