If she or he is suffering with sneezing, itching, rashes, congested nose, or has a family history of asthma, hayfever or eczema? If yes - then he or she may have an allergy
Many sufferers are going undiagnosed, but allergies are becoming increasingly common. Food allergy is now affecting one in ten children, with many more suffering from eczema and dry skin. Early management can make a big difference to this and other atopic conditions.
We offer a comprehensive paediatric allergy service covering all aspects of food allergy, food intolerances, eczema, asthma and hayfever.
Allergy is an adverse immune reaction to a protein in our environment, which is harmless to a non-allergic person. An allergy may present as mild itching of the skin, swelling and wheezing or even anaphylactic shock.
Whilst 18 million allergy sufferers live in the UK, 4% of the population also have a food allergy but only a small proportion of the population exposed to an allergen will actually develop an allergic reaction.
Our consultant, Dr Lee Noimark, and the Allergy Clinic staff, clinically assess, test, diagnose and treat a variety of allergic conditions. Both skin prick testing and blood testing are offered at our clean, comfortable clinic.
