Our Most Popular Allergy Consultations

Food Allergy Testing

food allergy testing

Food allergies can be serious and even life-threatening for many people. Skin prick testing involves placing a small amount of the suspect allergen on your skin and observing for a response. This can be done for a wide range of foods including tree nuts, peanuts, fruits, eggs, fish, crustaceans, and many more available for a quick and effective diagnosis. Oral challenge tests and blood tests to check for an allergy are also available.

Hayfever, Tree Pollen and Other Pollens Allergy Testing

Around 1 in 4 UK adults have an allergy to pollen. Our team can use skin prick testing to identify the type of pollen you are allergic to and recommend sublingual immunotherapy to improve your symptoms. Different types of pollen (tree pollen, grass or weed) are more prevalent at different times of the year. You can use our pollen count page to check the pollen count in your area.

House Dust Mite Allergy Testing

Eczema and Urticaria Management

urticaria and eczema

Sometimes simple measures are not enough to control your eczema or urticaria. Allergy testing may be required to rule out allergens that could be flaring up your symptoms and you may need more advanced therapy. We can also review potential cases of chronic spontaneous urticaria to rule out other potential diagnoses.

Food Intolerance Diagnosis and Management

By excluding other causes such as true food allergies, we can help you identify food intolerances. Although no specific tests in the majority of cases, a food intolerance tends to be a diagnosis of exclusion.
