There is more to solving your problem than performing an allergy test.
We listen: how did that rash or runny nose or wheeze or whatever, start? What makes it worse…or better? What treatments have you been offered or tried? Did they work?
We examine: an itchy eczematous rash may be linked to the congested nose you’ve had. Your child’s asthma may be triggered by that ‘head cold’ she gets every month.
We use fibreoptic video endoscopy: to examine the inside of nose and sinuses.
We test: for a wide range of airborne and food allergens using skin prick allergy testing. Blood tests or Patch Tests are arranged if required.
We explain: over and above telling you what (or what not) you are allergic to we try to help you understand the link between the test result and your problem. This is of particular importance when nothing shows on testing. Not every rash, headache, joint pain, runny nose or cough is due to allergy.
We treat: Our doctors will tailor a specific treatment plan based on your symptoms, allergy test results and examination findings. This will include treatments to relieve your acute symptoms and also a long term management plan if required. You may be a candidate for additional treatment options such as Immunotherapy and Rhinolight:
- Immunotherapy involves desensitisation treatment for Grass Pollen, Tree Pollen or House Dust Mite.
- Rhinolight endonasal phototherapy is a very effective option for nasal allergies.
Helpful information handouts: To help you recall the most important points we provide information booklets.
Please note: A negative test is just as important as a positive one. A negative result allows the treating doctor to choose an appropriate management course for your condition.
