Allergies

We are delighted to offer comprehensive treatment for a wide range of allergy related issues. Our expert consultants are leaders in their fields and can help you minimise and manage the effect allergies have on your day-to-day life.

An allergy is a reaction the body has to a particular substance or food. Common symptoms include sneezing, a running or blocked nose, difficulty breathing and a red, itchy rash. Allergies are very common: it is thought that they affect more than one in four people in the UK at some point in their lives.

Food Allergy

A food allergy is when your body reacts to a specific food, causing your immune system to trigger an abnormal response; the most common foods that trigger allergic reactions include fish, peanuts, milk and wheat. 

 

Drug Allergy

Any medication is capable of inducing an allergic reaction; a drug allergy occurs when your immune system has an abnormal reaction to a specific drug. 

 

Anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis is a much more serious allergic reaction which can be life-threatening. The most common anaphylaxis reactions are to insect stings, medications, latex and foods. 

 

Urticaria (Hives)

Urticaria (also known as hives) causes swollen pale red bumps that appear on the skin all of a sudden. It can often cause burning, stinging and itching of the affected area. 

 

Angiodema

Angiodema is swelling of the lower layer of skin and tissue just under the skin. It is often associated with hives. 

 

Asthma

Asthma can make breathing more difficult and can cause shortness of breathe and coughing. This is due to the airways being narrow and swelling which then produces extra mucus.

 

Eczema

Eczema is a condition that causes skin to become cracked, dry and itchy. For most people it is a long-term condition, however, it can improve over time with proper treatment.
