What Happens At a Paediatric Allergy Appointment?

During a paediatric allergy appointment, your child will undergo a thorough evaluation, including a detailed medical history and if appropriate a physical examination.

Based on the results, we will develop a personalised treatment plan to manage your child’s allergies effectively.

Paediatric Allergy Services We Offer

We offer a comprehensive range of paediatric allergy services for babies and children up to 16 years old, including various testing and treatment options.

Skin Prick Testing

A quick, safe and minimally invasive test where small amounts of allergens are placed on the skin to help identify if your child is allergic to something. This test looks for evidence of sIgE antibodies in the skin.

Blood Tests

Another method to look for evidence of allergen-specific antibodies in the blood, providing detailed information about potential allergic responses.

Food Allergy Testing

Identifies specific food allergens causing reactions, allowing us to create tailored dietary plans to manage and prevent symptoms.

Environmental Allergy Testing

Detects allergies to pollen, dust mites, pet dander, and other environmental factors, helping to reduce exposure and alleviate symptoms.

Eczema and Skin Condition Management

Provides diagnosis and treatment plans for allergic skin conditions, using medications, topical treatments and lifestyle adjustments.

Personalised Treatment Plans

Based on test results, we develop individualised care plans, including medications, dietary changes and avoidance strategies, to effectively manage your child’s allergies.
