Our paediatric allergy service provides care for children and adolescents suffering from any aspects of allergic disease. We strive to deliver high quality holistic care in a child friendly environment. 

 

We manage the following allergic conditions:

  • immediate and delayed food allergies

  • asthma
  • eczema
  • allergic rhinoconjunctivitis (hay fever)
  • urticaria (hives or nettle rash)
  • angioedema (swelling)

 

Tests and treatments for these conditions include:

  • Skin prick tests
  • Specific IgE testing
  • Oral food and drug challenges
  • Allergen immunotherapy to house dust mite, grass and tree pollens.
  • Education on how to use devices such as inhalers, nasal sprays and adrenaline auto-injectors for severe allergic reactions, and allergy action plans and asthma action plans
