Allergies

 It is estimated that one in three people in the UK currently has, or will, suffer with an allergy sometime in their life and we know that number is increasing every year.  There can be a number of common causes which produce a variety of allergic symptoms.   These allergies include foods such as peanut, seafood, egg; inhalant allergies from house dust mites, grass pollens or moulds; contact allergies i.e. latex, chemicals, cosmetics as well as allergies to pets and insect bite allergies.  Our aim is to identify the allergen, thus confirming exactly what merits careful avoidance, or treat the cause with safe methods of desensitisation, in order to give lasting relief.
