Allergies and Immunology
Causes and symptoms of childhood allergies are extremely diverse and can cause different degrees of discomfort. Some symptoms seem mild enough to treat at home with over the counter medications, however, if reactions become more frequent or serious, it’s important to seek diagnosis and treatment from an paediatric allergy specialist or Allergist.
A more serious reaction is known as anaphylaxis and represents a life threatening allergic response that must be treated immediately should it occur.
Through testing, an allergist can identify the allergens that cause your child’s symptoms. Your allergist can also help manage medication side effects, and offer advice on immunotherapy options.

- Allergic diseases – including food allergies and intolerances, eczema, insect and drug allergies, anaphylaxis, allergic rhinitis and asthma
