if your child struggling with allergies, it can leave them feeling uncomfortable and irritable. In some situations, it can also mean that their allergy can severely impact their day-to-day life.
Reflux, constipation, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, breathing problems, itchiness, watery eyes, and sneezing can all be symptoms of an underlying allergy. If your child is regularly experiencing any of these problems, it is worth bringing your child to us for an allergy check.

We are highly experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of all kinds of allergies including eczema, food allergies, asthma, hayfever and idiopathic urticaria and angioedema.
