While some allergies can be dealt with simply by identifying and then avoiding the allergen, in other cases, prescribed medication or immunotherapy might be needed. Through a thorough examination of your medical history and by using advanced allergy tests and diagnostic tools, our specialists will determine the source of your allergies and take a patient-centred approach in helping you to deal with them. Since people’s lifestyles and even their reactions to medication differ, the approach to dealing with allergy issues needs to be highly personalised.
Armed with your diagnosis, our specialists will work with you to determine the best way to minimise future exposure to allergens, and on how best to treat the symptoms if they appear. Depending on the nature and severity of your symptoms, treatment could involve an over-the-counter or prescription medication, or a course immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is a series of allergy shots that expose a patient to the allergen, gradually increasing the amount so as to build up a tolerance to it. While immunotherapy can be ideal in cases where allergens cannot be avoided or where the symptoms are difficult to control, they do require a commitment from the patient and they do not work for everybody.
It is vital that severe allergies that could result in life-threatening anaphylactic reactions are identified and treated immediately with epinephrine and that the utmost caution is taken.
Our specialists are able to deal with anything from simple allergic reactions to helping you find relief for nasal and sinus problems, asthma, ENT (eyes, nose and throat) symptoms, skin conditions, and respiratory allergies.
