Allergic conditions are increasing in frequency in our society and can impact significantly on quality of life. Allergic diseases may include hay fever (allergic rhinitis), asthma, eczema and hives, insect allergies, food allergies and sensitivities.
Skin prick testing with specific allergens is widely recognized as a scientifically accurate method for identification of specific allergic triggers. There are also particular blood tests to assist in discovering the cause of an allergic reaction.
Once triggers are identified, appropriate management may be commenced for optimum benefit.
