Kids Allergy Hamilton is a pediatric specialist service that has been set up with the sole purpose of providing a comprehensive approach in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of allergies and intolerance in children.
People who have allergies have an immune system that reacts to a usually harmless substance in the environment. This substance (food, pollen, pet hair, mould, dust, etc.) is called an allergen. The single most important clinical intervention in allergy is to establish a correct diagnosis and the key to allergy diagnosis is taking a detailed clinical history.
Based on the history we may perform scientifically proven allergy testing such as Skin Prick Testing (SPT), Specific IgE (blood test) if required.
Non – allergic conditions are often mistaken for an allergy. Examples of these are food intolerance and idiopathic urticaria / angioedema. We strive to provide comprehensive advice to manage these conditions.
We are here to guide and help you through the often confusing and frustrating diagnosis of allergies and intolerance’s and work in collaboration with your GP and other health professionals to ensure holistic allergy care is provided for your child.
