Allergy Centre @ Medahead
We provide a comprehensive allergy evaluation, using scientifically proven diagnostic tests, to determine if you or your child has allergies and which allergens are responsible for the allergy.
Many children and adults suffer from allergies without knowing the reason behind the symptoms. You may suspect that your child has an allergy but perhaps do not know what to do about it. Guidance on avoidance, appropriate treatment and where possible, desensitization, can relieve symptoms and significantly improve the quality of life of the allergy sufferer and his/her family.
An allergic reaction occurs when the immune system reacts to a substance that is normally considered to be safe, for example animal dander, pollen and certain foods such as wheat, milk or eggs. Such a reaction can cause:
- Runny, itchy or stuffed nose
- Wheezing, coughing or trouble breathing
- Skin rash, eczema, hives
- Swollen lips, tongue or face
- Nausea and vomiting
Should you like to know whether you or your child have allergies, or if you need more information on how to manage your allergies, contact Dr Carien Murray today.
