Dr. Cowley now offers allergy appointments for children with suspected allergies.
We skin prick test in almost all children as it is virtually painless and you can get the results in clinic.
Please tell your children that it does not involve any needles. Children must be off their antihistamines for 48hours (for piriton) and 1 week for all others before skin prick testing. No topical steroids should be applied for the week before. This is essential.
