Offering Specialist Allergy Treatments to your Family
Immunotherapy for Living Life
Immunotherapy ‘dampens’ the allergic response to a specific allergen and improves quality of life if conventional treatments are of limited benefit.
Persistent sniffing, nose rubbing and itching can have a serious impact on wellbeing. It may affect your child’s sleep, concentration and sporting stamina. Children sometimes suffer breathlessness of which they are not yet aware. Environmental allergens can also drive eczema, reducing effectiveness of conventional therapies.
Translational Specialist Treatments
Immunotherapy available for environmental allergies
Grass & Tree Pollen
Pollen peaks cause huge fluctuation in symptoms, peaking during the day and evenings too. The ‘Met Office’ app gives seasonal warning alerts according to weather and pollen blooms in your area.
There has been a surge in modern families opting for some ‘Covid Company’. Dander immunotherapy has been one of the most relevant products, as newly found dog allergies have materialised over the year.
House Dust Mite
House dust mite causes some of the most persistent and difficult disease. Please do not dismiss persistent sniffing and congestion as frustrating behaviour! Dust allergic asthma is a risk factor for recurring attacks.
Cats decide where they will live, and often disregard any rules. Cat allergen is airborne and sticky, so it travels almost as far as your cat! ‘Washing off’ dander spreads allergen to other ‘clean’ clothes in the drum.
Your Child Should Not Suffer
Children with hay fever are more likely to drop grades coming up to their summer exams. They can battle with constant head-fog, poor sleep, frustration from persistent sniffing, sometimes combined with wheeze and coughing.
As parents, it is easy to assume ‘this is just how it is’ – especially if antihistamines and nasal sprays have little impact.
