Allergy appointment what to expect in the Allergy Clinic City:
Allergy testing in the City of London is performed by Allergy Consultant, after the tests for suitable patients there are many treatments we can offer including specific sub-lingual immunotherpy specific treatment for hay fever (allergic rhinitis) and allergic asthma.
Skin prick allergy testing involves placing drops of allergens on patient’s skin (forearm or back), then allergy consultant will apply some pressure through the drop with a special sterile device (this will introduce allergen in the upper layer of the skin). Results of the allergy testing are given in 15 minutes and interpreted on site in line with the patient’s history.
Please make sure that you avoid antihistamines 2 days before your appointment as this test looks into histamine release and antihistamines will cause false negative results. If you cant stop antihistamines before your allergy testing appointment in the Allergy Clinic there is a range of other allergy tests that can be done instead of skin prick test please tell this to your consultant or e-mail this to our customer support.
Please bring all relevant medical documents, test results and list of your medication (if you take inhalers for asthma please bring them with you).
