Consultant paediatrician – child health allergy

Dr Oana Anton
Consultant Paediatrician

Our paediatrician  consults on all acute and chronic medical problems in children including food allergies, eczema, hay fever, abdominal pain, constipation, bed wetting, seizures, migraine, joint pains, nutritional disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety and palpitations.

We also offer all childhood vaccines and sublingual immunotherapy for hay fever, house dust mite and domestic pets.

Our research team has participated in many clinical trials, published extensively in peer reviewed indexed journals and presented in many international conferences.

At present we don’t do desensitisation treatment (oral immunotherapy for food allergens), but we are working towards establishing this treatment in the hospital group.

We can do full scope of allergy test to diagnose food allergy in babies, children and adolescents.

Our consultants are frequently invited to deliver talks at medical conferences on topics like cows’ milk protein allergy, wheat intolerance and eczema management in children.
