Paediatric Allergy Appointments

For skin prick testing with results on clinic day patients have to be off piriton for 48 hours and all other antihistamines for 1 week.
Please bring any fresh fruit or vegetable and any other foodstuffs except for the following that we will provide:

  • Nuts
  • Sesame
  • Wheat
  • Egg
  • Milk
  • Soya
  • Baked beans
  • Lentils
  • Cannelleni beans
  • Kidney beans
  • Peas

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. This is essential. If their symptoms are such that they simply can’t come off or if they have needed an emergency rescue dose then a blood test can be arranged. The results of this are not immediately available and will require a follow up appointment to be made.
