Coastal Immunology and Allergy Clinic has extensive experience in identifying and treating most allergies.
Allergy is very common in Australia, affecting around 20% of people. An allergic reaction occurs when a person’s immune system reacts to substances (allergens) that do not affect most people.
This leads to inflammation (redness and swelling), and to the following conditions – Allergic Rhinitis (hay fever), Eczema or urticaria (hives), allergies to food, medications, insects, grasses and pollens, moulds and other allergens, Anaphylaxis (severe life-threatening allergic reaction) and asthma.
Some people may experience an intolerance to foods or environment, rather than an actual allergic reaction.
Note: we do not test for chemicals, metals, medications or perfumes.
For these types of allergy testing please contact RNSH (Royal North Shore Hospital) Allergy Clinic on tel: 02-9439 9360.
