Paediatric allergists specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of allergic disorders including:
- Food allergies - including cows milk and nuts
- Drug allergies
- Latex allergy
Allergies affect approximately 30-40% of children at some point in their life, and it is increasing. It is important to undertake testing and subsequent diagnosis as soon as possible to ensure effective treatment.
Paying for the treatment
Paediatric allergy costs are covered by most medical insurance policies, but please check with your insurer first. If you are paying for your own treatment the cost will be explained and confirmed in writing when you book. Ask the hospital for a quote beforehand, and ensure that this includes all associated costs.
