Children and babies can suffer from a wide range of allergies and the expert team at Midland Health can help you get the correct diagnosis and take action. Some of the most common paediatric allergies we come across include:
With 5-8% of children in the UK suffering from a food allergy, this is one of the most widely spread paediatric allergies. Common allergens include milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, sesame seeds, nuts, peanuts, wheat and soy. Our paediatrician can help you improve your awareness of the foods that can pose a risk to your child so you can avoid them, as well as how to react if your child suffers from an allergic reaction.
Also known as Hay Fever or Allergic Rhinitis, seasonal allergies, are caused by the immune system’s reaction to allergens in the air. The symptoms include inflammation in the nose that results in sneezing, stuffy nose, red, watery eyes and itchiness. Up to 10-15% of children in the UK are currently diagnosed with hay fever.
Eczema is an impairment of the skin barrier which often occurs as a result of an allergic reaction. Once identified as a symptom of an allergy, eczema can help us identify the allergens your child’s immune system is responding to. As eczema can cause discomfort and itching, it’s important to implement a management method, such as appropriate medication and moisturising the affected skin.
Child and baby allergy testing is an important part of the diagnostic process. There are various ways we can test whether your child has an allergy with the most common being:
The resident paediatric allergy consultant at Midland Health will advise you on the most suitable ways of testing your child for an allergy. Sometimes, more than one test may be required to confirm a diagnosis.
Our specialists in child allergy management will advise you on the best solution for your child, including a tailored management plan for you to follow. The most common options are:
When you first arrive at our private paediatric allergy clinic in Birmingham, you will be welcomed by our friendly staff and introduced to your paediatrician. Your doctor will discuss all the possible allergy symptoms your child is experiencing and the circumstances that led to them, as well as your medical history.
Based on the information gathered, your specialist may prescribe child allergy testing (a skin prick test, a blood test and/or food challenges) to help diagnose a potential allergy. Most tests can be done at the Midland Health clinic on the same day.
Based on the results, if an allergy diagnosis is confirmed, your paediatrician can recommend a bespoke child allergy management plan for your child to follow at home and potentially at their school or nursery.
Our team will also take the time to speak with you to ensure you are aware of how to identify and avoid allergy triggers in your child's environment, as well as how to treat your child in case of an allergic reaction. You will have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you need before you leave our clinic.
