Allergy

Start a diagnosis

Symptoms are due to the immune system reacting to a certain agent, commonly pollen. As a result, cells on the lining of the nose and eyes release chemicals causing inflammation in the nose (rhinitis) and eyes (conjunctivitis).

Sometimes the sinuses and throat can also become affected.

We treat simple allergies to pets, dust mite and also hay fever.
