Allergy or hypersensitivity is a condition caused by a particular substance (allergen) and symptoms occur due to an abnormal reaction of the human immune system to the substance. An allergy may present itself as a lung disease, ear-nose-throat disease, alimentary canal or some other organ disease, but most commonly the skin is affected.
To treat an allergy, the sensitive person should avoid or reduce contact with the allergen. We offer a wide range of allergy tests to determine what substance causes an allergic response in the patient. Another treatment option is to suppress the reaction of the immune system (by over-the-counter or prescription medicines).
