Where To Go To Get Tested

Similar to the previous poster - my wife has a number of allergies, some we know like hayfever but some we can't seem to pin down. How and where can she go to get tested? Is it simply a case of demanding from your GP or is there a better more sane route to go down?

Any advice please

Re: Where To Go To Get Tested

Hello.

I am so sorry to hear about your wife problems!

For hayfever you may want to see an immunologist to have prick testing. If you have dermatitis (eczema) - scaly itchy rash preferentially in skin fold areas - see a dermatology consultant to have patch testing.


I hope this is helpful.
