Allergy Blood Test: Types, Accuracy And Results
Around 50% of children in the UK have one or more allergies which occur when antibodies react to an allergen. The immune system is triggered and inflammation can occur in the skin, sinuses, airways, and digestive system.
Although symptoms can be mild for some, they can be severe for others. It's important to recognise the signs and seek proper treatment to manage allergies in children.
Discovering what allergies a child has is important so you can avoid the trigger and manage their symptoms. An allergy blood test can reveal the allergen that’s causing the reaction and help you keep your child safe from future reactions.
This page will look at common allergies in children, the symptoms that accompany them, what an allergy blood test is and how they can help.
