Allergy Clinic



Allergies & their symptoms

Having an allergy is a very common condition in the UK. Causes can vary, but many allergies are manageable, and should not affect your daily life if the proper precautions are taken. Allergic reactions happen when your body reacts to an allergen and releases histamine. This causes various symptoms such as a runny or blocked nose, asthma or coughing fits, inflammation or irritation of the eyes, skin irritation, and swelling of the skin, lips or tongue.

Severe allergic reaction (anaphylactic shock)

In extreme circumstances, allergic reactions can cause anaphylactic shock. This is when your body reacts very badly and very quickly to a particular allergen (such as nuts). Symptoms include swelling of the hands, eyes and feet, itchy skin, stomach pains, and tightening of the airways. Anaphylaxis can cause swelling of the lips and tongue, breathing problems, collapse, and loss of consciousness. In some cases, anaphylaxis causes death, meaning it must always be treated as a medical emergency. During our Allergy Clinic, the pharmacist will ask you a series of questions to determine the best possible treatment for you. We can offer Fexofenadine, a strong antihistamine not commonly found over the counter. The pharmacist may suggest a nasal spray for the treatment of allergic rhinitis. For severe allergies, if you have already been prescribed an EpiPen from your doctor, you can buy an additional pen in our pharmacy.
