Everyone responds to allergies differently, with reactions ranging from mild to severe.

Allergies can be caused by a range of factors, including dust, grass, pollen, food or a reaction to certain products.

If you’re experiencing an allergy that is having a negative impact on your everyday life, or you’re worried that you may have a more serious allergy that you need to manage, our GPs will be able to help.

Our experienced GPs are available from 7am until 8pm every day and you can talk them on on your smartphone, tablet or desktop computer without having to leave the house.

Their first step will be to identify the allergy that you’re suffering from. If you don’t know what you’ve got, our GPs will ask you to describe your symptoms and use this information to work out what the allergy could be.

From here, they can suggest ways to manage the problem. In certain cases, you might be asked to refrain from consuming certain products that could be contributing to your allergy. If your symptoms don’t return, it’s likely that the product (or an ingredient within it) was the cause.

Of course, this isn’t always practical. For example, allergies such as hayfever and asthma can be caused by a reaction to airborne particles such as grass or pollen, neither of which are particularly easy to avoid. In this sort of situation, our doctors can recommend medication that will help to deal with your symptoms.
