Indoor Allergies

Most of us associate allergy with being outside, especially in the Spring and Summer with Hay Fever. The commonest allergy symptom is Rhinitis – a blocked, runny nose, with sneezing and itching. However rhinitis can be all year round, and in that case may be due to indoor allergens, the commonest of which is House Dust Mite. There are other Allergens though – yeasts and fungi, such as Alternaria, Cladosporium, Penicillium (yes the same one that makes the antibiotic) and Aspergillus are all associated with allergy. Old houses with a degree of decay often have these. There are specific IgE tests for these Allergens available at HealthHub. Blood tests are done by our Private Doctor.
