Allergy Testing In London

With over half a million procedures undertaken, you're in safe hands

We understand how frustrating it can be when there seems to be no solution to a skin complaint - when the expensive moisturisers and cleansers don’t deliver the results that their packaging promises; when those 'life changing' masks and serums just fail to get the job done... We're here to tell you that you’re not alone. In fact, a lot of people are familiar with the struggle against a skin complaint that seemingly has no rhyme or reason.

Sometimes we need to look a little deeper….

Lesley Says

“I’ve seen so many severe skin complaints solved with allergy testing. Long term problems like acne or rosacea are much easier to treat once the root of the problem is uncovered.”

Dr Khan Says

“Our Allergy Check is very advanced - it covers a multitude of food and environmental allergens. With detailed, personalised results, we find it yields incredible results.”

Allergy Testing Before & Afters

The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide

Sometimes, it takes gaining an understanding of the inside functions to gain a clearer sense of exactly what is happening on the outside. This is where Allergy Testing can be a game-changer.

Our comprehensive Allergy Check test is exceedingly thorough, using IgE antibody reactions to assess both environmental and food stressors within the body. Just 10 working days after a simple blood-prick test, you'll receive an extensive report detailing every perceivable allergic response, ranging from 'highly reactive' right the way through to the moderate and the low.

We realise that many people suffering day in, day out with allergies just don't have the 3 month turnaround time that it takes when pursuing a test with the National Health Service. That's why, from us, you’ll receive exhaustive results in just 10 working days, and get definitive answers fast.

What’s ideal about the test itself? It only requires 6 drops of blood - no intimate swabbing, no lengthy assessments - just a simple finger prick test to extract a minute blood sample. Following that, results come as a comprehensive overview of levels of reactivity, free of any difficult medical jargon.

Without medical insight, the chances of you getting to the bottom of very specific allergy triggers - Hazelnut Pollen or Horse dander for example - are pretty slim. That is what makes an Allergy Check with Harley Street Skin something of a secret weapon. Goodbye hives, bumps, redness, peeling and dryness!

Allergy Testing FAQs

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have

It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...

While most allergy symptoms are mild, they tend to develop quickly and can be a nuisance.

Common symptoms include sneezing, itchy eyes, wheezing, raised rashes, swollen lips, and stomach pain. These symptoms will vary depending on the severity of your allergy - and in severe cases can lead to anaphylaxis - a life threatening immune response which requires immediate medical attention. Anaphylactic shock affects the whole body and can develop minutes after exposure to the allergen.

With regards to skin, allergic responses are much milder but can lead to long standing skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, hives, blisters, excessive itching, peeling, flushing and/or visible irritation.

If you are experiencing any of the above and just cannot get to the root cause, you may very well be suffering with an undiagnosed allergy...

An allergy check with Harley Street Skin is a very simple process. It works by testing a small blood sample - around 6 drops - for what is known as ' IgE antibodies'. IgE antibodies are released as an immune response when your body encounters something it is allergic to. Elevated levels of IgE in response to a certain substance then indicate a reaction is taking place.


Patients have two testing options:

  1. Purchase a test kit, perform a simple blood prick test at home and then send off your sample for examination. After 10 days you will then receive a comprehensive breakdown of results via the post.
  2. Complete a blood prick test with us at the clinic and then let us handle things from there on out. Your results will come back to us, and you'll simply need to book in to discuss the findings with one of our knowledgeable practitioners.

Results: All results are given in accordance with a numbered scale that details exactly how severe your reaction to all 38 particular allergens.

Allergy Check Tests from Harley Street Skin cost £175 for an at-home test kit.

To complete an in-clinic test, let us take care of the process from start to finish (this includes a consultation with a medical practitioner to thoroughly discuss your findings and potential treatment plan for adapting your diet/lifestyle in accordance with said results) will cost £275.

Our Allergy Check Test will look for responses to certain foods - such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, wheat, meat, fish and dairy - as well as reactions to certain environmental allergens. These include various types of tree, pollen, varieties of grass/insect and animal dander.

A full list includes:

    Almond

    Apple

    Ash (European)

    Bahia grass

    Bermuda grass

    Birch

    Carrot

    Cat dander

    Cladosporium herbarum

Put simply, an allergy causes a more severe and immediate reaction which can - in extreme cases - be fatal. An 'allergy' is defined by an autoimmune response where your body releases Immunoglobulin E (IgE). When your body encounters an allergen, it releases these IgE antibodies which then travel to the cells that release histamine and other chemicals. This is when an allergic response will manifest. Allergic reactions most commonly cause issues which affect the lungs, nose, throat or skin.

Intolerances, on the other hand, typically refer to food sensitivities. These sensitivities are often (although not exclusively) linked to digestion and a body's inability to process a certain ingredient. They are substantially less dangerous and time-sensitive, although can be extremely uncomfortable and/or painful to experience. Associated symptoms are more frequently noted as: weight control issues, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, upset stomachs and cramping.

If you feel your allergies may be more closely linked to a particular food ingredient, you may wish to instead pursue one of our Food Intolerance Tests.

The test itself is very quick. The finger prick blood test can be completed in a matter of minutes, with results available within just 10 working days of receiving your sample. The results then come in the form of a comprehensive list of all allergens, scoring between 0 and 6 on a reactivity scale. These numbers then correspond with a category (either 'no', 'low', 'moderate' or 'high' reaction).
