Q2: What are the most common allergens tested for at North Shore Paediatric Allergy Centre?

At NSPAC, where relevant, we are able to test children for various allergens such as pollen, pets, dust mite and specific food types (eg milk, wheat, nuts, seafood, fruit and egg).  We also perform skin prick testing to fresh food and fruits where indicated.  Skin prick tests can also be performed to specific creams and topical preparations (eg sunscreen).
