Types of Allergy

Allergy is a multi-organ disease, affecting approximately one in three of the population in the UK at some time in their lives.  Each year the numbers are increasing by 5% with as many as half of all those affected being children.

Allergic conditions take on many forms and can vary in severity from the mildest of hayfever to life threatening anaphylaxis.  In this section, we cover all of the many types of allergic conditions, including allergies to food, drugs, airborne allergens and those affecting the skin.
