Food Allergy

If you think you or your child has a food allergy, make an appointment with your GP.

They will ask you some questions about the pattern of your child’s symptoms, such as:

  • How long did it take for the symptoms to start after exposure to the food? 
  • How long did the symptoms last? 
  • How severe were the symptoms? 
  • Is this the first time these symptoms have occurred? If not, how often have they occurred? 
  • What food was involved and how much of it did your child eat?
