What allergy tests are available in the Ashe Street Clinic
We investigate and treat a wide range of allergic disorder, including:
- Hay Fever.
- Food allergies.
Kerry Skin Clinic carries out the following allergy tests.

- Blood allergy testing for airborne and food allergies.
- Skin patch testing, for allergies to cosmetics, toiletries, jewellery, clothing etc.
- Exclusion diets for food allergies.
House dust mites can trigger allergic reactions such as asthma, eczema, and rhinitis. Cutting down mite numbers may reduce these reactions.
Hopefully this information sheet will answer a few questions and point you in the right direction to reducing mite numbers in the home.
Dust everywhere twice weekly with a damp duster.
Hoover the whole room (including the curtains, the mattress and under the bed) twice weekly.
Avoid storing dust-collecting objects in the bedroom (e.g. stuffed toys, old books, etc.)
Use a foam pillow.
Use non-woollen blankets or an artificial fibre continental quilt (not an eiderdown).
Intolerance to sugar or yeast or both can cause many problems, including skin rashes, bowel problems, vaginal thrush, recurrent sore throats, chronic fatigue, irritability, depression and multiple other vague complaints. This has also been called “Candida”. However, a more appropriate term is food intolerance. Many of these problems will improve or clear completely by going on a sugar-free, yeast-free diet.
