About us

We are a specialist service and national referral centre for all types of urticaria (hives, weals or angioedema) where specific diagnosis and/or management are problematic.

At the urticaria clinic, our team of dermatologists perform all necessary investigations, including those for evaluating the physical urticarias.

We are also a national referral centre for mastocytosis (rare condition of too many specialised cells containing histamine).

We work with allergists and haematologists.
