Allergy Testing Services in Singapore
Dr. Tan & Partners (DTAP) clinic provides holistic and comprehensive allergy testing and screening and allergy treatment at our clinics.
Our body immune system can overreact to substances such as food, seafood, animal and insect, pollens, molds, house dust mites.
Most allergy appears during childhood, but some allergy appears later in life.
We provide single allergy test and comprehensive allergy testing to test for a particular allergen or group of allergens. We also offer Sublingual immunotherapy or Oraltek spray to help treat allergies.
We provide a private and discreet environment for you to discuss your medical issues with our doctors.
Our list of Allergy Services
Allergy symptoms range from the life-threatening to just mildly irritating. Often, we may have symptoms that we do not automatically relate to being caused by allergies. For example, many people sneeze a few times upon waking up and blame it on the temperature or the air conditioner when this is actually caused by an allergy. The symptoms then affect them throughout the rest of the day causing them to not be able to concentrate or perform at the peak of their abilities. However, these symptoms can be so mild that most people do not even know they are suffering from them.
Many people also have the mistaken impression that we are born with allergies and do not develop any new ones throughout life. We have come across many patients whom we detect an allergy to a particular food and were caught completely by surprise as they have been eating this same food all their lives and always assumed that it was not causing any problems. Our immune system is constantly adapting to the environment around it. Any protein that is not part of your body is considered foreign and the immune system naturally wants to get rid of it. The immune system is supposed to be smart enough to adapt its response such that it responds mildly to certain proteins and more strongly to others. However, sometimes it responds too strongly to the “wrong” proteins and this essentially is what we term an allergy.
Allergy testing is simple and virtually painless. It can be done via a blood test or skin prick test. Our Doctor will advise you on which test best suits your unique situation. Unlike what most people think, allergies can actually be cured. This is achieved via a method known as immunotherapy. This method works by exposing the body to tiny amounts of the allergen on a daily basis. This helps the immune system identify the allergen as a non-threat and tones down its response over time.

Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT)
Sublingual immunotherapy is the only treatment that acts on the natural course of the allergic disease by inducing tolerability of the immune system towards the allergen that you are allergic to. It also helps prevent development of asthma in patients with allergic rhinitis. Hence, symptoms and the need for medicine are significantly reduced, which helps improve quality of life
Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) is only available at our Scotts Branch.
