Insect Allergy testing at MUMS

Having an Allergy Test to see if you have a particular insect allergy at MUMS Solihull is easy. We offer simple blood tests but combine a number of different insects together to make a profile to give you a bigger picture of what type of insects you may be allergic to.

You may choose to have this test within a GP Consultation to discuss your history and symptoms.

The Consultation with our experienced GPs is £100.00. The GP will perform the allergy blood test and explain the results to you.

You may choose to have a simple £30.00 Phlebotomy appointment in which to be tested for the Insect Allergy Test. However – if the results are showing abnormalities then you will need a  GP consultation to have the results explained to you.

For children under 16 years old you will need to book in with our specialist consultant paediatrician for a consultation and allergy testing. The cost of a consultation with the paediatrician is £230.00 plus the cost of the test.

Insect Allergy Test costs £166.00 

The Insect  Allergy Test includes :

  • Common Wasp
  • Yellow Jacket
  • Bee
  • Paper Wasp
  • Yellow Hornet
  • White Faced Hornet

Results are rapid and take just a couple of days.

You may want to know the difference between a sting and an allergy.

Most people aren’t allergic. By knowing the difference, you can decide if you need to see a doctor.

A normal sting causes a reaction, pain and redness or in some cases swelling and continual pain.

An allergic reaction is serious and prompt medical treatment is required straight away.

A mild allergic reaction may cause one or more of these symptoms at the site of the sting:

  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Pimple-like spots
  • Mild to moderate swelling
  • Warmth

This Insect combination test gives our GPs and you a good idea as to what it is that is causing your allergic symptoms.

Once tested you can avoid being stung – for example:

  • Recognise nests and avoid them.
  • Wear shoes and socks outdoors
  • Wear long sleeved upper garments when in woods and rural areas.
  • Avoid perfumes and bright clothes that attract inspects.
  • Consider using screens on windows and doors at home
  • You may also want to use insect repellents when you’re outside.
  • garbage cans regularly with insecticide, and keep the cans covered.

Our allergy component testing may be a better option for you than our single allergy tests.

We offer allergy testing 6 days a week.
