Ask José any paediatric (children’s) allergy related question and he will personally respond to you within 24 hours. When submitting your question please include as much relevant information as possible including your child’s age and any medical history if applicable.
José is a Consultant Paediatrician and fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, with over 16 years of experience in Paediatrics and over 12 years in Paediatric Allergy.
José’s primary focus of interest in Allergy is in immunotherapy and desensitization, mainly to house dust mites and pollens – both sublingual and subcutaneous. José is the co-author of a study titled “Increase in Multiple Nut Reactivity with Increasing Age is Not an Artefact of Incomplete Allergy Testing”, which explored the introduction of nuts into an infant/child’s diet. This research found that not introducing nuts that children are not allergic to will increase their risk of developing allergy to those nuts later in life.
José is fluent in English, French and Portuguese.
Please note: Due to the complex nature of this subject area it is possible your question may not have a simple or straight forward answer, in which case you will be advised on next steps.
