Embarrassing Bodies Kids: Episode 3

Allergies

Dr Pixie visits Bellevue Primary School to wage her war against allergies. Kids and parents are tested, and 50% of the group are allergic to one or more things. Allergies may be on the rise, and pollution, excessive cleanliness, are thought to be the culprits as well as modern innovations such as air con, central heating and wall to wall carpeting which allow dust mites and some forms of mould to thrive.

The EB team would like to thank:

Hi I'd like to know where i can purchase the testing kit used on the show. As I've tried lloyds pharmacy, boots and a few smaller chemists but none of them have them. My children and I have a few allergies and this would be great if I could get them. Thanks
