If your child suffers from allergies or other problems with his immune system, a pediatric allergist/immunologist has special skills to treat your child. Your child’s immune system fights infections. If your child has allergies, her immune system wrongly reacts to things that are usually harmless. Pet dander, pollen, dust, mold spores, insect stings, food, and medications are examples of such things. This reaction may cause her body to respond with health problems such as asthma, hay fever, hives, eczema (a rash), or a very severe and unusual reaction called anaphylaxis.
Pediatric allergists/immunologists generally provide treatment for the following:
- Hay fever (allergic rhinitis)
Eczema (atopic dermatitis)
- Hives (urticaria, welts)
Severe reactions to foods, insect stings, and medications (anaphylaxis)
- Immune disorders that lead to the following:
- Frequent sinusitis, pneumonia, or diarrhea
- Thrush and abscesses that keep coming back
- Severe, unusual infections
