Allergies are when your child’s immune system reacts to something in the environment or a food and causes sneezing, itchy eyes, cough, and possible itchy throat. There can also be more severe symptoms such as hives or difficulty breathing.
We help treat the allergy along with what caused it. Total avoidance of the cause may not always be possible and medications may help.
Asthma is a respiratory condition that may present with coughing, wheezing and/or chest tightness. These symptoms usually get worse at night or with activity. Some children develop asthma more during the change of seasons. Other children exhibit asthma symptoms when they develop a viral illness that presents with cough and congestion.
There are a variety of ways we can help treat asthma. The most important thing is to educate the parent and child what to do to avoid any symptoms and interruptions in there daily schedule.
