DOES YOUR CHILD HAVE ALLERGIES?
Are they always sick? Have you questioned whether your child may have environmental or food allergies?
An estimated 30-62% of children with persistent asthma are allergic to dust mites and about half are sensitive to mold. These indoor allergens can serve as a trigger for asthma attacks, particularly with the added exposures of cold and flu season. Once allergy testing confirms which allergies are present, interventions can be made to significantly reduce exposure to those allergens. The result can be a large reduction in asthma and allergy symptoms and medication use.
Riverside Pediatrics offers nearly painless allergy skin testing and recommends it for children with asthma, eczema, symptoms of food allergy, and seasonal allergies.
Now is the perfect time of the year for allergy testing before the spring allergies really set in. (Testing cannot be done unless the patient has stopped all antihistamine use for at least 3 days prior to testing).
