We provide comprehensive testing for children with allergies. This includes skin prick testing for outdoor allergens such as house dust mites, food and drugs. Blood tests can also be done.
Like most allergies, treatment will consist of allergen avoidance and the use of medications.
Antihistamines are safe and effective even in very young children.
Topical steroids such as nasal sprays are also safe options. As they require a longer time to work, they need to be used regularly over days to weeks to reap the benefits. They are particularly helpful in reducing nasal blockage or congestion.
Please consult a doctor for a proper diagnosis before administering medication.
