Immunotherapy Services in Manchester, CT
When your child's allergies cannot be alleviated by medication, immunotherapy
may be your best option. Immunotherapy works by injecting gradually increasing
doses of the allergen into the child, thus building up the body's
tolerance to the allergen. Immunotherapy can decrease the frequency and
severity of your child's allergic reactions.
Immunotherapy has been proven successful with the following types of allergens:
- Animal danders
Allergy Evaluations & Diagnostic Testing
Through an allergy evaluation, our Manchester pediatric team can help find
the source of your child's allergic reactions. We use breathing tests
to determine if your child's allergies have an impact on their breathing,
potentially causing asthma or other lung complications. Additionally,
we offer prick testing, which is a procedure where we place safe, minimal
amounts of allergens onto your child's skin in order to test for reactions.
If you have noticed that your child exhibits symptoms such as itching in
the mouth, lip swelling, hives, diarrhea, or cramps after eating certain
foods, then it is recommended you have them officially tested for allergies.
More serious symptoms that require immediate medical attention include
a drop in blood pressure, tightening of the throat, and difficulty breathing.
Our Manchester allergy care team can help find the cause of your child's
symptoms and develop a treatment plan.
