The majority of adults who have allergies started experiencing symptoms during childhood. In fact, allergies are one of the most chronic diseases among children. Any child can be affected by allergic reactions, but children with family histories of allergic reactions tend to have a greater risk.

Allergies can come in many different forms including skin rashes like eczema, asthma, hay fever, and food allergies. Hay fever is the most common childhood allergy. Its symptoms include runny nose, sneezing, congestion, and itchy, watery eyes. These allergies can be seasonal for some children, while for others they may be year round.

Identifying allergies early is the best way to improve quality of life. It can also help with school age children by decreasing the amount of time they will have to miss due to their allergies.

Allergies can lead to a number of symptoms in children. They are commonly the culprit for chronic nasal congestion that can be particularly problematic for a child’s sleep habits. Early diagnosis and treatment of the underlying allergy can help the child get a better night’s sleep.

Allergies are also notorious for causing ear inflammation that can lead to an increased number of ear infections. Children may have problems hearing, developing speech, and they may experience itching, popping, or stopped up ears.

For school children, allergy symptoms can lead to an increased amount of absences. By seeking diagnosis of potential allergies, you can ensure that your child is properly treated. If your child has severe asthma, it is important to provide the school with their asthma action plan and discuss emergency medications that your child may need.

At Advanced Allergy and Asthma Associates we have years of experience diagnosing and treating allergies in patients of all ages, including children. If your child is experiencing any of the common symptoms of allergies, we recommend that you schedule an appointment as soon as possible so we can develop a treatment plan that can help manage them. If you live in the Crystal Lake area, and you would like to learn more about the services we provide, please call us today.
