When it comes to asthma and allergies in kids (and conditions related to the immune system), Nemours’ highly trained and experienced pediatric allergy, asthma and immunology teams can help. Our goals are simple: To relieve symptoms as quickly as possible and give you the tools you’ll need to best manage your child’s allergy condition at home.
Nemours’ pediatric allergists diagnose and treat asthma and all types of allergies in children, from hay fever to food allergies. Our immunologists (doctors who specialize in malfunctions of the immune system such as autoimmune diseases, hypersensitivities, immune deficiency and transplant rejection) have a high level of expertise in diagnosing and treating immune system conditions in children, such as immune deficiency.
We’ll perform a complete exam and ask about symptoms, severity and timing. And we’ll work closely with Nemours’ experts from other pediatric specialty areas to provide a long-term management plan tailored to your pediatric allergy, asthma, or immunology needs.
