When to see a specialist for allergies
Eugene Pediatric Associates treats many children with allergies. If necessary, we may recommend that your child see a specialist. Indications that your child should see a specialist may include:
- Suspected food allergy.
- Severe allergic reaction.
- Allergy symptoms that cannot be alleviated by over-the-counter or prescription medications.
- Child needs allergy shots.
- After hospitalization for severe asthma or food anaphylaxis.
An allergist may be a helpful member of your child’s allergy healthcare team if your child needs allergy shots, oral food desensitization, or struggles with difficult-to-manage allergies and/or asthma.
