Have you been noticing a seasonal change in your child's wellbeing? Allergies negatively impact children just as much as they affect adults, and if your child is struggling with this issue, we here at Surfside Pediatrics in Ventura, CA, are here to help—read on to learn more.
Why Does My Child Have Allergies?
Allergies can develop at any age, and can potentially disappear over time. Kids can be allergic to the same substances adults are. Such as:
- Dust mites
- Pet dander
Is Your Child Struggling With Allergies?
If your child has adverse reactions through ingestion or inhalation, it's necessary to seek medical attention from our Ventura, CA, office. Contact one of our pediatricians if one or more of the following persists:
- Postnasal drip and congestion
- Itchy, watery, red eyes
- Recurring ear infections
- Headache associated with fever
How a Pediatrician Can Help
If your child experiences congestion, coughing, skin rashes, or trouble breathing, allergies could likely be to blame. To accurately diagnose and treat them, our pediatrician may refer your child to an allergist what allergens could be the cause. When symptoms worsen and begin to interfere with your child's sleep, diet, school, and overall health, we highly consider prescribing an allergy test for safety.
