My Child Has Terrible Allergies: Can You Help?

My Child Has Terrible Allergies: Can You Help?

Life with a child suffering from allergies can feel like an uphill battle. You see your child struggle with the symptoms, whether they're seasonal or year-round, and it often feels like there's no end in sight. 

At Riviera Allergy Medical Center, we want to assure you that there's help available. Dr. Ulrike Ziegner and our expert team are here to guide you and your child through the process of diagnosing and treating allergies effectively.

Understanding your child's allergies

Understanding the cause of your child’s allergies is the first step toward managing them better. Allergies are the body’s abnormal immune responses to ordinarily harmless substances called allergens. 

For some children, allergies are set off by environmental factors such as pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds, dust mites, mold spores, or pet dander. In other cases, triggers are foods like peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soy, sesame, fish, and shellfish. 

It's also possible for children to react to insect stings, certain medications, or even substances they come in contact with, like latex. 

Symptoms can range from mild, like a runny nose or skin rash, to severe, such as difficulty breathing or anaphylaxis. It's essential to get a precise diagnosis from a specialist like Dr. Ziegner, to ensure your child gets the best possible care.

Seeking expert care 

When your child's allergies grow disruptive, it's time to seek expert care. The team at Riviera Allergy Medical Center specializes in pediatric allergy treatments

Dr. Ziegner, who is also a board-certified pediatrician, has extensive knowledge and experience in the field and can provide an accurate diagnosis with a tailored, effective treatment plan for your child. With her help, you can manage your child's allergies and significantly improve its quality of life.

Comprehensive allergy testing

Getting an accurate diagnosis is key. Dr. Ziegner conducts comprehensive allergy testing to identify the allergens that are causing your child's symptoms. This could involve skin tests, blood tests, or elimination diets for food allergies. 

The team at Riviera Allergy Medical Center ensures a comfortable, caring environment for your child during these tests.

Personalized allergy treatment plans

Depending on the results of the allergy tests, Dr. Ziegner creates a personalized treatment plan for your child. This could involve avoidance strategies, medications, or immunotherapy, depending on the severity and type of allergies your child has. 

You also receive extensive education and support to help manage your child's allergies at home.
