Conditions We Treat at the Pediatric Respiratory and Immunology Center
Our team of expert specialists provides treatment and education to help patients with a wide array of conditions, including:
- Allergic Skin Disorders
Allergic skin disorders include atopic dermatitis (eczema), contact dermatitis (irritant dermatitis), hives (urticaria), and angioedema.
Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening reaction to an allergen such as a food or medication, latex or an insect sting. It comes on quickly, often within minutes of exposure, and severely affects several functions of the body.
Asthma is a chronic disease marked by narrowed airways and excessive production of mucus.
- Drug Allergies
A drug allergy is an abnormal immune system response to a medication, whether prescription, over-the-counter, or herbal.
- Eosinophilic Esophagitis
Eosinophilic esophagitis is a long-standing allergic inflammatory disease of the esophagus, the tube that delivers food from the mouth to the stomach.
- Food Allergies
A food allergy is an immune system reaction to normally harmless proteins in foods.
- Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders (Immune Deficiency)
These disorders weaken the immune system, the body’s defense mechanism, meaning that infections and other health issues are more likely.
- Nasal Allergies and Eye Allergies
Some allergies trigger a runny nose or red, watery eyes.
- Stinging Insect Allergies
Insect bites and stings can cause an immediate immune response.
