Paediatric Allergy, Asthma & immunology
Allergies are among the most common conditions affecting children. Child’s immune system fights against infections. If a child has allergies, their immune system wrongly reacts to things that are usually harmless. Pet dander, pollen, dust, mold spores, insect stings, food, and medications are examples of such things. This reaction may cause their body to reciprocate with health problems such as asthma, hay fever, hives, eczema (a rash), or a very severe and unusual reaction called anaphylaxis.
Pediatrics is a branch of medicine which deals with the health, growth, and development of infants, children, and adolescents.
