Allergies can make any adult miserable. For children, the misery can seem even more intense. No matter the time of year, dust and allergens can make it difficult to get outside, or even enjoy activities in your own home. If you think your child may be suffering from allergies, Night Lite Pediatrics Urgent Care can help. We offer comprehensive allergy treatments, so your child can live a happy and healthy life every day of the year. Whether your child suffers from mild seasonal allergies or more severe food allergies, our experienced doctors can develop a treatment plan that is exactly right for your child’s unique needs.
Many children suffer from allergies. In fact, up to 20% of all children have allergies of some kind. The symptoms are typically mild, but can be very frustrating for a young child who is not equipped for discomfort. Sniffling, sneezing, watery eyes, running nose, coughing, swelling, and itching are the most common symptoms. We know that, as a parent, when your child is upset or uncomfortable, all you can think about is helping them feel better. The doctors at Night Lite Pediatrics Urgent Care in Florida have the experience and knowledge you want when someone is treating your child.
While most allergies are mild, some can be life-threatening. Many food allergies including those to peanuts, eggs, soy, wheat, milk, and tree nuts can cause severe allergic reactions for children, including swelling of the throat known as anaphylaxis. And while allergies can sometimes be outgrown, they also have the potential to worsen over time depending on the individual. Because of this, it is incredibly important to ensure your child receives safe and effective allergy treatment if they need it.
At Night Light Pediatrics Urgent Care, we believe in offering comprehensive medical care to our patients. We can provide guidance for parents whose children are diagnosed with allergies. Because children’s bodies are smaller than adults’ and constantly growing and developing, it is important to follow specific directions regarding allergy treatment specifically for children.
The most common allergy medications are antihistamines. Antihistamines block the effects of histamine, a chemical that is released by the body when it is exposed to allergens and can cause some of the worst allergy symptoms including itchy and watery eyes and stuffy nose. Antihistamines are most effective when taken before an allergic reaction has occurred. Nasal sprays containing steroids are sometimes useful for children who suffer from inflammation in the nasal cavity, resulting in difficulty breathing. These medications may be prescribed or found over the counter, and are typically taken on a daily basis. Prescription eye drops can also be effective in helping prevent red, itchy eyes. At Night Lite Pediatrics Urgent Care, your child will be treated by an experienced pediatric doctor who can work with you to develop a customized allergy treatment plan that is tailored to your child’s specific needs.
