Allergy symptoms in kids can cause discomfort, sleep disturbances, attention problems, and missed school days. While over-the-counter treatments can be helpful, they can sometimes only do so much. If your child is affected by uncomfortable, recurring, or even life-threatening allergy symptoms, he or she may benefit from professional treatment. Today's allergy treatments are designed to do more than just manage symptoms. In some cases, they can even reduce your child's sensitivity to allergens.
