Pediatric Allergy Services Deal with Which Diseases?

The child allergy unit is responsible for diagnosing, identifying, and treating childhood diseases caused by allergic reasons. The diseases covered by the child allergy unit are as follows:

  • Bronchial asthma
  • Allergic rhinitis
  • Allergic conjunctivitis
  • Atopic dermatitis (Eczema)
  • Urticaria (commonly known as hives)
  • Severe allergic reactions (Anaphylaxis)
  • Food allergies
  • Insect allergies
  • Drug allergies

These diseases can often manifest as redness and itching on the skin, as well as symptoms like a runny nose, shortness of breath, wheezing, diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting, dry cough, and blood or mucus in the stool. The child allergy unit plays a crucial role in diagnosing the disease by understanding these symptoms and utilizing the necessary test methods. During this process, the child allergy unit may request blood tests, patch tests, provocation tests, skin tests, or respiratory function tests from the patient.

In this case, the patient needs to have the necessary tests conducted through the relevant healthcare unit in the hospital and have the test results evaluated by the doctor. Based on the test results and the patient's complaints, a diagnosis is made, and a suitable treatment method is determined and implemented. Treatment methods applied in this unit include medication, allergy shots, and avoiding allergenic substances as appropriate.
