Pediatric Allergology and Pulmonology
We provide thorough screenings and therapy for hay fever, asthma, chronic cough, shortness of breath, eczema and nettle-rash. Even though these disorders are getting more common year by year, fortunately the range of available treatments is broadening as well.
The appearance of hay fever, asthma and allergic skin rashes mostly depend on hereditary factors, but environmental elements, the presence of provoking allergens and the development of sensitive reactions to them also play an important role.
Certain allergies start in different, typical phases of life. Infancy is the age when atopic dermatitis and food allergies might develop, and during early childhood and primary school age, asthma is the most common allergy. Usually symptoms of hay fever first appear during teenage years, but lately the onset of this type of allergy can be observed at a younger age in an increasing number of cases.
We diagnose allergic and chronic pulmonary disorders by skin tests, blood tests, pulmonary function tests and ultrasound examinations. Treatment is usually planned in coordination with other specialists, such as a pediatric gastroenterologist or dermatologist.
