Allergies can be tough to diagnose. Allergic reactions can affect the skin, lungs, digestive system and even the cardiovascular system in a number of ways. This means they often resemble other illnesses, but they do not respond to the same treatments as the illnesses they resemble. This can be frustrating—and at times frightening—for both parents and children.
If your child has been struggling with allergies, you can rely on the expert care provided by the board certified pediatric allergy and asthma specialists at Riley at IU Health. Our allergists can help you and your child reach a correct diagnosis, identify your child’s specific allergy triggers and get you both back to leading a healthy and normal life.
