What happens during a consultation with a pediatric allergist?
At your child’s first appointment, the allergist will conduct a physical examination, including a painless skin test, and ask questions in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of their health history and allergic reactions. Your child may also be referred for a blood test.
During your follow-up visit, your allergist will discuss the results of the allergy tests with you and develop a treatment plan tailored for your child. They may also recommend any of the following:
- Medication to treat symptoms
- Changes to your home or your child’s diet to avoid certain allergens (allergy triggers)
- Injections or oral medications to gradually reduce your child’s sensitivity to allergens
- Emergency medications to have on hand in case of a severe reaction.
Don’t hesitate to ask your doctor questions or share your concerns about the prescribed treatment plan. You will play a crucial role, and it is important that you have all the information you need to help your child recover.
