Dr. Kennedy Pediatric allergists / immunologists treat children from birth through the teenage years. Their choice to specialize in pediatric allergy and immunology equips them to provide the most experience in dealing with the unique medical needs of children who have allergies and immune system problems. Pediatric allergists/ immunologists provide treatment for the following:

  • Asthma
  • Hay fever (allergic rhinitis)
  • Sinusitis
  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis)
  • Hives (urticaria, welts)
  • Severe reactions to foods, insect stings, and medications (anaphylaxis)
  • Immune disorders that lead to the following:
  • Frequent sinusitis, pneumonia, or diarrhea
  • Thrush and abscesses that keep coming back
  • Severe, unusual infections

Pediatric allergists / immunologists diagnose allergic conditions by using special testing. Newer forms of these tests may be almost painless. Treatment may combine avoiding things that cause symptoms, immunotherapy (allergy shots), or medication. Tests and effective treatments also are available for various causes of a weakened immune system.
