Family Allergy & Asthma has 25+ offices in Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio to better serve patients where they live. Our goal is to provide the best pediatric allergy services to families in the region and we will continue to grow to bring allergy care to new areas that are in need. We seek out only talented and trusted allergists and feel confident that your family will be happy with your doctor.
All of Family Allergy & Asthma’s doctors are board certified by the American Board of Allergy & Immunology. In addition, our allergists are also trained in either pediatrics or internal medicine, so we are very comfortable treating pediatric patients for allergies and asthma. We provide allergy and asthma testing, as well as education and treatment for allergies, asthma, and other immunologic conditions.
Children Allergy Testing & Treatment
Age is not a barrier for allergy testing, so even infants can benefit. At Family Allergy & Asthma, our allergy and asthma doctors and staff have been trained to work with children to make the allergy testing experience as comfortable as possible.
We offer the testing for the following allergies
Stinging Insect Allergies
After testing, our allergy doctors will discuss the best treatment options for your child. This may be a combination of avoidance, medications, and/or immunotherapy. The age in which shots may be recommended to young children is done on a case-by-case basis.
Research has shown that allergy shots can prevent children who have allergic rhinitis from getting asthma.
Children with asthma often have symptoms before they turn five, and one in four children with allergies will develop asthma at some point. Our doctors have the specialized training and experience to determine if your child has asthma, what is causing it, and how best to treat it.
We offer the following testing and treatment options for asthma:
