Testing and Treatment for Allergies in Manassas and Haymarket, VA
Pediatric Allergy Injections at PediatriCare
PediatriCare of Northern Virginia helps your children fight allergies for many common allergens such as dust, mold, pollen, grass, weed, tree, and animal allergies.
First, your child’s pediatrician will determine which allergens are causing your symptoms. Allergy symptoms are a body’s immune system attacking the allergy. A small amount of the allergen is injected into your child and the dose is increased over time. Slowly, the immune system makes an antibody that stops allergens from causing symptoms.
Allergy shots are given over a period of several years to change your child’s immune response to allergens.
Allergy shots can improve allergy and asthma symptoms and lessen the need to take medications.
Contact PediatriCare of Northern Virginia today if your child is experiencing severe allergy symptoms.
