Allergies in Pleasanton and San Ramon, CA

Immune systems are incredibly helpful in finding and destroying harmful germs and bacteria; however, sometimes even immune systems go a little haywire, and they might mistake harmless elements as being dangerous, triggering an immune response known as an allergic reaction. Allergies aren’t just for adults; kids experience them, too. Fortunately, the board-certified pediatricians at TRI-Valley Pediatrics can help your child get their allergies under control.

Signs and Symptoms of Allergies

An allergic reaction can show up in a variety of ways. Here’s how to spot them,

  • Sneezing
  • Runny or itchy nose
  • Stuffy nose
  • Red, watery, or itchy eyes
  • Dry skin
  • Hives (red itchy welts on the skin)
  • Rash
  • Wheezing
  • Persistent cough

Some allergic reactions can be life-threatening. If your child has trouble breathing, has low blood pressure, or is vomiting or experiencing diarrhea, these are signs of anaphylaxis and require immediate medical attention.

What Causes Allergies?

While just about anything can trigger an allergic reaction, our pediatricians most often see allergies to,

  • Dust mites
  • Mold
  • Pollen
  • Latex
  • Foods
  • Medications
  • Insect stings and bites
  • Pests (e.g. mice)
  • Pet dander

Diagnosing and Treating Allergies

When your child comes into the office, we will perform a comprehensive evaluation and go through their medical history before deciding whether an allergy test is necessary. The most common type of allergy test is a skin test, as this provides us with results in as little as 15 minutes. Once we’ve determined what’s causing your child’s allergies we can create an action plan to best treat it. Here at TRI-Valley Pediatrics, we offer a variety of treatment options for children dealing with allergies. We also offer unique treatment options including allergy drops, so children no longer have to dread uncomfortable allergy shots (for more severe allergy cases). We have also been designated one of the few Asthma Champion practices in Northern California.

Allergies don’t rest, and neither do we. This is why our Pleasanton and San Ramon, CA, practices are open 7 days a week including holidays (for established patients). If your little one is having trouble getting their allergies under control, call TRI-Valley Pediatrics today at our Pleasanton Office, (925) 460-8444 or our San Ramon Office, (925) 380-6230 to schedule an evaluation.
