Allergy & Immunology

Get the best treatment at PIH Health for your asthma or allergy symptoms. You’ll work with an allergist―a doctor who can diagnose, treat and manage conditions related to the immune system.

What Are Allergies?

An allergy is when your immune system reacts to something that does not bother most people. Allergies can run in families. People with allergies are often sensitive to more than one thing, including:

  • Cosmetics
  • Dust mites
  • Food
  • Insect bites or stings
  • Medicines
  • Mold
  • Pet dander
  • Pollen

Does My Child Have Allergies?

Talk to your child’s pediatrician about seeing an allergy specialist if your child is frequently sick with a cold, runny nose, or congestion. These symptoms may be a result of an allergy or weak immune system.
