Pediatric Allergy

Allergic diseases increase every day and continues to increase in the world and Turkey. There are more than one reason for this increment. Traffic density, change of nutrition, air pollution and life style are some of the reasons for the increment. The importance of pediatric allergy gain importance after allergic diseases increase.

The standards have been developed in Europe for allergic diseases. In accordance with these standards, there must be an allergist or pediatric allergist in Department of Pediatric Allergic Diseases. Beside pediatric allergist, it is important to fulfill the contidions for scratch tests, patch tests, respiratory function tests and treatment of allergic shock. It is not enough to hang out the sign “Allergy Center” to the door.  Most of Allergy Centers are away from these conditions and don't have even specially pediatric allergist. In department of pediatric allergic diseases which have no pediatric allergist, it is difficult to diagnose allergic diseases because of insufficient opportunities and it is not possible to graft allergy vaccine and making challenge tests which must made by allergist.

Allergic Asthma

Allergies are all about your immune system. The job of your immune system is to protect you from germs such as bacteria and viruses. But if you have an allergy, your immune system will also defend your body against a harmless substance such as cat dander or dust mites.

When you come across an allergy trigger, your body makes molecules called IgE antibodies. These trigger a series of reactions that can cause swelling, runny nose, and sneezing.

In people with allergic asthma, the muscles around their airways begin to tighten. The airways themselves also become inflamed and flooded with mucus.

The symptoms of allergic asthma are generally the same as those of non-allergic asthma. They include:
