Treatment/Management

Stony Brook Children's Allergy & Immunology photo

Because typically asthma, allergies and immune disorders are chronic conditions, the Allergy/Immunology Division follows children over time, adjusting treatment as needed. Many childhood allergies and even asthma may be outgrown over time.

Available treatment options include allergy medications (pharmacotherapy) for disorders such as hay fever. Allergy shots (immunotherapy) are considered for patients not responding to medication. Children with food allergies are usually instructed in the emergency use of adrenaline autoinjectors, as well as dietary management. Patient education is often helpful for children with dust mite, animal dander, pollen, or mold spore allergy.
