We can help you and your children breathe easier.
Part of the University of Mississippi Medical Center, Children's of Mississippi allergists and immunologists are board-certified in the diagnosis and treatment of allergies, asthma, and other diseases of the immune system. Whether a child needs relief from pet or dust allergies or parents need help managing a child's food allergy or asthma, our team can help.
Allergies are what happens when our immune system fights foreign bodies like pet dander, foods, even materials like latex or a new laundry detergent. Allergic reactions may be annoying, like a runny nose caused by seasonal allergies, or potentially harmful, like anaphylaxis caused by a food allergy. Allergists at Children's of Mississippi work with families to help lessen the symptoms--and concerns--that come with allergies in children.
The same substances that cause allergies can also trigger asthma symptoms. As with allergies, asthma symptoms are the body's response to a foreign substance, but with asthma, the reaction affects a child's lungs and airways, causing an asthma attack.
We diagnose and treat children and adolescents with a wide range of allergic and immunologic disorders, including, but not limited to:
