Allergy Info For Our Patients
Only your personal physician can provide you with medical advice. If Dr. Feigenbaum is not your physician, the following should not be construed as medical advice.)
With children 6 and over, we can generally perform allergy testing for foods and environmental/airborne allergens. Pulmonary function testing (for asthma and chronic cough) also usually works well.
In our practice, we generally avoid starting allergy shots in children. We focus on allergen avoidance and if medications seem necessary, using an (FDA-approved for kids) medication at the lowest effective dose and for the least amount of time.
