Your child's doctor may treat your child using immunotherapy (allergy shots) or medication that includes steroidal and antihistamine nose sprays and antihistamine pills.

There are many things you can do at home to help reduce your child's allergic reactions:

  • Vacuum frequently and use air filters.
  • Send pets outdoors more often, bathing them, or limiting the number of rooms they're allowed in can also help.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
