Allergic Rhinitis in Children

  • Overview

    Allergic rhinitis is a reaction that occurs when your child breathes in something he or she is allergic to, like dust, dander or pollen. Sometimes, allergic rhinitis is called hay fever.

    • Almost always genetic
    • Affects up to 20 percent of children and 30 percent of adolescents
    • It's estimated that 75 percent of children with asthma also have allergic rhinitis

    How Boston Children's approaches Allergic Rhinitis

    At Boston Children's, allergy disorders are tackled by a team approach, coordinating care with immunotherapy, behavior modification and investigational therapies. In addition, we offer numerous workshops and one-on-one consultations to help you and your child learn to live with chronic rhinitis.

    Boston Children's is widely recognized as one of the world leaders in allergy and immunology treatment and research.
