YOUR PROBLEM: YOUR KID IS A SNIFFLING, SNEEZING MESS
THE ALLERGIST: Eric Glasofer, MD, Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center, specializing in asthma, nasal allergies, pediatric allergies
HIS GAME PLAN: Pinpoint the primary cause through a thorough assessment—and then keep your kid away from what his body doesn’t like. When it comes to children, “anything you can do in terms of avoidance helps,” says Dr. Glasofer. Whether it’s allergen-proofing the home and bedroom (regular cleaning, closed windows and mattress covers are a good start) or giving your child a bath after playing outside to rinse off allergy-producing particles like pollen, avoidance measures will help decrease your child’s exposure and any resulting irritation.
HIS BACKGROUND: Treating allergies for over 25 years, Dr. Glasofer first started out as a pediatrician. Later, he specialized (again) in Allergy and Immunology at Jefferson Medical College.
WAITING ROOM STATS: Call ahead, even if your current symptoms are mild. In the thick of allergy season it could take you up to two weeks to get an appointment.
