Landmark 'Pediatric Allergies in America' Survey Uncovered Negative Impact of Allergy Symptoms on Children

parents (21 percent) said allergies limit their children's activities,

compared with only 11 percent of parents whose child did not suffer

from allergies.

-- Allergy symptoms interfere with children's education. Forty percent of

parents of children with allergic rhinitis report their condition

of parents of children without allergic rhinitis who attribute lower

performance at school to health issues.

-- Although the most bothersome symptom is a stuffed up nose (27 percent),

almost half (46 percent) of parents of children with allergic rhinitis

reported serious symptoms - such as headache and ear and facial pain.

"Similar to what we have learned about adults, many children with nasal allergies are not satisfied with current treatments. This dissatisfaction is one reason why nasal allergy sufferers sometimes discontinue or switch medications," said Michael Blaiss, MD, Clinical Professor of Pediatrics and Medicine at the University of Tennessee. "We have information that tells us how, in fact, children suffer with this condition, how it truly affects their quality of life and that there is a need out there for better treatments to control allergies in the pediatric population."

using prescription medication to treat their nasal allergy symptoms;

but of those, more than half (57 percent) have changed their

medication, with parents citing the medication was not effective enough
