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

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

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."
