Anaphylaxis is an acute life threatening allergic reaction with symptoms from many body systems.


Angioedema is another term for swelling.

Animal Allergy

An allergy is when your body’s immune system overreacts to things that are normally considered harmless. Some people have an allergic reaction to the dander (skin flakes), saliva or urine of an animal, which is known as an animal allergy.

Antibody Deficiency Disorders

Antibodies are the components of your body’s adaptive immune system that fight infections or prevent infections from occurring. When the body does not produce enough antibodies, this is known as an antibody deficiency disorder.


Asthma is a breathing disorder that involves the airways becoming inflamed.

Common Variable Immunodeficiency

Common variable immunodeficiency is a disorder that affects the ability of the immune system to fight off foreign invaders and infections due to a lack of sufficient antibodies.

Contact Dermatitis

Contact dermatitis is a skin rash that occurs due to contact with something that irritated inflammatory response in the skin.

Drug Allergies

A drug allergy is when a previously sensitized child’s is given a drug/medication which he/she has an abnormal response to.

Dust Mite Allergies

Dust mites are microscopic insects that eat shed human skin cells. When people experience an allergic reaction to exposure to these tiny bugs, it is known as a dust mite allergy.


Eczema is a chronic skin condition, characterized by one or more areas, of itchy, red, dry thickened skin patches.

Environmental Allergies

Environmental allergies are when the immune system overreacts to things normally considered harmless in the environment like pollens, dust mite, animals, and molds.

Food Allergies

Food allergies are when a person develops allergy antibodies (IgE antibodies) to a protein in a food, and when exposed to this protein it causes an allergic reaction.

Food Protein Induced Proctocolitis of Infancy

This is when an infant, typically between 2-8 weeks of age pass bloody, mucusy stools.

Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome

Food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome occurs in a small percentage of infants after ingestion of an offending food, causing repetitive vomiting sometimes with diarrhea leading to dehydration and possibly shock.

Hay Fever

Please see Rhinitis for further information.

Henoch-Schonlein Purpura

Henoch-Schonlein purpura is a common inflammation and bleeding of the small blood vessels of the skin, mucous membranes, joints, intestines and kidneys in children between 2-6 years of age.


These are itchy red bumps on the skin that look like mosquito bites. They come and go and do not leave any mark behind.

IgE-Mediated Food Allergies

IgE type of food allergy refers to a specific type of abnormal immediate-type hypersensitivity immune inflammatory reaction, usually to a protein in a food.

Immune Deficiency Syndromes

Immune deficiency syndrome refers to a broad range of medical disorders that prevent your body from protecting itself from illnesses such as viruses and bacteria. There are a number of different types of congenital and acquired immune deficiency syndromes that can impact the body in a variety of ways.

Innate Immunity Disorders

Primary immunodeficiency diseases are those where the body’s immune system is missing or does not function properly. They can be divided into those involving the innate and adaptive systems.

Latex Allergy

Latex is a rubber derivative that is found in gloves, balloons, condoms, rubber bands, erasers, toys, and many forms of medical equipment such as tubing. When the body’s immune system has an allergic reaction to latex, this is known as a latex allergy.

Milk Allergy

Milk allergy occurs when your child’s body’s immune system (identifies certain cows milk proteins contained in many dairy products, as harmful, triggering an abnormal bodily overreaction.

Mold Allergy

When a child’s body overreacts to a substance that’s normally harmless like mold spores, it’s called mold allergy.

NEMO Syndrome

NEMO syndrome is a rare genetic disease that impacts the immune system that predisposes the patient to frequent and serious infections, it also causes problems related to the skin, as well as the lungs, stomach and urinary tract in some instances.

NK Cell Disorders

Natural killer, or NK cells are white blood (lymphocytes) cells which play an important role in the body’s immune system. They are part of a body’s mechanisms to control the spread of infection, destroy abnormal cells which develop in the body (like cancer cells), and when they function abnormally, they participate in the development of autoimmune diseases (where the body mistakenly attacks its own normal cells).

Oral Allergy Syndrome

Oral allergy syndrome is a type of food allergy where the allergic reaction only affects the lips, mouth and throat.

Peanut Allergy

Peanut allergy is one of the most common food allergies found among children, exposure to even a tiny amount of peanuts can cause potentially severe and life-threatening symptoms for children with peanut allergy.

Pollen Allergy

Pollen allergy is the common name for allergic reactions caused by exposure to a variety of particles like pollen, dust mites, animal fur, mold, etc. It may occur seasonally or all year round.


Allergic rhinitis usually presents in early childhood as an inflammatory reaction in the eyes, nose and throat caused by the body’s response to an allergen (grass, weed pollen, pet dander, dust mites, mold, etc).

Severe Combined Immune Deficiency

Severe combined immune deficiency is a rare genetic birth defect that doesn’t allow the body to develop an immune system, which fights all types of infections.

Shellfish Allergy

Shellfish allergy is when you have an allergic reaction to crab, lobster, shrimp, oysters, scallops, clams, or other shellfish.

Soy Allergy

If a person has an allergic reaction after ingestion of soy protein, this is known as a soy allergy.

Venom Allergies

When the body produces an immune system overreaction in response to venom entering the body, this is known as a venom allergy.

Wheat Allergy

If a person has an allergic reaction to wheat, or gluten, this is known as wheat allergy.

Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome

Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects the immune system and the blood coagulation system.
