Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi, India

Allergy Clinic

The problems of long standing cough, wheezing, breathlessness, recurrent pneumonia, asthma, sore eyes, skin rash or eczema and food allergies are on the rising trend. Children are most vulnerable for these problems as body is still developing. Both indoor and outdoor pollution along with other factors are responsible for allergic disorders in children. Once these conditions are not adequately taken care of, these persist in adulthood affecting the quality of life. Allergic disorders are problematic for whole family rather than for an individual. If they are appropriately managed early, allergy can be controlled and people could be free of symptoms for life. Division of Pediatric Pulmonology, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital has started Pediatric allergy clinic for children and adolescents, who are suffering from allergic disorders. A general OPD will be conducted, under supervision of allergy specialist, on every Thursday from 12 noon to 01:00 PM in R. No. G 10 at ward 6, ground floor. Specialized techniques for early diagnosis like skin prick testing and definite immunotherapy are also available.
