Paediatric Allergy

Paediatric Allergy

At the Emirates Specialty Hospital, our paediatric allergy department is thoroughly experienced with treating allergies in children.

With particular attention paid to looking after youngsters and making them feel comfortable in a medical environment, our paediatric allergists are second to none in the United Arab Emirates. Our doctors make assessments on the healthy development of children so parents can rest assured that their loved ones are equipped to handle whatever the future brings.


Including problems of the skin, diet and much more, paediatric allergists go through years of training in medicine before being specifically required to study caring for young people suffering from allergies and respiratory disorders.

Your children are in safe hands at the Emirates Specialty Hospital, with checks being carried out to make sure newborns are healthy, and to arrange vaccination where appropriate.

Our paediatric allergy department works with those who have asthma, chronic cough and allergic rhinitis. Rhinitis is nose inflammation that can happen as a result of being irritated by dust, animal skin particles, pollen and mould.

Paediatric allergists also spend time with children whose sleep is affected by sinusitis, a condition where the sinus inflames due to virus, bacteria, fungus and allergies that patients and parents may not be aware of. Our work has improved the lives of children continuously suffering from headaches or regularly dealing with sore throats, a swollen facial area, fever, as well as pressure in, pain or blockages of the nose.

Emirates Specialty Hospital doctors can also work with children to treat atopic dermatitis or eczema, urticaria (including hives, welts and nettle rash) as well as other conditions relating to allergies.

Paediatric allergy treatments can halt the symptom of nasal discharge and prevent the condition from advancing. We care for skin and bone infections, meningitis and even brain abscesses.

In order to diagnose and treat paediatric allergies, asthma patients can be provided with a pulmonary function test, plus fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) to monitor inflammation of the airways and check the child’s response to medications provided.

Doctors can administer immunotherapy to suppress, enhance or induce a response, or use desensitisation methods (under the tongue or via subcutaneous injection) for hay fever and other aeroallergens.

When taking care of recurrent chest infections, your child is in good hands with specialists certified by the American Board of Paediatrics, providing health support guidance, annual check-ups and basic or neonatal life support.
