Allergies can disrupt children’s lives in so many ways, from chronic skin irritation and breathing problems to life-threatening reactions to foods, medications or environmental allergens. Problems with the immune system, whether present at birth or acquired later, make it difficult for children to fight infections, while autoimmune conditions cause the body to start attacking itself.
