About Our Program


The incidence of pediatric allergies and asthma is rising rapidly in the pediatric populations of New England. The Pediatric Allergy Group at Mass General for Children recognizes the needs of these patients and provides a comprehensive program for diagnosing and treating allergies and asthma.

A Comprehensive Range of Services

We provide diagnosis and treatment for asthma as well as the full range of allergic conditions including:

  • Environmental and food allergies in children
  • Allergic rhinitis
  • Atopic dermatitis (eczema)
  • Urticaria (hives)
  • Sinusitis
  • Special services include:
  • Measurements of lung function, including oxygen saturation
  • Complete allergy skin testing
  • Imaging, including chest and sinus radiology

State-of-the-Art Care at a World-Renowned Academic Medical Center

Our group provides first-class care for each patient. Diagnosis is achieved via history, physical examination, allergy skin testing and laboratory testing. Once patients are diagnosed, we control allergy via a combination of environment controls, drug therapy and allergy shots. Our team includes nurses with particular interest in food allergies and asthma. We consider parents and referring physicians to be full partners in the treatment of children and we provide comprehensive allergy education for patients and families.
