Children's Allergies with Dr. Heather Minto
Allergy season is here, and they can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, race or socioeconomic status. However, allergies are more common in children and are caused when the immune system reacts to a specific allergen that has been inhaled, touched or eaten. Among the most common health problems, more than 50 million people are afflicted with asthma, seasonal hay fever or other allergy-related conditions each year. Today Dr. Heather Minto, allergist and immunologist, joins us from Akron Children's Hospital.
