Abstract

In children, allergic rhinitis is considered the most common chronic disease, affecting as many as 40% of the US population, an increasing trend in prevalence seen for many allergies, and is a very common encounter in everyday practice. We believe that through proper recognition and intervention, quality-of-life for the patient can be influenced by the clinician, which will result in improved outcomes in health and function. Children with allergic disease as adults certainly deserve the time and effort necessary to improve and preserve the often overlooked impaired physical and mental function associated with IgE-mediated disease. Proper history, testing, and therapeutic intervention can go a long way in improving outcomes in these patients, and in nearly all cases patients will very much appreciate efforts made.
