The University of Chicago Medicine - Comer Children's Hospital

Allergy and Immunology

Physicians at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital specialize in diagnosing and treating a wide range of allergic and immune disorders in children and adults.

Conditions We Treat

Diagnosing Allergies, Asthma and Immune Disorders

Allergy Challenge

An accurate diagnosis is the first step in managing allergies, asthma and immune disorders. Our adult and pediatric specialists take a medical history and complete a thorough evaluation, which may include:

  • Allergen skin testing
  • Blood testing
  • Bronchial provocation testing
  • Immune function testing
  • Lung function testing

After completing a thorough diagnostic evaluation, our team works with each patient to create an individualized treatment plan.

Treatment and Follow Up Care

Following a comprehensive assessment, our team will create a care plan to help eliminate or reduce symptoms. If you or your child has hay fever or asthma, we may recommend medications such as antihistamines or steroids, environmental modification, allergen immunotherapy, and/or other therapies. For children and adults with food allergies, we will develop an avoidance and emergency plan to prevent reactions and to treat them when they occur. Comer Children's also streamlines care for children and adults with immune deficiencies by bringing together specialists in allergy and immunology, infectious disease, hematology and more.
