Children who are unafraid of their condition and understand the treatment process are much more likely to take an active role in their own healthcare as they grow. What follows are common allergens that may help children understand what may be bugging them – and how the kind and caring professionals at Oak Brook Allergists can help your child eat, breathe, and live a happier, healthier life.
A dust mite is very small bug that you cannot see. Even though your room may look clean, he can hide under your bed and make you itchy, sneezy and stuffy.

Ragweed is a tall weed that grows wild almost everywhere in the U.S. in the summer. You may run across it in parks and along walking and biking paths. It makes pollen that can make your nose run and your eyes itch.

Cat dander is very small pieces of your kitty’s skin that float in the air; landing on you and in your house. If you’re allergic to it, you can get itchy, have trouble breathing, and not feel so well.

Trees release something in the air that we call pollen in the spring. If you’re allergic to tree pollen, it can make you feel like you always have a cold.
An allergy to peanuts is common – and can be scary. Your skin may become itchy and swollen after you eat something containing even a little bit of peanut in it. You may even have an allergic reaction just from inhaling dust that contains peanut particles, like peanut flour.
