Abstract

Respiratory allergies constitute one of the major allergic disorders affecting children at global level. In the Renuka Diagnostics Laboratory, serum samples of 280 children (aged between 05-11) were tested for Inhalation allergy (IgE) on commonly occurring airborne allergies.  The study has confirmed house dust mites and dermatrophs as the major cause of respiratory allergies among children. Strict avoidance of allergens is the only well-established management strategy for the disorder. 

Key Words: Asthma, Rhinitis, Inhalation, Anaphylaxis, Immunological reaction, allergic reactions.
