ALLERGIES

Allergies can affect children in many different ways. Eczema, hives, itchy eyes, and sinus congestion are most common. West River Allergy offers “shot-less”allergy treatment. 

Sublingual (under the tongue)  allergy drops are easy to administer and safe for your little ones.

EAR INFORMATION

One of the most common medical issues with small children is recurrent ear infections. Recurrent ear infections and hearing loss related to fluid behind the eardrum can be treated with ear tubes. Ear infections can cause sleep loss, fevers, hearing loss, and irritability.

TONSILLITIS

Another very common pediatric medical issue is enlarged tonsils and adenoids. These can cause problems such as trouble sleeping and recurrent sore throats. Sleep apnea in children can often be improved with removal of the tonsils and adenoids. This may also help with sleeping issues such as bed wetting and snoring.Tonsils and adenoids can also cause recurrent tonsillitis and strep throat. Their removal can decrease how often your child gets sore throats as well as the severity.

Let us help your child. If tonsillectomy is indicated, removal of tonsils can improve the quality of life for your child.  You can see the results for yourself. Our patients have a 97% reduction in tonsil symptoms! Take the survey here.
