Why choosing the right doctor is essential to your child's health
Name: Dr. Riham Ammar, AL DAS Medical Clinic
Why do parents need to know you?
I treat children with allergy problems, which may be new or recurrent. The kids I see usually have an allergy related to certain allergens such as dust, pollen and pets, and more often than not, they have a family history of allergy. Allergy attacks in children are usually seasonal, or occur only when exposed to the allergens.
What are the most common conditions you see?
The most common conditions related to children’s allergies that I often see in this part of the world are Bronchial Asthma - whether virus induced or due to allergies, followed by Allergic Rhinitis, with childhood eczema also being quite prevalent.
What symptoms do kids most commonly present when they come to see you?
Kids who are suffering from Allergic Rhinitis usually come to me with a chronic cold, with a watery transparent running nose which will eventually become blocked, resulting in snoring, mouth breathing and unpleasant breath in the morning.
