Sniffles, sneezes and congestion to breathing, rashes, food allergies and problems with young immune systems are the domain of the Division of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology in the University of Mississippi School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics. Drug and vaccine allergies, reactions to insect stings, evaluation of children with recurrent fevers or infections, contact dermatitis and food-triggered gastro-intestinal disorders are also among issues studied by physicians in this division. Education and research into the causes of allergies, asthma and immune deficiencies in children and work to develop more effective treatments for these patients is the focus of this facet of pediatrics.
