Watery eyes, runny noses and inflamed sinuses got your family inside during the summer? Does your family go out to eat, on playdates or to birthday parties with an EpiPen at the ready? And is asthma management a major concern in your home? Dr. Thad Woodard of KSKA’s Line One, and pediatric asthma and allergy specialist at Alaska Center for Pediatrics, is our guest on our this show. He walks us through the basics – how allergies are diagnosed, what happens during testing, why allergies occur and how to manage allergies at home.
