Coping and support

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Having a serious allergy or being the parent of a child with a potentially life-threatening allergy can be stressful. Talking to others that share your situation can be helpful. Besides offering support and encouragement, they also may provide useful coping tips, such as how to deal effectively with school officials so that your child's medical needs are met. Ask your doctor if there are any support groups in your area, or contact the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
