Allergies are Annoying

Allergies can cause itching, sneezing, and sometimes wheezing.  Allergies are best treated when you take your prescribed medication. Twelve-year-old Gabby really wants to take her medicine for her allergies but she can’t…at least not at school. Taking any medication at school requires a doctor’s note and if you don’t have a note or perhaps don’t even have a doctor, you itch, sneeze, and wheeze at school.

With a referral to Young & Healthy, Gabby was able to see a dermatologist promptly. During her dermatology visit, Gabby’s allergies were addressed and a mysterious cyst was discovered that needed attention.

Gabby now has a dermatologist who is monitoring her allergies and the cyst, has the necessary doctor’s note for taking allergy medicine at school and has applied for Medi-Cal insurance to cover all of this in the future. It all took just one phone call to Young & Healthy!

At Young and Healthy we have found a simple solution to a complex problem.
