Indiana Public MediaKat Carlton has recently reported that there are allergists who believe that early exposure to common allergens can help build children’s immunity later in life. The article also cited the work of Dr. Mark Holbreich, a Physician from Indianapolis.

This article was published on Indiana Public Media:

Doctors are urging parents to expose their kids to more potential allergens such as dust mites and cat hair as a way to build up their immunity to allergies later in life.

Dr. Emma McCormack, an allergist with Allergy and Asthma of Southern Indiana in Bloomington, says that was the talk of the 70th annual Allergy Convention  in Baltimore this past weekend.

“It’s disseminating into all the literature that early exposure is actually going to be more helpful to delay the onset of allergies. So the sooner the better,” she says.
