Kids Allergy Care

While allergies can appear at any age, many develop in early childhood. Children should be monitored closely from birth, especially if there is a family history of atopy (asthma, eczema and/or hayfever). There is a genetic link to some types of allergies.

Allergy symptoms in Children include:

· Skin rashes or hives (atopic dermatitis or eczema)

· Difficulty breathing (asthma)

· Sneezing, coughing, a runny nose or itchy eyes

· Stomach upset

Common Allergy triggers in children include:

Outdoors: pollen, insect bites or stings, “prickly” plants

Indoors: pet or animal hair or fur, dust mites, mould

Irritants: cigarette smoke, perfume, strong scents, car exhaust

Food: peanuts, eggs, milk and milk products

If you think your child might have a serious allergy you should arrange to see your GP for testing. Another great way to ‘rule’ things out is to keep a diary tracking your child’s activities, including food, and drink as a way to detect the cause of their symptom/s.

A common childhood allergy is hay fever, and like most adults, children are most susceptible during spring. Where possible, its best to keep your child away from the allergens that cause distressing and uncomfortable symptoms.

A great way to look out for and be prepared for hay fever allergies is to check the pollen count for your nearest city here:  http://www.weatherzone.com.au/pollen-index/
