Hello Tungga, thank you for asking.
Food and beverage allergies in children are quite common. This is because the child's immune system is still in development stage. Allergies may also occur in children if there is a family history of allergies. Generally, the first thing to consider when a child experiences allergic symptoms is to stop consuming products that contain eggs, milk, or nautical food, and their derivatives. But the causes of food allergies vary greatly between individuals. To find out the cause of allergies is the best way is to pay close attention to any food or drink that when consumed causes allergic symptoms.
If you already know about what ingredients cause allergies, then you can try a challenge test. This test by giving a little material that is suspected as a cause and watch for allergies. However, this must be done with extreme caution because severe allergic reactions can occur which can cause anaphylatic shock. It's safer if it's done by removing one ingredient, then note whether the symptoms of allergies improve. If there are other ingredients that are also suspected as allergens, do the same thing, until finally the exact cause is found.
Allergic reactions also vary in degree. There are allergic reactions that arise immediately after contact or ingestion of allergens. There are also allergies that take months or even years and repeated exposure to allergen ingredients, to cause allergic reactions. So there is still a possibility that your child has a milk allergy even though the milk consumed so far is still the same. This is because your child may have a slow type of allergic reaction to milk.
It should also be remembered that allergies are not only caused by food and drinks. Lots of household ingredients that might cause allergies. For example, detergents, deodorizers, soaps, shampoos, perfumes, even materials such as carpets. If you want to know the exact cause of an allergy you have, then you can do an allergy test.
Thus my explanation, hopefully helped. Regards.
