Does Cow’s Milk Allergy Can Potentially Also Be Allergic To Cold Air?
good night, I want to ask, my child is allergic to cow’s milk and the reaction that arises is respiratory distress. what I want to ask is, is it permissible or can my child, I take a walk on a rock with 100% humidity, with a temperature of 21 ° C, different from the temperature of the air in where I live, which is 27 ° C. If not recommended. Please give an explanation. Thank you 🙏
Thank you for the question.
Cow's milk allergy occurs because of an error in the immune system that considers components in cow's milk as foreign objects, when in fact it is not. This condition can have a variety of clinical symptoms, not only in the form of digestive disorders (such as bloating, nausea, vomiting, colic, diarrhea, or constipation), but can also be a respiratory disorder (such as coughing, runny nose, wheezing, phlegm, throat) or other organ system disorders .
Children with cow's milk allergy have greater potential and are allergic to other substances, including cold allergies. Although this is not a necessity, considering that allergies are conditions that are very individual, but you should be more vigilant. Worried, taking your child to an area where the temperature is cold will also trigger an allergic reaction.
Therefore, if possible, you should wait to travel to these cold areas until your child's age is older (more than 1-2 years). But even if it's not, it's safer for you to:
First check your child to the doctor or pediatrician to evaluate his health before leaving. Only take it away if the doctor says it's safe.
Bring supplies of medicine that really needs to be brought, according to doctor's orders
Prepare thick and warm clothes (including blankets and jackets)
Bring baby's special heating oil, which is non-irritating and hypoallergenic
Bring enough food and drink supplies. If the child is allergic to cow's milk, then don't give him cow's milk. Give him ASI if he is still less than 1 year.
Make sure you choose a vehicle for traveling and a comfortable place to stay
In case of providing contact to the nearest health facility that can be addressed if something unexpected happens
Hope this helps ...
