How To Deal With Allergies In Infants Aged 6 Months?
My baby is 6 months old and is still breast milk. My baby is learning to eat breast milk. My baby has a history of hives allergy, if I eat domestic chicken eggs. Can I take anti-histamine medication to relieve the allergies?
Good evening Tya Prabu, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Basically the most appropriate way to deal with allergies is to prevent the occurrence of allergies themselves. If indeed your child is allergic because you eat chicken eggs negri because there are several components in the egg that are also excreted through breast milk, then the most appropriate way is you avoid eating eggs for a while until your child finally does not consume breast milk again. If you want to give MPASI food to your child, also make sure that the MPASI food does not contain chicken eggs to prevent these allergies.
If you or your child accidentally consumes these eggs and there is biduran to your child, immediately consult your child to the doctor to get treatment as soon as possible to overcome the allergic reaction that arises. Do not give any antihistamine drugs to your child because not all antihistamine drugs can be given to children. Also note that some types of antihistamine drugs may also pass through breast milk, but it is not recommended to take advantage of this effect to provide antihistamine drugs for your child, because as previously stated, not all antihistamine drugs can be given to children -child.
For now, avoid giving food or drinks that have been shown to cause allergic symptoms in your child, and avoid giving any medication if allergic symptoms arise without any clear recommendation from a doctor. If symptoms of biduran occur with shortness of breath or loss of consciousness, immediately take your child to the hospital emergency room for first aid.
I hope this helps.
