How To Find Out If A Child Is Allergic To Food?
How do you know if your child is allergic to eggs? Thank you..
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Allergies occur due to the body experiencing excessive sensitivity in responding to the entry of a substance into the body that is considered dangerous, when it actually arrives. When experiencing allergies, the body will release various chemical mediators that play a role in causing various complaints, including reddish skin rashes, itching, rashes, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, dizziness, swelling of the body, to shock ( shock). This condition can be mild but it can also be part of a medical emergency that needs to be treated IMMEDIATELY.
Until now, there is no specific treatment that can be done to cure allergies. Therefore, the only important way to do this is to prevent the patient from being exposed to allergens. This is possible if you know what triggers your child's allergy.
Clinically, you can observe the symptoms of egg allergy in children by observing the changes experienced by children after consuming eggs. If after consuming eggs or other processed products your child experiences signs of an allergy as mentioned above, then it is likely that your child has an egg allergy. You can stop eating eggs in your child first to confirm whether there are any possible allergic symptoms to appear due to other foods that are given along with eggs.
In addition, in the medical realm, allergy detection can be done in several ways. One of them is the pin prick test, patch test, laboratory test, and so on. For that, if you find it difficult to monitor possible triggers for your child's allergy, don't hesitate to consult directly with a pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
