A child who frequently develops a skin rash, gets nausea, stomachache, or cramping after eating certain fruits and vegetables, or who sneezes or coughs a lot may have an allergic tendency. Any child may have an allergy, but the tendency to get allergies is hereditary. Early detection of allergic reactions will improve the quality of the life of your child, minimize the number of missed school days and help you avoid going to the doctor again and again.
Continuously stuffy or running nose
Difficulty breathing (asthma)
Does it seem like your child always has a cold? He/she might be suffering from a cold allergy.
Does your child breathe through his/her mouth?
Skin rashes or hives (atopic dermatitis or eczema)
Are your child eyes itchy, red, or watery?
Is your child constantly wiggle, wipe, or push his/her nose up?
However, if you suspect your child is suffering from allergic reactions, consult your healthcare practitioner immediately. Before you consult the allergist, keep the record of signs and symptoms of allergy in a notebook.
