How to treat allergies:

Allergies are a reaction by the body against a particular substance (allergen) like pollen, animal dander, mold or certain foods. Indications that your child may be suffering from an allergy may include:

  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy, red eyes
  • Dry coughing
  • Irritated skin
  • Stomach ache (Food allergy)
  • Vomiting (Food allergy)
  • Diarrhea (Food allergy)

These symptoms are often confused with the common cold or other conditions. It is important to see your pediatrician as soon as possible to ensure the correct diagnosis and treatment.

A guide to common allergies in infants

  • Egg, milk and soy allergies: These allergies are a reaction to a protein in these foods and are often outgrown in the first year or two. Your doctor will likely recommend a treatment plan that may include a change of diet and exclude a particular food, or change your infant’s formula.
  • Dust mites, animal dander and pollen: Sneezing, runny noses and itching eyes are common symptoms for these allergies that are uncomfortable for your infant. A doctor’s diagnosis and treatment may include child-friendly antihistamines or even allergy shots.
  • Dermatitis: This can be caused by anything from an ingredient in your laundry soap to a particular plant in your garden. Remove the plant or change to a hypoallergenic product recommended by the doctor. Avoid any products that may cause a similar effect. Use a doctor-recommend medication to sooth the itching skin.
