What are the symptoms of allergies in children?

Allergies affect the immune system, which is why allergic reactions are so common. When your immune system mistakes a substance like pollen or dust for a harmful invader, it creates antibodies to attack the substance.

But if there are similar allergens in an environment such as a school, a child with allergies may experience:

  • Itchy eyes 
  • Sneezing 
  • Coughing
  •  Weight loss 
  • Asthma symptoms
  • Skin rash 
  • Hives 
  • Anxiety
  • Diarrhea 
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Concentration problems.

There are a few things you can do to find out if your child has allergies. First, check your child’s diet and environment, you might want to start by making sure your child’s diet includes a variety of fruits and vegetables, particularly those with a strong scent, such as broccoli, cauliflower, black beans, and mango. Other allergy-friendly food options include eggs, fish, chicken, brown rice, and peanut butter.

Next, try to determine where your child spends most of his time. For example, if your child is allergic to dust in his bedroom, you might want to try moving him to a different room.

The role of diet and environment in managing allergies

When you know your child has allergies, you can try to manage them by avoiding certain foods and environments.

  •  Avoid Highly Allergenic Foods: Avoiding certain foods can help reduce your child’s allergic reactions. For example, if your child is allergic to tree pollen, he should avoid tree and shrub fruit such as kiwi, mango, gua, VA and apricot. If he’s allergic to grass pollen, he should also avoid grass and tree pollen-producing plants such as oak, soybeans, and wheat.
  • Avoid Allergens in the Air: Try to avoid exposing your child to allergens in the air. One way to do this is by using an air filter to create a barrier between your child and the allergens in the air.
  • Keep Allergens Out of Your Home: If your child is allergic to dust, try to keep the dust in your home as low as possible. You may also want to consider having your carpets and furniture cleaned professionally.

Keep track of your child’s symptoms. If your child experiences a rash, itchy eye,s or other signs of an allergic reaction, take note of what your child ate and where he was before the reaction occurred. This information can help you narrow down the possible causes of your child’s symptoms.
