Common Questions and Answers about Allergies kids


Avatar m tn Does anyone know how they test a six year old for allergies. My kids is constantly suffering from what I thought was colds but now I want to see if it is Allergies/Bronchitus/Asthma?
Avatar n tn t gained any weight in a year! Next week he is being tested for environmental allergies. Thanks for any info.
Avatar f tn I think allergies are for the most part genetic. I was born right on time and have hayfever like my mum, my cousin was overdue and has loads of allergies, her mum (my auntie) is allergic to far my kids have not shown any signs of allergies (7 & 5) but they have both been brought up with cats and dogs and we live in the countryside so I think that helps desensitise.
Avatar n tn He says he hates school because the kids are so mean to him. They call him names like loser, stupid and so on. I now kids will be kids, but can this be why he is having these ADHD syptoms too. I tried taking him off cold turkey for two days and he just flipped out. he was in the Principals office those two days, and she threatened me that if I don't put him back on the meds that she will have to suspend him. I could not beleive it. He is not a violent child.
Avatar n tn Most definately food allergies can come and go. It is very common actually for example for children with lactose intolerance allergies to actually get better ;and also vice versa for kids who weren't and then when they get into adulthood they become allergic to it. If you eat too much of one thing all the time your body can become intolerant of it and can cause an allergy. And finally yes, it is very possible to have a food allergy and not realize it until you have a reaction.
2075937 tn?1334884194 Its actually good for kids to be around animals, housemites and dirt there is research to suggest that it helps prevent allergies, and that the increase in allergies these days is because our houses are too clean so kids are not building a resistance...
15695260 tn?1549593113 Doctors report that there is a September Spike in asthma and allergies as kids go back to school. This is partly due to the Fall increase in allergies but also, kids are exposed to allergens in the classroom, playing fields, playgrounds and cafeteria that they weren't exposed to all summer. If your child is prone to asthma and allergies, doctors recommend you visit them in August to come up with a proactive plan of action to help.
172826 tn?1423422956 Could be the eggs but could also be a virus of some kind as well as it seems like there is TONS of stuff going around. Everyone I know has sick kids. UGH... Maybe you should take him in so they can see if is having an allergic reaction or if it's something else. I know with rashes they have a hard time diagnosing but they should be able to rule out allergic reaction. Just an idea.
Avatar n tn we have had no sleep in three months.. the drs say it is nothing -- allergies, or a sinus infection, and put us on zurteck and a z-pac.. but it has done nothing.. she has a severe history of upper respitory infections .. from 2 on, 2-3 almost died.. from it..we are at a loss! .. HELP!!!!!!
173939 tn?1333217850 I get very nervous when I have a child with allergies. When we went to the commons area to eat, i watched as kids with sticky hands touched the garbage can, door knobs, sinks, etc... The oils from nuts can cause an airborne reaction. However, I suspect that the school would allow baked goods such as pancakes that have eggs in it. Otherwise, how could you even send bread?? Chances are, they don't want you sending hard boiled eggs or anything like that.
Avatar f tn My husband is in the military, and we might have to request to move back to the southwest so the Allergies I have will hopefully minimize. My fear now is this is permanent no matter where I go. I just feel I need to get out of South Carolina. It feels like no one understands what I am going through, and it has caused me to have anxiety. My husband is frustrated, because when I have the anaphylactic shocks, or severe allergy attacks I can't seem to function.
Avatar f tn Most people have allergies as kids, then grow out of them, however for me, it seems to be the opposite. I had little to no allergies that I recall and now.... EVERYTHING, or at least it seems. They keep getting worse and worse every year and I don't know what is next! Mostly, my eyelids will become very swollen, usually in the morning after sleeping. I'm thinking this is cosmetics related, but I'm not sure...I will also get really red and itchy eyes as well....
Avatar f tn She does have some food allergies and controlled asthma. She did fall down the stairs around the time of the first headache - I called 911 and an ambulance came and EMTs checked her out and said she was fine. Could it be related to that fall? Could it be a tumor? Could it be an ice pick headache? Please help.
Avatar f tn Hello, People of any age can and do get Fibromyalgia, although it is not commonly diagnosed in teens or children. One of the reasons for this, I believe, is that doctors don't want to label kids with a dis order when they appear normal on the outside.I believe I've had it my whole life. The same symptoms I had as a kid I have now... and a few more. Many of my symptoms have gotten worse but were present as a kid.
Avatar n tn A thought that comes to mind, is allergies. Is he allergic to any foods that you know of? Has he been tested for allergies or is he on allergy medication? Allergies can cause irritability in children and aggression. With him throwing up after eating makes me suspect allergies along with the behavior. He could have a gluten allergy or a milk allergy. You may want to get him tested or watch for any sign of rash after eating.
184342 tn?1282588750 I took Colten to a pediatric allergist today, he seems to be suffering from allergies - DH has bad allergies, and as a child needed shots- but Colten is 17 months old, and weighs 25 lbs... she gave me a sample of nasonex to give to him, saying it had been approved for kids 2 and up, but that Colten was a good sized 17 month old, and he'd probably do fine with it- so she wanted to start with that, and then maybe do some blood testing in 3 months if he didn't seem to be doing better...
Avatar m tn Hi. Most dog allergies are from food. I would certainly concentrate on that first, before looking at other possibilities. Whatever you have been feeding for the last year may be significant. If it's a canned food, check the ingredients, make a list of them and start finding alternative pet foods (without one or more of the ingredients you've listed).
Avatar f tn Peanut allergies are also on the rise in the little ones. Some kids do outgrow certain allergies, but this really does vary from individual to individual. For now, keep peanut products away from him and read labels and watch for warnings. There are labels warning of products that are not peanut products that say that they are made on the same equipment as where peanuts were processed. Be on the alert for this, depending on how severe his allergy is.
172826 tn?1423422956 Is not hard to ban a fue items from school yes it may not seem fair and it may frustating to some parents who kids love certain foods but in the end every one is intitled to be safe. Why do you think kids get imunised not ALL kids get sick but some things are just not worth the risk. In australia kids are not allowed to eat carrots at school for the main reason that carrots are a chocking hazzard. It's a occupational health and safty risk to let children eat carrot's.
4715985 tn?1371582997 I never eat peanut butter and my four kids don't have any allergies. Old wives tale...
Avatar f tn I went to er today and they prescribed me clairatin for allergies I've had them so bad they have caused me swelling in my ears nose and throat anyway... I also take benadryl at night for allergies or to help me sleep.
Avatar m tn One of my kids has wicked allergies. I have Fall allergies which they normally call hay fever as does he but he also has a flare of spring allergies. Our allergist said this is from blooming plants, leaves budding out on trees, etc. They are emitting things that they do so less during the warmer summer months. Do you use anything like claritan? My son uses that and a saline nasal wash. It helps.
