WHeat, egg, milk..: The most common food allergens in children are wheat, egg, milk, peanut and soy. Food allergies commonly cause eczema, hives, anaphylaxis. Foods are unusual triggers of asthma, although that can occur. Children with food allergies tend to have more severe asthma, but that doesn't mean the food allergies cause the asthma, more a reflection of their allergic tendencies.
