Why do some children have allergies?

Why do some children have allergies?

Exposure + Genes: One needs both a genetic component and "exposure" to a said allergen to develop an allergy. There is a growing support over the past 20 years, that growing up in an environment which is "too clean" can also lead to development of allergies down the road. Either way, allergies are on the rise. ...Read more

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read more

Can a parents allergies be passed on to their children?

Can a parents allergies be passed on to their children?

Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read more

I give my 17mnth old 1/2 teaspoon of children's zyrtec (cetirizine) for allergies but some days it's not enough. Can I increase the dose or try something differ t?

I give my 17mnth old 1/2 teaspoon of children's zyrtec (cetirizine) for allergies but some days it's not enough. Can I increase the dose or try something differ t?

Do not increase: A 17 month old should not have allergies to inhaled items like dust or pollen. Zyrtec (cetirizine) could cause drowsiness and I would avoid long term use of zyrtec (cetirizine) in your child. If your child has a runny or stuffy nose that is unresponsive to zyrtec (cetirizine) then see your doctor to make sure there isn't an infection brewing. ...Read more

Do children grow out of allergies?

Do children grow out of allergies?

Yes: Not all of the food allergies are created equal. Food allergies like dairy, egg, wheat tend to be outgrown. Tree nut and peanut are less likely (although recent studies suggest that 20-30% outgrow the peanut allergy). Environmental allergies tend to "grow on you" with time. Note: the allergy test may remain positive despite the child having outgrown the allergy. Consult with an allergist. ...Read more
