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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Allergy tests: There are several types of testing. Some involve certain types of blood tests. Another method is to do a series of skin tests done by pricking the skin and applying different allergens. Other tests are provocative tests that can involve challanging the patient with allergic materials. Testing should be done by doctors specializing in allergy to obtain the best results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No allergy free dog: There really are no dogs that do not produce allergen. It is a protein that is found in hair and skin scales of all dogs.

Is there any treatment for nuts and sesame allergy in children ? Is giving small doses of them in a hospital setting actually helps ?
Variable: The successful rates for sublingual food drops desensitization to nuts have been variable. Most of the studies excluded those who had an anaphylactic reaction to the nut. Even if the desensitization is successful, it is intended only for inadvertent exposure to the nuts. This approach has not yet been fda approved and not yet ready for prime time. ...Read more
My ten year old has seasonal allergies for the first time. I gave her 24 hr Claritin (loratadine) at 7:30 am. It's 9pm. Can I give her children's diphenhydramine?

You might consider some of the newly made OTC nasal sprays with a low dose steroid (Nasocort,Rhinocort,etc.)I find many young women don't like the sprays, but if they will give them a week or two the allergies get better and they can sometimes drop the pills. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends: It really depends on the age of the child, and whether you're talking about food or environmental allergies. I generally will skin test children over age 2 for environmental allergies, while many younger kids need food testing. In terms of frequency, children with environmental allergies may benefit from repeat testing after 2 years, as their allergies can change as they get older. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hygiene hypothesis: The immune system has two opposing arms, one makes protective antibodies against bacteria and viruses, the other makes allergic antibody. One theory is that early antibiotic use disrupts the gut flora which tips the scale away from fighting infection and more toward making allergic antibodies. Clean environments might be at fault as well, farm kids don't get allergies as much as city kids. ...Read more
