Question unclear: If you are asking what to do if the kid is allergic to what you prepaired, the answer is simple, don't let s/he eat it. Prepare something else. If the child ate it and developed hives, benedryl may help some. It is advisable to know specific dietary problems in any child you watch & have a rapid action plan for any unexpected reactions. Kids can develop pbms to foods they have tolerated in the past. ...Read more

Have allergies one day and none the next. Is that weird?

Have allergies one day and none the next. Is that weird?

No, it's not.: This is because allergen levels can change on a daily basis. This is especially true for outdoor allergens, largely pollens or mold spores that can rise or fall tremendously from one day to the next. Allergy testing could help identify your triggers, so you can consider seeing an allergist for testing. Once your triggers are known, you can look out for those "bad days.". ...Read more

Why is it that allergy pills don't work every time I take one?

Why is it that allergy pills don't work every time I take one?

Timing: Antihistamines work by blocking histamine receptors in your body. If the receptors are all full of histamine already (reaction has occurred), then there is nowhere for them to go and it will not make a difference in allergy symptoms. If you take them before exposure to allergens they can block the receptors and you will have less symptoms. ...Read more

What to do if I have a horrilbe allergy please someone which one is the best medicine?

No single one: Depending on the severity of your condition.
There is no one best drug for anyone but most people respond well to intranasal cortisone + a intranasal antihistamine. Dymista is currently the only rx drug with this combination.
Avoidance remains the best and consider allergy shots if your symptoms are not adequately controlled. However allergy shots are not medicine. ...Read more

Last cold I had was 2 years ago, but came down with one 10 days ago, still coughing a bit. Is it a cold or something else? Allergy?

Probably a cold: Sudden onset 10 days ago suggests a cold. Viral upper respiratory disease typically lasts10-20 days as your immune system needs time to adapt to a new virus. Recovery can occur in less than a week if you've been exposed to a similar pathogen before. Now, having inflammation related to allergies can make a bad thing worse when it comes to colds. ...Read more

My son is just over 15 months old and he battles with allergies every month. He gets sick like every third or fifth week. Can one do allergie test?

They are available: Both blood and skin tests for a variety of allergies are available. The ones for foods are more likely to be something you can control. If airborne allergies like dust are involved it is hard to control, but may help you. Allergy shots as given in some places in the world are not considered worthwhile in infancy.

What can I give my one year old for allergies?

What can I give my one year old for allergies?

Don't assume allergy: If I blow pepper in your face, you sneeze & drain the same as those with allergy. I find babies have more congestion with scented cleaning products, perfume, smoke & other irritants than they do with animal dander or pollens. The tiny nasal passages that become very noisy with a little mucous or swelling gives many the wrong idea. These are not little copies of adult problems, their issues differ ...Read more

It a pollutant allergy different one from the others?

It a pollutant allergy different one from the others?

Yes: Allergies are caused when you have a certain type of antibody to proteins you encounter, such as those found in pollen or pet dander. The particles of air pollution are typically much simpler chemically, and you do not develop antibodies. However, they can be chemically irritating to lungs, nasal passages, etc, and diesel particles in particular can enhance allergic reactions to other pollens. ...Read more

Having a family history of allergy, or a personal history of other allergic disorders, such as eczema or hayfever may increase your risk of developing a food allergy.

Can an allergy to titanium cause problems if one has filshie clips?

Titanium allergy: I suppose it is possible, there have been reports of people having problems with them, part of the problem is that allergy to titanium is not as prevalent as other allergies and people coming into contact with titanium is not as prevalent as well. Many dental implant materials, as well as prosthetic implant materials are made of titanium because of the low incidence of allergic reaction. ...Read more

What is a HEPA hood? It was suggested put one over my head for allergies, but I don't know what that is.

What is a HEPA hood? It was suggested put one over my head for allergies, but I don't know what that is.

I'll clarify: This is called the laminar flow unit which is often used when handling sterile products and is not practical for most people due to noise, airflow, etc. If you have dust mite allergy, reducing the indoor humidity to 35-50% will be far more effective than any HEPA. If you have a mold allergy, attack the source of water. HEPA is usually a poor investment since it rarely makes much of a difference ...Read more

Is one allergy shot containing multiple allergens as effective as many shots with one allergen per shot?

Is one allergy shot containing multiple allergens as effective as many shots with one allergen per shot?

Yes, but: Yes, but the most essential component to giving allergy shots is that the appropriate doses are given for each allergen. In other words it doesn't matter if you get a certain number of units of dog mixed with a certain number of units of cat, or if you get those doses in separate injections. Also allergists know which allergens can or cannot be combined. ...Read more

Goes away quickly? If so, then this is something known as oral allergy syndrome. Read up on this syndrome to see if this is your problem. If not, then you really should see your doctor or an allergist. ...Read more
