Common Allergies In Children

Posted by: | Comments (8)

Allergies In Children - What Are The Most Common?Today I wanted to take a look at some of the most common allergies in children, as well as allergy related conditions;  their symptoms and the culprits that are most likely to trigger them.

As I have said before, allergies are on the increase.  NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) say that there is a 500% rise in hospital admissions of children due to food allergies in the past 20 years (NICE).

Let’s take a look at some of the more common allergens for children. They are:

  1. Foods
  2. Pollens
  3. Dust
  4. Dust mites
  5. Animal dander (skin, saliva and urine on hair or fur)
  6. Feathers
  7. Cosmetics
  8. Moulds/molds
  9. Chemicals used for cleaning, air fresheners and chemicals on clothes and furniture
  10. Medicines (especially penicillin)
  11. Vaccines
  12. Venom from insect stings
