An allergy is an altered immune response to a substance that is not actually harmful to the body, but is determined by the immune system as such. Allergic manifestations in children are quite common and are specified by many factors, such as peculiar hereditary properties of a child, nutrition, food supplements in the diet, chronic diseases.

In general, allergic reactions in children can have many different manifestations. The main problem in diagnosing the allergy is similarity of its symptoms with other respiratory and skin diseases. It is the task of a pediatric allergist to provide the accurate diagnosis, identify an allergen, prescribe the appropriate treatment to relieve the symptoms and take the necessary preventive measures to ease the course of allergies in the future.

The specifics of allergic diseases is that they are all chronic, because if once the body responses to a substance in the form of an allergic reaction, it means that every time coming in contact with this substance the body will response in the same allergic way.

The most common allergic diseases in children are:

  • bronchial asthma;
  • allergic rhinitis;
  • atopic dermatitis;
  • urticaria.

Symptoms that may indicate an allergic reaction in a child include prolonged respiratory illness, as well as dry and itchy skin.

The following factors can indicate that this is an allergy:

  • symptoms recur at certain times of the season;
  • symptoms occur in similar circumstances (same food, contact with detergents, animals, etc.);

Therefore, you should suspect an allergy and consult a doctor if the following symptoms periodically develop or are persistent in your child:

  • cough,
  • shortness of breath;
  • tearing and redness of the eyes;
  • itchy skin;
  • skin rash.
  • symptoms do not disappear within two weeks

Diagnosis

When diagnosing allergic diseases, it is important not only to confirm the symptoms of allergy, but also to identify the substance (allergen) to minimize the contact with it in the future.

Diagnosis of allergic diseases consists of

  • examination by a doctor and taking disease history from a patient and parents;
  • full blood count;
  • spirography with special tests to assess the function of external respiration (when respiratory manifestations occur);
  • special skin tests (patch tests) to identify the causes of contact dermatitis;
  • special blood analyses to identify the causative allergen

After all, often a change in lifestyle and diet helps to avoid the negative manifestations of allergies.
