Battling Allergies In Children

Unknown, ParentcircleParentCircle

Any child can develop an allergy. It happens when their immune system overreacts to a substance that’s normally harmless. Common allergy triggers include pollen, dust, animals, insects, medications, and even food items, and otherwise normally harmless substances. “When your child eats, touches, or breathes in an allergen, their immune system releases histamines. That causes symptoms of an allergic reaction,” says an article in Healthline.

These symptoms of an allergic reaction can vary from person to person. It can be persistent cough, swollen eyes, red spots in skin, etc.., But regardless of what the symptoms are, all allergens can affect your child’s skin, respiratory tract, and other organs. In addition, these allergies can also adversely affect your child’s day to day life, as it gets in the way of your child’s ability to sleep well, play, and function in school.

There are a few simple home remedies and eating tips that can help you minimise your child’s allergies. "Tea, especially green tea, with or without caffeine, is very good for people with allergies," says an article in Everyday Health. “Tea contains natural antihistamines, which makes it a great addition to your diet to reduce allergy symptoms. Histamine is a chemical that your body releases during allergic reactions.”

Your child’s allergies can be more dreadful and difficult than you think. Read through this ClipBook to know more and take steps towards battling the allergies.
