Can babies have allergies?
Regarding this, how do you know if your baby has allergies?
"Symptoms of child or infant food allergies may include skin rashes, hives, wheezing, nasal congestion, and digestive problems," Renner notes. As a child's immune system matures, some food allergies will go away on their own.
Secondly, can 3 month old have allergies? Newborns are prone to rashes, but most rashes (including infant acne) vanish by 2 or 3 months of age. This is the time allergic rashes tend to appear. The most common allergic rash is atopic dermatitis, or eczema, and for many babies it's the first warning sign of allergic tendencies.
Also, can a baby have seasonal allergies?
Seasonal allergies are usually caused by pollen from weeds, grasses, and trees. These types of allergies are actually very rare in babies, and they aren't typically seen until children are 2 or 3 years old at the earliest.
What can I give my infant for allergies?
Types of allergy medication for children
- Antihistamines (Allegra, Clarinex, Claritin, Zyrtec) are available over the counter or as a prescription.
- Nasal corticosteroids (Nasonex, Flonase) are available by prescription and in some cases over-the-counter to relieve nasal inflammation and itchy, runny noses.
