Common Allergens



Common allergens

  • Food
  • Dust mites
  • Pollens
  • Animal dander


Understanding food allergens

Some of the major food allergens in children include:

  • Cow’s Milk Protein
  • Soy Protein

While in older children, they include:

  • Egg
  • Peanuts
  • Shellfish

Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy

Did you know that it’s actually not recommended for children to consume cow’s milk? That’s because cow’s milk contains approximately 30 potentially allergenic proteins that majority of children are sensitive to. As a result, the consumption of cow’s milk might result in them developing other forms of allergies, including asthma.

Allergy March is a progression of allergies that affects children as they grow older.

It often begins with food allergies and atopic eczema, before progressing to asthma and allergic rhinitis.
