In the news reports that I read frequently, I find that there are many things that can bring on allergies in both Children and Adults.  Recently, however this report caught my eye, as it stated, "Mice May Bring on Wheezing in Some Kids".
 
While they tell us that more research is needed re this, they suggest strongly that children especially in their 1st year of life are the most affected by this exposure!  It is recommended to try and keep young ones away from mouse exposure as much as possible in their early years!
