"Treatment for food allergies:"

 

 

smurf  There is no medication to prevent food allergy.
The goal of treatment is to avoid the foods that cause
the symptoms. After seeing your child's physician and
finding which foods your child is allergic to, it is
very important to avoid these foods and other
similar foods in that food group. smurf If you are
breastfeeding your child, it is important to
avoid foods in your diet that your child is allergic
to. smurf Small amounts of the food allergen may be
transmitted to your child through your breast milk
and cause a reaction."

Wishing you and your children a Happy, Healthy Day!!

  smurf Allergies To Peanuts? smurf

"Check food labels carefully for the presence of peanuts or peanut oil. Another name for peanut oil is arachis oil. If you have questions about products, contact their manufacturers.

Watch out for Chinese, smurf Thai, African, Indonesian, Mexican, and Vietnamese dishes. These often include peanuts or peanut oil. And even those without peanuts or peanut oil may have been contaminated with them during preparation.

Consider avoiding sunflower seeds. yeah Many companies use the same equipment to produce both sunflower seeds and peanuts. smurf If your child has a reaction, get emergency care for her right away."

Our children are so precious and with those unknowing little hands they come into contact with so many things that may cause them allergic reactions that can become severe enough to be life threatening!
 
Make sure that when they attend other friend's parties, or sleep-over's that their parent's are aware of your child's allergies and what medications they are on, plus phone numbers for them to contact you if needed!  I had an incident happen at my home with a little girl and a possible allergy, that fortunately, turned out fine!, but I was able to contact her parent's and the whole situation was resolved very quickly.  She had just begun a new medication and was allergic to it...
 
When they attend school, the school nurse should be aware of these allergies as well, and if they have a food allergy, sometimes packing their lunches may help.
 
Wishing you and your child a wonderful, healthy, safe day!!
