Most often, according to doctors, Allergy in children are caused by unsuitable food that your digestive system of the baby is simply not ready.
There is still another way: the amount of product is so great that it is this enzyme is not enough.
Allergic dermatitis may have completely different symptoms. It can affect the overall condition. Looks like a ailment on the skin:

In the photo below you can clearly consider the main symptoms of dermatitis in children. You can see that the localization of the rash usually appears on the cheeks, creases of the knees and elbows, and stomach.
Dermatitis can cover large areas and can be only in one place, which then becomes inflamed to redness, the flash dies down and the place just flakes.
As such, the treatment of allergies in children is missing, because the most important thing to create certain conditions for the normal functioning of the intestine.
Dr. Komarovsky identifies the following principles of conduct mom, if her children had an allergic dermatitis.
Relatively sweet, it is necessary to say separately about cases like dermatitis began to pass, and if you give the child, for example, cough syrup – cheeks blushed again, although by itself, the sugar can not cause allergies.
And the point here is this: sugar creates the perfect environment for the distribution and reproduction of putrefactive bacteria remaining undigested.
Of drugs to help the body of the baby to cope with such reaction may be appointed enterosgel – he absorbs malicious environment, antihistamines – good at relieving the itch and healing ointment.
Traditional medicine distinguishes flax seed inside and local treatment with various decoctions of herbs.
If you decide to treat dermatitis folk remedies, they also must approve your pediatrician, because of the plant except the possession of useful properties, can also cause an outbreak of allergies.
Important rules in the treatment
We will highlight several factors influencing the disease, observing that the dermatitis will be faster.
Antiallergic therapy, unfortunately, has no magic pill make it all go away once and for all.

Another important point, which we could not avoid: the lack of calcium excess of vitamin D. Very often the lack of this vitamin in children can cause allergies.
By the way, if you remember how we treated already adult to date people, so it is calcium gluconate.
It is fashionable to assume that it is not absorbed by the body because no perfect composition. We hasten to reassure: it’s digested, it can be given the child, mixed with any dairy product.
To conclude, it is noteworthy that allergic dermatitis can be cured without resorting to medications. Enough to handle of a kid’s menu and moderate diet.
Creating the right living conditions and hygiene, the disease will soon begin to recede. Relapse can be avoided by observing the same rules of food, drink and outdoor activities.
You also need the child’s temper, spraying his legs with cool water after a shower. It should be remembered that any rash first still it is necessary to consult a doctor to rule out more complex hereditary or infectious diseases.
And after that you can proceed directly to therapy. Any applicable medicines only facilitate the state, and the freedom from disease lies inside the metabolic processes of the digestive system. We wish health to your children!
