How to recognize disease in their offspring in time? How to protect it from allergic attacks? The answers to the above and similar questions you’ll find after reading the article.
Variety the children’s hypersensitivity
As you know, intolerance is very different. Some react negatively to pollen, other animal dander.
Sometimes even intolerance to the sun or too humid/dry air. How to understand what allergies the child has, if it has already happened? To do this, let’s look at the varieties of intolerance.
More specifically, the reaction happens not in the very dust, and to dust micro-mites and the waste products of parasites of data.
As dust contains a variety of substances: pollen particles, mold spores and fungi, particles of wool and fluff and more. The response can be anything.
Cause its not the animal itself, and its saliva, fur, particles of hair and epidermis. Contain Pets animal allergies will not succeed, so as to determine at what reacts his body, hard.
Moreover, a cat or dog will not leave without saliva or skin, but if you are allergic to down and wool, we can find a way out. For example, to have Sphynx (cat) or a Chinese crested (dog).
Products in our diet can sometimes provoke negative reactions because of the substances which contain them in the composition.
Often a negative reaction occurs to the protein, especially in babies up to a year. Often reaction causes the cows milk and its derivatives. In addition, the threat allergies eggs, seafood, nuts — protein foods.
