Children are easily prone to any type of allergy, majorly airborne and food allergies because their immunity is low compared to that of the adults. The symptoms of the allergy can be controlled but cannot be cured permanently. Allergies may acquire on circumstances like,

  • A child who sneezes or coughs a lot
  • Developing a rash or hives frequently
  • Stomachache
  • Cramps or nausea due to a certain food.

It is not advisable to smoke in front of kids as passive smoking will worsen the allergy of the child.

In order to reduce the allergy, it is advisable that parents/guardians change their clothes before going to their kids when they come home from outside.
