Some kids are born with allergies due to their family genetics or environmental conditions. No parent wants to see their child suffer. Any child can develop allergies, but they are more common in children from families with a history of allergies. That’s why parents should monitor their child for symptoms.

Early identification of childhood allergies will improve your child’s quality of life, reduce the number of missed school days and help you avoid having to use sick time or vacation days to care for your child. 

Allergy Symptoms 

  • Skin rashes such as eczema or hives 
  • Sneezing, coughing, a runny nose or itchy eyes
  • Stomach upset
  • Difficulty in breathing

Common Allergy Triggers in Children

  • Outdoors: tree pollen, plant pollen, insect bites or stings
  • Indoors: pet or animal hair or fur, dust mites, mold
  • Irritants: cigarette smoke, perfume, car exhaust
  • Foods: peanuts, eggs, dairy products such as milk or cheese

As a parent, you can do few things to ease the allergic symptoms. For example if your baby has an allergy for dust mites, you can remove the carpet in his bedroom and also you can use Bamboo Beddings for your baby. 

Bamboo bed sheets minimise allergies by reducing the amount of moisture in your bed. Dust mites love to make their homes in synthetic and down materials. They retain moisture and provide a better living habitat, making the dry environment of Bamboo uninhabitable. 

Allergy sufferers often experience restless sleep due to the irritating symptoms caused by dust mites, but by investing in bamboo bedding products, these triggers are minimised and sufferers can enjoy the full night of deep, undisturbed sleep they deserve.

If you see any of these symptoms make an appointment with a doctor or an allergy specialist. Although, before you go to the doctor it may be better to have a diary for at least 48 hours to see what kind of things triggers your child's symptoms.
