Risks of eggs

Some foods are known to be among the more common causes of allergic reactions for babies and children. Like: Dairy, soy, peanuts, fish…ext.

Pediatricians used to recommend waiting to give babies eggs, until after they are 1 year. That’s because up to 2% of babies are allergic to them.

The yellow part of the egg does not contain proteins associated with allergic reaction. The whites, on the other hand, dose.

If your baby is allergic to these proteins, he may experience a range of symptoms.

Babies exposed to eggs after they were 1 year old were actually more likely to develop an allergy than those between the ages of 4 to 6 months.

Some babies’ immune systems is not fully developed and may not be able to handle certain proteins in the egg white. As a result, if they are exposed to it, they might experience an allergic reaction (they may feel sick, get a rash…)

Allergic reactions can affect the skin or the digestive, respiratory, or cardiovascular systems. Symptoms may include:

  • hives, swelling, eczema, or flushing
  • diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, or pain
  • itching around the mouth
  • rapid heartbeat, low blood pressure, and heart issues

The severity of symptoms may depend on your child’s immune system and the number of eggs consumed.

To have allergies is often hereditary. If someone in your family is allergic to eggs, you may want to use caution when giving eggs to your baby.

If your baby has severe eczema, you may also exercise caution giving eggs, as there is a link between this skin condition and food allergies.

If your child is allergic to eggs, don’t worry, they may outgrow it  later in life. As Many kids outgrow allergies by age of five.
