Recognizing Allergic Reactions

September 22, 2017

 

 

Allergic reactions can be triggered by any number of allergens, and can range from very mild (watery eyes) to severe (anaphylactic shock). Several of the symptoms can be comparable to those experienced from the common cold, so it is important to educate yourselves about any allergies your child is known to have, and to be wary of signs of a potential allergic reaction. These include:

  • Mild reaction symptoms

    • Hives (especially on the neck and face)

    • Itching

    • Congestion

    • Rashes

    • Watery eyes

  • Severe reaction symptoms

    • Abdominal pain

    • Abnormal breathing sounds

    • Chest discomfort/tightness

    • Cough

    • Diarrhea

    • Difficulty breathing/swallowing

    • Dizziness

    • Redness of face

    • Nausea/vomiting

    • Palpitations

    • Swelling of face/tongue/eyes

    • Unconsciousness

    • Wheezing

If your child shows any of the mild symptoms, we recommend calling either office and scheduling a visit. In the event your child experiences any of the severe symptoms, we recommend taking the child to an emergency room.


If you have any questions, please call either office or reach out to us through our website.
