Allergy in your baby
- Skin rash, Hay fever, Eczema, Hives and Bowel problems


- 皮疹、花粉症、湿疹、荨麻疹和肠道问题




What is allergy?

Allergies are sensitive reactions that occur when the body’s immune system reacts in any unusual way to foods, airborne dust, animal hair and pollen.

This results in conditions such as hay fever, eczema, hives and bowel problems. The condition is also called atopy.


  • 嘴唇发痒、肿胀
  • 瘙痒、紧绷感、喘鸣(由气流中断引起的高音、喘息声)、声音嘶哑
  • 瘙痒、荨麻疹、发红和肿胀
  • 呼吸急促、咳嗽、喘息
  • 头晕,脉微弱,面色苍白,湿冷,失去知觉

立即就医。拨打 995 呼叫紧急救护车。确保患者躺在安全的位置,保持呼吸道通畅并保持呼吸。

Recognising symptoms of Anaphylaxis (Severe Allergic Reaction)

  • Itching, swelling of lips
  • Itching, tightness, stridor (high-pitched, wheezing sound caused by disrupted airflow), hoarseness
  • Itching, hives, redness and swelling
  • Rapid breathing, cough, wheeze
  • Giddiness, weak pulse, pale, clammy, loss of consciousness

Food Allergy Symptoms & Treatment @ MDIMC






  1. 消化系统(包括胃和肠):恶心、呕吐和吐出食物、小婴儿的绞痛行为(包括拉离乳房)、胃痛、腹泻、食欲不振、体重增加缓慢。
  2. 呼吸系统(包括鼻子、喉咙和肺):流鼻涕、打喷嚏、喘息、哮喘、反复发作的支气管炎或哮吼持续咳嗽。
  3. 皮肤:湿疹、荨麻疹、其他皮疹。

Allergies are common in babies and children. They usually disappear as the child grows older, but sometimes can continue into adult life.

Unlike most of the common illnesses (such as measles and chickenpox), an allergy can have many symptoms, and these vary widely from child to child.

Allergies are not infectious.

How to tell if a baby has an allergy?

An allergic reaction might take hours or even days to develop and can affect almost any part of the body. Symptoms may be any of the following:

1.      Digestive system (includes stomach and intestines): nausea, vomiting and spitting up of food, colicky behaviour in the young baby (including pulling away from the breast), stomach pain, diarrhoea, poor appetite, slow weight gain.

2.     Respiratory system (includes nose, throat and lungs): runny nose, sneezing, wheezing, asthma, recurring attacks of bronchitis or croup persistent cough.

3.      Skin: eczema, hives, other rashes.



  • 通常引起过敏反应的食物包括牛奶和其他乳制品、鸡蛋、花生酱,有时还有橙子、大豆、巧克力、西红柿、鱼和小麦。
  • 与过敏反应有关的空气传播颗粒包括尘螨、花粉、动物毛发和霉菌。



What are the Causes of Allergies?

Common causes of allergic reaction are foods and airborne irritants. Soaps and detergents might aggravate some skin conditions.

·       Foods that commonly cause allergic reactions include milk and other dairy products, eggs, peanut butter, sometimes oranges, soya beans, chocolate, tomatoes, fish and wheat.

·       Airborne particles linked with allergic reactions include dust mites, pollen, animal hair and moulds.

Some reactions are caused by food additives such as colourings, flavourings and preservatives. Additives are found in many prepared foods (e.g. lollies, sauces, ice cream, cordial, soft drinks, biscuits, savoury snacks and  processed meats).

The allergic reaction to dairy products has almost the same symptoms (stomach pain and diarrhoea) as those that occur when a baby has lactose intolerance, which is when he or she cannot digest the sugar (lactose) in dairy products. The correct diagnosis is a matter for your doctor.

前 6 个月对易过敏婴儿进行母乳喂养可能会减少婴儿期的湿疹和其他过敏性疾病。如果无法进行母乳喂养,请谨慎选择母乳替代品(配方奶)。从您的医生或婴儿福利护士那里获得建议。


如果可能,在婴儿 5 或 6 个月大之前不要开始吃固体食物。一次开始一种食物,少量。如果没有反应,第二天可以增加数量。

应至少相隔几天引入新食物。开始食用最常引起过敏反应的食物(乳制品、鸡蛋、柑橘类水果和花生酱)时,应特别小心。在最初的 6-9 个月内应避免使用它们。



Is allergy inherited?

Allergy cannot be passed from generation to generation, but children from families that have a tendency to allergy have a greater chance of becoming allergic. However, anyone can become allergic.

What is the Management for Allergy?


Breastfeeding of allergy-prone babies for the first 6 months might diminish eczema and other allergic disorders during infancy. If breastfeeding is not possible, choose a breast milk substitute (formula) carefully. Get advice from your doctor or infant welfare nurse.

What happens when solids are introduced?

If possible, do not start solids until the baby is 5 or 6 months old. Start one food at a time, in small amounts. The quantity can be increased the next day if no reaction occurs.

New foods should be introduced at least several days apart. Particular care should be taken when starting foods that most commonly cause allergic reactions (dairy products, eggs, citrus fruits and peanut butter). They should be avoided during the first 6 – 9 months.

Be alert!

If possible, prepare the baby’s food using fresh ingredients. For example, a child with cow's milk in any form. Read labels carefully to check ingredients in products.

Other allergies

Many babies and children develop allergies to house dust and animal hair.

Vacuuming regularly and keeping pets outside will reduce the problem.

Bedding should be aired regularly. Damp and poorly ventilated homes are subject to mould, which can be eliminated.


  • 棉质衣服最适合有皮肤问题的婴儿和儿童。
  • 避免使用强力肥皂、清洁剂和尿布清洗液。
  • 煮沸婴儿的奶瓶,而不是使用化学溶液。
  • 谨慎使用强效灭蝇喷雾、香水和消毒剂等家用化学品,然后彻底通风。
  • 当您的宝宝在房间内时,请勿吸烟或让他人吸烟。

Other things that can be done:

  • Cotton clothing is best for babies and children with skin problems.
  • Avoid strong soaps, detergents and nappy wash solutions.
  • Boil the baby’s bottles rather than use chemical solutions.
  • Use household chemicals such as strong fly sprays, perfumes and disinfectants sparingly, and air the house thoroughly afterwards.
  • Do not smoke or allow others to smoke when your baby is in the room.
