You may notice that your child has an allergic reaction when they eat eggs or things with eggs in them. Reactions can vary from mild to severe, including skin rashes, hives, nasal congestion, and vomiting or other digestive problems. Eggs are the most common allergy-causing foods for children and most egg allergy appears during early childhood. At our practice, most of the initial evaluations for egg allergy occur in young children. While an allergy to egg often resolves itself over time in children, there is a treatment program for those who have a persistent egg allergy.
Several years ago, Advanced Allergy & Asthma Care started an oral immunotherapy treatment program for those with peanut and tree nut allergy. The program has been very successful and we are now expanding of our food allergy treatment program to include those who are allergic to egg.
