Whether it's food allergies or seasonal allergies, children with allergies can encounter triggers at home, at school and everywhere in between. Seasonal allergies in children have the same symptoms as adults, with sneezing, itchy eyes, sore throat and a cough that may be worse at the night. Food allergies can be more serious, as a child can have ananaphylactic reaction if exposed to a trigger. Being prepared and making sure your child is aware of their allergy triggers is an important step to keeping them safe.
