Allergic Reactions to Foods are Milder in Infants, Study Finds

Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

Symptoms of food-induced anaphylaxis in infants are much less severe than in toddlers and older children, according to a study from Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Anaphylaxis is defined as a reaction that involves multiple systems in the body or a presentation with significant cardiac or respiratory symptoms. While in older children an allergic reaction to food can be life-threatening, anaphylaxis in infants mostly manifests as hives and vomiting, the study found. With over 350 cases analyzed, including 47 infants, this is the largest study to date to describe food-induced anaphylaxis in infants under 1 year of age compared to other age groups.

Children with Existing Allergies Should Be Screened for an Emerging, Severe Chronic Food Allergy

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Children with known skin, food and respiratory allergies should be screened for an emerging food allergy called eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), a painful inflammation of the esophagus. Pediatric allergists who analyzed a very large group of children say that EoE is a later component of the “allergic march”-- in which many children successively develop a series of allergies.
