For children

What you need to know aboul children allergy

Frequency of allergy diseases is growing every year. Most adults face allergic-contact reactions to allergens ‘flying in the air’ (dust, flower dust, fungi, animal hairs etc.) meanwhile children have allergic responses to different products.

Fact 1. Food allergy more often happens to children under 2 years of age and runs its course with aging

It is related to unformed digestive system. With aging digestive tract matures and food allergy (FA) vanishes. But in some cases FA doesn’t vanish and might grow into allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis or even asthma. This phenomenon in medical science is called ‘atopic march’.

Fatc 2. Up to now there is no answer why ‘atopic march’ happens

It is proved that that risk of allergy occurence within children constitutes 30-40% if one of the parents suffers from allergy; and 70-75% if both parents suffer from this disease. Risk of ‘atopic march’ will decrease if thorough treatment and preventive treatment of food allergy are being carried out.

Fact 3. In most cases FA might be caused by well-known products

It is surprisingly that the most allergic product for infants is not chocolate or exotic fruit but ordinar cow milk. Apart from milk ‘the great eight’ of the most allergic products comprises: chicken eggs, wheat, peanuts, soybeans, nuts, shrimps, crabs and fish.

Fact 4. Atopic dermatitis in most of children is caused by food allergy

Allergy/food sensitization may contribute to the development of atopic dermatitis, and more often in children than in adults.

Fact 5. The significant factor in the risk of atopic dermatitis is the intestine dysbacteriosis

In 80-90% of children with atopic dermatitis, intestine dysbacteriosis is revealed. Up to now specialists argue what apprears first: atopic dermatitis or intestine dysbacteriosis . It is exactly known that a child in atopic dermatitis confronts vicious cycle: hypersensitization – itch – nervous-reflectory irritability – vegetative viscelar disturbance – digestive tract disfunction – hypersensitization(1).

Besides, presently it is proved that intestine dysbacteriosis in the AD affects indirectly the composition of skin micro flora: decrease of lactobacteria in the intestine brings about growth of Staphylococcus epidermidis on the skin which consequently might cause allergy and infectious complications*.

Complex treatment of allergodermathosis in children

  • Skin care

Complex treatment of allergodermathosis in children should include consistent treatment of digestive tract diseases, detoxication (enterosorption), and products restoring intestine microflora balance.

Lactofiltrum® in AD promotes:

  • sorptions of allergens and toxic agents
