Does the baby's mother experience certain symptoms, such as hives, redness, and vomiting after eating? Try checking Mums, is there an egg in your baby's food. If there is, it could be your child is allergic to eggs, you know, Mums. Quoted from kidshealth.org, some children have allergies to certain types of food, most often are seafood, eggs and nuts. If your child is allergic, he will respond to the food as a dangerous substance and an allergic reaction appears that can vary for each child.

Children with egg allergy occur because their immune system is not perfect and unable to receive the protein contained in eggs. Some children are usually allergic to protein in egg whites, but do not rule out the possibility of allergies can also be caused by egg yolk protein.

The immune system is in charge of protecting the body from germs and the threat of other harmful substances. However, for the little one who is allergic to eggs, the body uses antibodies to fight egg protein which is considered a dangerous substance, Mums. Babies who have an egg allergy may feel unwell, followed by the appearance of a rash after eating eggs or foods that contain eggs.
Symptoms of an egg allergy shown by your child can appear as soon as he enters the food containing eggs into his digestion. The most frequent signs are:
  • On the skin a rash appears with itching, eczema, redness, or swelling 
  • In the digestive system there are symptoms of abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, or itching around the mouth 
  • Symptoms of the respiratory system can be runny nose, wheezing, or difficulty breathing 
  • The cardiovascular system shows a faster heart rate, low blood pressure, or other heart problems
  • In rare cases, the baby shows a very serious allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). Medical treatment must be given immediately because your child may have breathing problems and a decrease in blood pressure.
How to Handle Egg Allergies
Mums and Dads must be sensitive every time the child falls ill and experiences a rash when or after eating eggs. Usually, the doctor asks Mums to wait until the child is small enough and the doctor will allow your child to try the eggs again. If your child is suspected of having an allergy to eggs, avoid eating eggs or foods that contain eggs until your child is examined directly by a doctor. Your doctor may perform a skin test to check for allergens, both for eggs and food and other substances.
Your child who has an egg allergy must be prepared for unexpected events, especially when he eats eggs without Mums knowing. Discuss with your doctor and nurse to anticipate the incident. After that, the Mums child may be given drugs that must always be taken, such as antihistamines, or in severe cases, epinephrine to treat allergic reactions.

If you have proven allergies, of course the most effective way is to keep food ingredients away from eggs in your baby's food. However, Mums confirms whether your child is very sensitive to eggs, meaning he can't eat all foods that contain eggs including cakes and cakes, or just whole eggs that cause allergic reactions.
These are the various egg shapes listed on the food label:
  • Dry eggs
  • Egg whites
  • Boiled egg whites
  • Egg yolk
  • Boiled eggs
  •  Powdered egg
  •  Whole egg  
As an egg substitute, Mums can add proteins other than eggs such as red meat, chicken, fish, and nuts. For cakes, if your child likes food that requires baked cookies, such as cupcakes or brownies, you can replace egg ingredients using 1.5 tablespoons (22.2 milliliters) of oil and 1 teaspoon (5 milliliters) of baking powder for each egg. If your child has more than one food allergy, Mums may need to consult with doctors and nutrition experts so that the nutritional intake of the child is fulfilled.
