Are you curious to know if your child or toddler has allergies? Talking to your pediatrician is the best way to determine if your child or toddler has allergies.

Some of these signs include the types of symptoms your child is experiencing, the timing around when these symptoms occur, whether they are caused by indoor or seasonal allergies, and genetics.

5 Allergy Indicators
Every Parent Should Know

Symptoms

Symptoms

Running a fever is a cold symptom, not an allergy symptom. Allergy symptoms stick around longer than cold symptoms, which typically only last for 7 to 10 days.

Timing

Timing

Keep track of when your child is suffering to see what might be causing it - could it be indoor (year-around) or outdoor (seasonal) allergens?

Outdoors

Outdoors

Pollen allergies are seasonal, so if your child experiences the same symptoms at roughly the same time every year, keep track to narrow down what might be causing their symptoms.

Indoors

Indoors

If allergy triggers seem to be indoors, does it happen around pets or dust? Is there a difference between when they're in school or daycare?

Genetics

Genetics

A child has a 50% of getting allergies if one parent has them, and 75% chance of getting allergies if both parents do.
