Pediatric and Neonatal Allergy

Allergic diseases in children have increased significantly in recent years and now affect up to 30% to 35% of children; which are the major cause of morbidity in children. Allergy tends to be more common in children as compared to the adults, with allergic rhinitis, asthma, eczema, and food allergy. As the child matures the distribution and the pattern of diseases start changing. Infants are more likely to present with food allergy, gastrointestinal symptoms and wheezing atopic eczema, whilst the older children typically present with allergic rhinoconjunctivitis and allergic asthma.
 
Atopic children have a genetic predisposition, which is the exposure to the environmental allergens, infection, and irritants that will determine the sensitization to different dietary and inhalant allergens. As the genetic and environmental factors which act on an immature cellular immune system are better elucidated and their roles established, the implementation of more abiding preventive efforts will be developed.
