When do allergies start to occur in children?
Allergies can occur at a very early stage. Food allergies are usually among the first allergies to occur in infancy. Since babies should be fed exclusively on breast milk or breast milk substitutes in the first six months, these allergies usually only become apparent at the earliest when they come into contact with other foods.
This early allergy is often an allergy to cow’s milk. Infants typically react to this with diarrhoea. The occurrence of a pollen allergy is typical for the pre-school age.
