Children with allergies are constantly trying to find ways to avoid triggers that can make them suffer from an attack. But is there also a way for the friends and family to help make life easier for them? Even if you don’t have allergies, it is important to be aware of child anaphylaxis symptoms. This way, you can be prepared to help in case of an emergency.
List of Child Anaphylaxis Symptoms
People with allergies already know how to manage their triggers. However, an emergency can happen at any time so it is best to be prepared to help. Here is a list of child anaphylaxis symptoms to watch out for in case of an emergency.
- Unease or agitations. Some people can usually feel when they are about to have an allergy attack, which explains an uneasy feeling. Check if the patient feels uneasy or agitated.
- Shortness of breath. If they are having trouble breathing, there is a huge chance that they are about to have an allergy attack. This may include tightness or swelling in the throat.
- Severe itching in the skin. This can often lead to hives so keep an eye out when the patient starts complaining about an itch.
Child anaphylaxis symptoms are easy to find and remember even during an emergency. However, it is always best to be ready with proper first aid knowledge so you can help ease their discomfort. With that in mind, you should consider taking first aid training.
