Allergy to egg white is most popular from allergies on the food allergy list. Most often, its symptoms are observed in infants and young children. The reaction to the protein in the egg may already occur in u breastfed newborns or bottle-fed children who have not yet consciously tasted the egg.

Unfortunately, sometimes the symptoms of chicken protein allergies are very strong. In most cases they disappear at school age.

Dangerous, allergenic allergens are most often found in egg white, much less in yolk. Unfortunately, even after separating the protein from the yolk, the latter may have traces of protein that may be allergic. Therefore, babies and young children allergic to protein should avoid eating yolks.

Allergy to eggs can have different symptoms. The most common problem is:

  • vomiting,
  • hives,
  • recurrent stomach aches.
