Egg Allergy

Eggs are the second commonest allergy triggers. Sometimes even small trace of egg can cause severe allergic reactions within minutes of ingestion.

An interesting aspect of an egg allergy is that it can cause symptoms not only after eating it, but merely with its fumes or even coming in direct contact with skin.

Egg allergy usually appears when kids are pretty young or the very first time they consume it. Most kids outgrow it by the time they are four to five years of age.

Cross Reaction: People allergic to hen eggs can also be allergic to duck and quail eggs and poultry, especially chicken.

Other Names: Albumin, Egg White, Emulsifier, Coagulant, Globulin, Ovalbumin, Vitalin, and Meringue Powder

Hidden Sources: Someone with an egg allergy has to be very cautious all the timewhile eatingout as eggs are an integral part of several snacks, starters, main course, and desserts.

Do remember that eggs can also be found in ice creams, cakes, pastas, macaroni, noodles, breads, candies, soufflés, waffles, custard, hot dogs, meatballs, rolls, mayonnaise, and marshmallows.Most commercially processed fast foods and confectionary products contain eggs. They can also be used in some salad dressings.
