Q
Allergies

Good day. My son has had allergies since he was 6 months. From bad eczema, to some food allergies. Now his eyes are always itchy. I bought allergex and eye drops and it seems not to help. It seem like his allergic reaction changes each year. Please help

Allergies do change with age. We call this the "Allergic March". Babies often start with eczema and food allergies and then progress in childhood to nasal and respiratory allergies, as well as conjunctivitis. This may be the way house dust mite allergies or pet allergies progress. It would be helpful to have him allergy tested so then you can tackle the underlying problem.
