First of all, it is necessary to ask for the help the doctor who will examine the child, will analyse his and your diet, will appoint necessary analyses for identification of food allergens. However you should not hope for results of similar analyses as often they do not allow to establish the allergy reason at absolutely small children especially.
Treatment consists in avoiding of contact with those products which cause an allergy. But it is quite difficult to make it as almost any product can become the reason of emergence of allergic reaction.
At first the hypoallergenic diet which excludes the products which were already causing allergic reactions in the child and also products which most often lead to developing of an allergy at most of children is formed.

- cow`s milk;
- chocolate, cocoa;
- honey, nuts;
- vegetables and fruit of orange and red shades;
- fish and other seafood.

Use of similar mixes helps to prevent many problems which can appear in the future, such as emergence and development of more serious and serious allergic illness. Most important it for the child who has genetic predisposition to allergic reactions as thanks to it at the kid the probability of emergence of an allergy to usual mix from cow`s milk increases.
