Allergy Risk Screener
It cannot be said with 100% certainty whether a child will develop an allergy. What is certain is that the frequency of allergies is linked to heredity. Allergies in themselves are not hereditary, but there is a higher risk of developing an allergy, if one or both of the parents or siblings have allergies.
Does anyone in your family have allergic nose and eye symptoms (hay fever)?
The most common symptoms: shortness of breath, frequent coughing, asthma. The symptoms often occur together and after contact with certain substances (e.g. pollen, house dust mites).
