Tips for eating out safely when living with a food allergy.
Activities with friends or school
Some physical activities such as swimming, ice skating, rollerblading etc. or even the excitement of going to a party or event, can be a trigger for allergies to worsen, especially eczema and asthma. Make sure your child has taken or applied their medications, and that they take rescue medications with them e.g. inhalers, antihistamines or emollients, just in case they experience a flare up on the day. Explain to the friends’ parent or caregiver what symptoms to look out for, so that they can remind your child to take action if symptoms start to appear.
