Hello doctor,

My 2 year 9 months old daughter was tested and she has an egg white allergy. She ate scrambled eggs accidentally. Should I worry? Is it a problem if the egg is scrambled? Please, can you advise?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Do not worry. However, please watch for symptoms of allergy like hives and severe itching and in worst case scenario breathlessness. If breathlessness occurs, it is best to rush the child to the nearest hospital. The other symptoms are mostly controlled by syrup Allegra (3.5 ml) for two such doses spaced 12 hours apart. Steroids and Adrenaline may be required in the worst case scenarios.
