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?

Do not worry. However, please watch for symptoms of allergy like hives and severe itching and in worst case scenario breathlessness.

Steroids and Adrenaline may be required in the worst case scenarios.
