Pet allergies – I have known many mothers who don’t allow their children walk barefoot outside or inside the park. All year, their children wear socks. They do not know what kind of tree the flowers in their home are. Even with this protection, Thai children have a higher chance of getting infected that other children.
Pediatricians have advised mothers to avoid allergies for years. Numerous studies showed that children are more susceptible to allergic reactions to asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and eczema if they come into contact early. Children who came into contact with dogs and cats after birth were found to have lower levels of immunoglobulin e antibodies and 15 to 21 percent less eczema.
Since the beginning of the twentieth century, allergy cases have increased. According the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States, where children were never malnourished, between 8 and 10 percent of children suffer from asthma.
Asthma refers to a chronic lung disease. Asthma causes swelling and narrowing of airways. This can lead to symptoms such constipation and coughing. Traditional wisdom says that the symptoms of asthma can be reduced by reducing allergic substances in the house.
However, a study conducted by the National Institute of Alcohol and Epidemiology (NIAID) with the financial support of the Urban Environment and Childhood Asthma (URECA”) study revealed that children with bacterial or allergic conditions before they developed asthma were more likely be exposed to the virus. Their findings are published in 2018 Journal of Allergies and Clinical Immunology.
The study covered 42 children. One hundred and thirty-seven (27%) of the children had asthma at age 6.
Copio University Hospital in Holland reports in Pediatrics that children who grew up with cats or dogs at home are more likely to have allergies than their peers. The study showed that children who lived with pets or were part of households were generally healthy. They wrote that the children of people who take their pets out and bring back more germs are better than those who keep their pets indoors.
Albert University’s research, published in Microbium, found that children who have more than animal germs, dust, or gray, are more likely to have two types microorganisms: one is less allergic and the other is obese. Research also showed that STEP infections were less common in mothers with pets. These infections are more common in infants who have just been born.
Researchers at the University of San Diego Night Lab are conducting the largest study of microorganisms that humans have ever seen. This conclusion was reached after researchers conducted more than a dozen studies.
A University of California study found that dogs who live in close proximity to germs were more likely than other pets to get them.
The mice that were exposed to the dust in that house were more immune to allergies. In 2016, researchers examined the feces for 307 children. They discovered that children without a dog had higher levels bacteria and allergies. Recent research from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden showed that children with more pets were more likely than others to get immunized. The immunity of children increases when there are more pets than one.
A 2008 European study found that keeping pets at home is beneficial to pregnant mothers. Researchers found that unborn babies whose mothers come into contact with farm animals have more active immune cells in their blood. It seems that microorganisms present in the mother’s womb may be beneficial to the baby.
Since long time, it has been known that having a dog at the home of a child is good for their mental health. It is also good for the physical health. Pets protect children from allergies. Children are more immune to allergies if they have contact with animals. Your chances of developing allergies (allergic rhinitis), asthma, eczema or hay fever (allergic rhinoitis) decreases the more pets and cats you have.
