Exposing Infants To Wipes May Trigger Food Allergy

Recent studies show that exposing infants to wipes may trigger food allergy that may impact your kids’ quality of life.

Studies showed a mix of environmental and genetic factors that must co-exist to trigger the allergies in children. It includes genetics that alter skin absorbency, use of infant cleansing wipes that leave soap on the skin, skin exposure to allergens in dust and skin exposure to food from those providing infant care.

However the factors leading to a food allergy can be modified in the home environment by the following methods :

  • Wash your hands before handling the baby.
  • Limit use of infant wipes that leave soap on the skin.
  • Rinse soap off with water.
