Why does the external environment make the baby allergic?

Pets, dust mites, pollen, and smoke -filled environments are also factors that cause allergies for babies. How can they fight them?


Pets bring dandruff, hair, and dust mites. After the baby is exposed to, there will be a series of allergic reactions (atopic dermatitis, asthma). How can a mother avoid pets to induce the baby’s allergies:

Try to avoid your baby contact with pets
If pets have been raised in the home and do not need to be discarded, please clean up the home environment and reduce the accumulation of allergic substances.

dust mite:

Mainly exist in bedrooms and bedding. The cloth products in other homes are also places they love. Mom should:

  • Wash the sheets, pillows, quilts, towels, etc. (water temperature is best than 55 degrees Celsius to kill dust mites and wash away the allergens that produce).
  • Do not use wool and other wool pads.
  • Try not to place fluffy toys in the bedroom and replace them with clean wood or plastic toys. (If you must keep the plush toy, it is recommended to clean it once a week)
  • It is recommended to use the carpet as little as possible, and the use of wooden floors, tiles, etc. can reduce the substances of the allergens of dust mites and other animals.
  • Dust mites are easier to reproduce in a humid environment. Moms can use dehumidifiers to reduce indoor humidity.


The pollen contains some protein, which is an external material for the baby’s immune system. After the baby is sucking, it is easy to cause asthma. It is very uncomfortable. It is recommended that the mother:

  • Try to avoid going out in areas where pollen floats (especially spring)
  • If you have to go out, put on a mask for your baby to avoid inhalation of allergens.


The baby in the second -hand smoke environment will increase the chance of allergies and asthma. Although during pregnancy, the baby’s probability of allergies caused by the mother’s smoking or exposed to second -hand smoke has not yet been clearly determined, but we still recommend that for the mother’s own health and the potential allergies caused by the baby, the mother and the baby should try to avoid smoking as much as possible. Or be in a second -hand smoke environment!
