Babies under the age of 1 year usually have two types of allergy: food allergy — symptoms that result from food intake, such as, itchy eyes, lips swelling, rashes, stomach upset, and throwing up. Doctors would observe the symptoms to identify if it is an allergy to help parents avoid feeding or having that food again. One other common allergy for newborns is dermatitis. The newborn will have dry skin and red rashes. Some have round rashes on the cheeks or leaking lymph.
