When spotting allergic reactions in children, some unusual side-effects can occur. Gluten allergy symptoms in children aren’t always easily detectable, some are uncommon, and some gluten allergies symptoms are not evident immediately and are mistaken for other allergies or disorders.
A skin prick test and a blood test are both used alternately to find out if one has a wheat gluten allergy. Wheat allergy is relatively rare and is found in about 1 % of the population. There exist 27 different potential wheat allergens with glutenin being a principal allergen class.
