Intolerance of Chicken Protein

The intolerance of chicken protein is characterised – as the name suggests – by an overreaction to the proteins in the egg white of chicken eggs. Particularly among children and young people, this is one of the most frequent intolerances against food. Children often develop, as is also the case with several other intolerances, a tolerance to the respective food so that the intolerance vanishes as time goes by.

Erythema, itching, coughing, diarrhoea, digestive problems or nausea, among others, may occur as symptoms. Similar to other intolerances, the avoidance of chicken protein is the only therapy.
