Talk with your pediatrician about the symptoms of EoE. He or she will tell you that in young children, EoE may cause chronic vomiting and poor growth. Older children may describe difficulty swallowing. Symptoms may include a combination of the following:
- Refusing to eat, breast feed or take a bottle
- Choking and gagging on certain foods
- Food getting stuck in the esophagus
- Stomach pain
- Reflux symptoms that do not respond to anti-reflux medication
If you think your child may have EoE or an eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorder (EGID), our team, collaborating with your primary care provider, can provide answers and a plan.
