The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and odds are high that your children are eagerly awaiting their chance to get outdoors! However, warmer weather doesn’t come without its fair share of risks, as spring brings severe seasonal allergies along with it.
Springtime is finally upon us. Unfortunately for many
of us, this also marks the return of itchy eyes skin,
frequent sneezing, heavy wheezing and nasal
congestions. The changing of the seasons is often the
peak for allergy triggers. Help your child stay allergy
free this year with these helpful tips:
Get Ahead and Stay Ahead of Allergy Season
Make an appointment with your primary care
physician or an allergy specialist to discuss a
treatment plan that works for your child before the
spring allergy season strikes.
Know Your Treatment
Don’t just rely only on your doctor for sources of
allergy relief. Know all the options that are available
to your child including any over the counter
medication that can be used to help treat allergies.
Block the Sources of Your Allergies
Don’t let the pollen or other allergens into your
home. Keep your windows closed during the day to
help block out the triggers of your child’s allergic
Stay Aware of the Outdoors
Most allergens are especially prominent in the early
morning air, so spending a little more time indoors
each morning before heading off can help keep your
child allergy free.
Many types of allergens can cling on to your child’s shoes and
spread all throughout the home. Control the spreading of these
allergies throughout the home by regularly vacuuming the
carpets in your home and wiping off hard surfaces. Lysol works
best at killing any germs and allergens that are harmful to you
and your children.
Keep Up with Your Laundry
Your child may love rolling around and getting dirty while
outdoors, but they won’t love the allergens that can cling onto
their clothing as a result. Wash your children’s bedding,
pillows, clothes and any other cloth material toys frequently
to help eliminate the build of pollen or any other allergen.
Conclusion: These helpful steps can help greatly reduce the
likelihood of your child having an allergy attack during spring
time. Making sure to stay ahead of the game is how you beat
allergy season. So for a spring season that is not filled with
runny noses, watery eyes and is instead filled with laughter
and joy be sure to follow the steps to battle allergies this
