Fall is in full swing here in Kansas! Unfortunately, so are the allergies in this household. This time of year everyone in my house tries to survive fall allergies the best we can. As much as I want to crawl into bed until the first freeze, it just isn’t possible. Over the years we’ve learned a few important ways to cope. The one thing you can count on is that I have a nice stockpile of Claritin, so we don’t run out at the wrong time. I made the mistake of not making sure we had enough Claritin on hand one year and it got ugly fast! If you or a family member is suffering from allergies take a look at tips below to help keep everyone enjoying life!
Tip to Survive Fall Allergies:
1. Be sure to have Children’s Claritin, the #1 pediatrician-recommended non-drowsy allergy brand, on hand!
2. Multi-vitamins are building blocks to having a strong immune system. Make taking a multi-vitamin part of your
child’s daily routine.
3. Let there be light! Mold doesn’t like sunlight, so try to keep your curtains open during the day. Should be easy
during the summer months!
4. Did you know that most pillows trap allergens, dust mites, and bacteria? Monitor the cleanliness of the pillow
your child with allergies sleeps on and replace if necessary.
5. Back to school season means lots of laundry for many moms. Be sure to remove laundry from the washing
machine promptly. Allowing wet clothes to sit in the washer means mold can quickly grow there.
6. Monitor pollen counts and adjust outdoor before and after school activities accordingly. Dry, windy days
can be particularly high in pollen.
7. Showering or bathing at the end of the day as opposed to the morning can be helpful in removing allergens
from body surfaces and hair.
8. Stay hydrated! Always send your child to school with a bottle of water. Drinking lots of clear fluids through the
day can help get rid of toxins and flush out body.
9. Peak pollen production typically occurs in early morning, so try to plan outside activities at other times of the day.
