Allergy relief tips for Parents

Allergies can be frustrating for both kids and parents. Here are some allergy relief tips to help your family keep symptoms in check.


Start with teachers

Discuss your child's condition with the school nurse, teachers, coaches, and anyone else with whom your child has regular contact.


Declutter

Toys, knick-knacks and other types of clutter can be traps for dust and other allergens.


Open up

Kids with allergies often have a hard time expressing what they are feeling. Talk honestly with your child about his or her allergy management routine and encourage open dialogue with others.


What to watch for

Children's allergy symptoms include runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, allergic shiners and mouth breathing.


Put clothes away

Store all your child's clothes in drawers and closets. Try not to leave them lying about the room.


Sleep smart

Allergies can affect sleep, cause daytime fatigue and impact school performance. Make sure your child is getting the rest they need to help them be at their best. Then, do the same for yourself!
