Fall is one of my favorite times of year but, along with the leaves changing and all the gorgeous fall decorations comes seasonal allergies.
There are few things that can ruin your fall like seasonal allergies. My kids are all lucky enough to suffer from seasonal allergies and in the last few weeks, they have all started sniffling.
This morning, we had full on tears from one of my kids who did not want to go to school.
So what do you do when seasonal allergies hit hard?
Determine if you are dealing with a cold or allergies. Colds and allergies are treated differently so it helps to know what you are dealing with. Since many symptoms are similar, it can be hard to tell the difference. If you aren’t sure, check with your child’s pediatrician before treating symptoms.
Find resources to help. The Smart Allergy Mom™ Toolkit by the makers of Children’s Claritin is a great resource, and one that you should definitely check out if you have any allergy sufferers in your house.
It includes helpful tips and information that you need to understand and better manage your kids’ allergies including an allergy forecaster to help you track the pollen count in your area.
