How to Help a Child with Spring Allergies

Spring allergies may be an annoyance for a child with mild symptoms. The best way to prevent allergy symptoms is to avoid the allergen, but at certain times of year that may be difficult. Here are a few helpful tips on how to combat allergies for your child:

  • Keep your child indoors on days that are both dry and windy.
  • Don’t ask your child to do yard work or other outdoor chores during peak spring allergy season.
  • Remove and wash clothing that your child has worn outside.
  • Have your child shower or bathe when coming in from outside
  • Keep doors and windows closed when pollen counts are high (check your local weather) and use air conditioning to keep your car and home cool.
  • Combat dust mites by vacuuming your home often (using a machine with a HEPA filter).
  • See an allergist for medical advice, to be properly diagnosed and discuss allergic triggers.
