It’s Back to school season and with that it means allergies, and our family, as usual, is living proof of that.. Especially me and my daughter.. We have been suffering from the pollen changes and the dust / and bacteria of mold. So I thought I would share some hints and tips with you to help you all this fall.

- Be sure to have Children’s Claritin, the #1 pediatrician-recommended non-drowsy allergy brand, on hand!
- Multi-vitamins are building blocks to having a strong immune system. Make taking a multi-vitamin part of your child’s daily routine.
- 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!
- 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
- 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.
- Monitor pollen counts and adjust outdoor before and after school activities accordingly. Dry, windy days can be particularly high in pollen.
- 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.
- 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.
- Peak pollen production typically occurs in early morning. so try to plan outside activities at other times of the day.
Some helpful tips that I’ve heard will help, eating healthy and eating local especially for adults if you eat a teaspoon of local harvested honey a day it will help you overcome seasonal allergies to pollen.. Although it’s not recommended to give honey to babies and young toddlers, so please ask your pediatricians first before giving honey to them.
If you like to go hiking, biking or walking in wooded area’s be sure to be well protected and prepared ahead of time, take your antihistamines before you go to prevent any misery to come, and take some tissues just incase, be sure plan on going straight home after so that you can change clothes immediately and shower / bath to get all pollen and weeds off your body and hair to lessen the exposure.
Don’t let allergies take control of your and your loved one’s lives. TAKE that control back..
