It’s Seasonal Allergy Time!

We have been blessed with some very warm spring weather lately. This means we are spending more time outside. Which also means that our seasonal allergies are acting up. E was unfortunate enough to inherit my allergies. As soon as my eyes start watering and my nose gets stuffed up, I know he is not far behind. We commiserate with sniffles.

With T-Ball season starting and the beautiful weather, we will be outside…a lot. The pollen will soon be flying around and the trees will be in full bloom {my number one seasonal allergy}. This also means we will have to close the house up and put the air on. It’s sad that we can’t enjoy the spring breezes. Well, we can, but E and I will pay for it.

Recently, I become a part of  the Children’s Claritin Mom Crew and it came just at the right time! Thankfully, they sent me a ton of Children’s Claritin {and adult, too!} that has already been put to good use.

As I was looking on Claritin’s website, I came across some great Allergy Management Tips. Some we already do but I found some new tips that we have put in place as well.

allergy management tips

1. Beat the clock.  Peak pollen production occurs in early morning, so try to plan outside activities at other times of the day.

2. The change will do you good. A quick shower and a fresh change of clothes will take care of pollens that may have collected on hair or fabrics while you were outside.

3. Clear the air. When driving, keep windows up and set the air conditioner on recirculate. At home, keep windows closed. Use air conditioning and change filters often.

4. Cover up. Cover air conditioning vents with cheesecloth for additional pollen filtration.

How do you keep your allergies in check?
