Now that we are in the swing of the school season, we are battling more than homework. We are battling allergies!
My kids have been blessed with seasonal allergies, just like good ‘ole mom. When I start getting sniffly and congested, I know that they will soon follow. We are just getting over our first round with the allergies. But I know that there are many, more to come!
As a member of the Claritin Mom Crew, I am sharing some helpful Back to School Allergy tips that I have already started implementing.
Back to School Allergy Tips
1. Be sure to have Children’s Claritin, the #1 pediatrician-recommended non-drowsy allergy brand, on hand!
2. Multi-vitamins are building blocks to having a strong immune system. Make taking a multi-vitamin part of your child’s daily routine.
3. Let there be light! Mold doesn’t like sunlight, so try to keep your curtains open during the day.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. Monitor pollen counts and adjust outdoor before and after school activities accordingly. Dry, windy days can be particularly high in pollen.
7. 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.
8. Stay hydrated! Always send your child to school with a bottle of water. Drinkings lots of clear fluids through the day can help get rid of toxins and flush out body.
9. Peak pollen production typically occurs in the early morning, so try to plan outside activities at other times of the day.

I always hate the fall weather because in Texas it is ragweed season. In fact, I am recovering from a sinus infection and bronchitis, thanks to allergies. I usually use Claritin on a daily basis to help prevent my allergy issues but I always forget that my dr said I could take it twice a day during the rough seasons.
