 Here are some great 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. Should be easy during the summer months!
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. Drinking lots of clear fluids through the day can help get rid of toxins and flush out body.
9. Peak pollen production typically occurs in early morning, so try to plan outside activities at other times of the day.

  7. Love Claritin.

    If your allergies are severe, cover your mattress with a plastic cover and then make sure you have a mattress pad for comfort. Vacuuming carpeted areas frequently is another thing you can do or better yet, no carpet at all.

  16. Great tips. We bought our son a hypoallergenic pillow. We also use small air purifiers in our house and will get a bigger one at some point. Allergies are a nuisance but thankful for products and medication when needed that give relief!!

  21. I think my son has allergies but I'm not entirely sure. Yes bad mommy for not knowing but I haven't seen him really suffer from anything. At least not as badly as I do. I'm considering giving him something but I'd hate to do it if he doesn't really need it.
