Get to know what triggers your child’s allergies


The most common trigger of outdoor allergies in kids is pollen from trees, grass, and weeds.2

Many allergens produce similar symptoms and will benefit from the same efforts at relieving them.

You can help minimize symptoms


Here are tips to alleviate seasonal allergies:4

 Stay indoors with the windows closed when the pollen count is high, and on windy days4

 Control dust in the home, especially in your child's bedroom.4

 When possible, remove wall-to-wall carpet, window blinds, and down-filled blankets or pillows4

 Wash bedding, curtains, and clothing often. Use hot water. This helps get rid of dust mites4

 Use air conditioning instead of opening the windows 4

 After playing outside on days when the pollen count is high, have your child take a shower. They should also wash their hair and change clothes.4
