Spring is Right Around the Corner, and so are Spring Allergies!

 

As another winter season cycles to an end, the imminent blooming of the spring trees begins to take place and the varying colors of the beautiful and natural world take their shape around us as they do every year. Unfortunately, this process can be the cause of some mild to severe irritation for many, as the pollen released can cause allergic reactions. Allergic reactions to pollen, also known as hay fever, often occur during the spring season, and can be an obstacle for children over the course of the season.  

 

Why Do We get Allergic Reactions in the Spring? 

Allergic reactions in the spring can be traced back to the blooming of trees and the release of tree pollen into the air we breathe in. Some of the trees responsible include: ash, birch, elm, pine, oak, pecan, hickory, poplar and walnut trees.  

 

How do I Identify Spring Allergy Symptoms?

  

Here are a few of the most common spring allergy symptoms: 

  • Runny nose, irritated nasal passages
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • Itchy or watery eyes
  • Cough
  • Congestion and/or sinus pressure

 

What Can I Do to Help My Child Avoid or Reduce the Effects of Spring Allergies? 

The best and most effective method of reducing spring allergic reactions is to identify and avoid the allergen. However, this may not be the most unavoidable or convenient solution. Below are a few other methods that can greatly help reduce the irritation for children:  

 

  • Wash and remove clothing worn by children outdoors
  • Showering or bathing after coming in from outside
  • Vacuuming your home often
  • Monitoring the pollen count via weather channels
  • Keeping doors and windows closed as much as possible
  • Visiting allergists for medical advice
  • Doctor recommended medicines

 

 

Spring time is quickly approaching and though we all may be looking forward to fun outdoor times and warmer temperatures, we can take the most effective precautions to avoid allergic reactions for ourselves and our children!
