Allergies

Spring, summer and fall, seasonal allergies are very common.  Symptoms include itchy, watery red eyes; sneezing; clear runny nose; and an itchy palate or throat.  Common triggers are trees in the spring, grasses in the summer and weeds in the fall.
 
Over the counter medications which are quite effective and non-sedating are now available for children over the age of two.  These include Nasacort (Triamcinolone Acetonide), Claritin (Loratadine) and for children four and up, Flonase (Fluticasone).
 
If you think your child has seasonal allergies and he or she is not responding to medication OR if you are not sure, please make an appointment with our office.  Many children do not require allergy testing if they respond well to treatment with medication as needed.
 
Along with maintaining proper medication, reducing exposure to allergens can greatly decrease the effects of seasonal allergies;
 
Keep windows closed in home and autos.  Use air conditioning when needed and available.
Use cool compress on eyes several times a day.
Remove pollen carried in and on body by changing clothing and showering daily.
Change bed linens every other day.
Dust and vacuum when those affected by allergies are not at home.(Ideally with an 8 hour window of return).
