Allergy Season is right around the corner!
It’s hard to focus in school or take a test with watery, itchy eyes and lots of sneezing and a runny nose, headache or sore throat.
Start thinking about those allergy medications now. As pollen levels start to elevate, please make sure your child is taking their allergy medicine/eye drops at home before they leave for school.
- Hydrate: Drink plenty of water to keep fluids in motion so irritants are flushed out.
- Rest: Get plenty of sleep so that your immune system can function at its peak.
(6-13 years old need 9-11 hours of sleep a night)
- Clean: Change your pillow cases frequently to stop re-contamination.
- Bathe: Wash hands and shower or bathe after being out in the pollen.
Here are is a good website to check the current pollen count and get ideas for allergy and asthma sufferers. :
