News From Nurse Kayla
With Spring rolling in, you and your children may be experiencing an increase in seasonal allergies. Seasonal allergies are often referred to as “hay fever,” and may cause your child to have symptoms similar to a cold. Hay fever and other allergies are caused when your body tries to fight off what it thinks is an invader, just like when you get sick. This month we will focus on how to manage seasonal allergies in your child.
Why It Matters:
According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI), in data published from the 2014 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), 8.4% of US children under age 18 suffered from hay fever, 10% from respiratory allergies, 5.4% from food allergies, and 11.6% from skin allergies. Seasonal allergies can cause:
-Difficulty concentrating in class
-Falling asleep in class
Signs of Allergies:
Allergies can present in many different ways. Some common symptoms include:
Severe allergies can cause your child to become covered in hives, become dizzy or have difficulty breathing. If you notice these signs in your child, call 911.
What You Can Do:
-Have your child rinse their hands and face after playing outside.
-Keep indoor windows closed during high-pollen times.
-If you think that your child may need medications for their allergies, talk to their provider about treatment options.
-Let your child’s school nurse and teacher know.
-If your child has a severe allergy (such as with peanuts), make sure that the school is aware and has an Epi Pen on campus.
-If your child has asthma, talk to their doctor and the school nurse about their allergies. Allergies can make asthma worse.
