Spring is definitely a season to look forward to. The warmer weather, budding flowers, and the realization that Summer is just around the corner. But to some people, Spring also brings allergies, seasonal allergies. Just when we thought that winter colds were long gone – we start hearing sneezes and sniffles.

Allergy season is a great time to do a thorough Spring cleaning. It is a great time to change out your air filters. Those air filters trap pet dander, pollen, dust mites, and so much more. When Spring time comes we have more allergens in the air which stay trapped in the filter. Changing the filter regularly will help avoid build-up. Dusting around the house also help with any allergens that may have entered your home. Vacuuming with a HEPA filter helps in watching all those allergens that cling to our shoes.
Know what triggers their allergies
Allergy testing may be exactly what your child needs in order to understand the triggers. I know exactly what my son is allergic to because of his allergy test. We found out all his allergies are environmental. The allergy test was such a game-changer for us because we learned what triggered his allergies and when they occurred – always around Spring/Summer. Once we knew what affected his allergies we avoided certain types of grass and tried to stay away from certain trees/plants. Be sure to check the weather report for pollen and mold counts.
At the end of the day, we just want our kids to feel happy and healthy. I am constantly reading up on ways to help my son coop with his allergies. There are definitely days that are better than others but we’ve learned how to deal with it. I always make sure to talk to my son about what to look for and if he feels anything to let the nurse in school know or to advise mom or dad. He has dealt with allergies since he was an infant so he is really good at changing his sheets because of his dust mite allergy or making sure to wear long pants if he knows he’s going to be on grass.
