Children's Claritin Back to School Allergy Tips

Its been a month since the kids started back to school, and I think I am finally back on task, and adjusted to our new routine.  It never fails, as soon as the kids are back in school, germs and allergies are running at full steam!

As a mom, I'm always looking for tips, tricks and ideas to help make daily life just a little bit easier!  Between after school activities, class projects, and homework - we can all use a little help!

Children's Claritin Back to School Allergy Tips:

1. Be sure to have Children’s Claritin, the #1 pediatrician-recommended non-drowsy allergy brand, on hand!

2. Multi-vitamins are building blocks to having a strong immune system. Make taking a multi-vitamin part of your child’s daily routine.

3. Let there be light! Mold doesn't like sunlight, so try to keep your curtains open during the day. Should be easy during the summer months!

4. Did you know that most pillows trap allergens, dust mites, and bacteria? Monitor the cleanliness of the pillow your child with allergies sleeps on and replace if necessary.

5. Back to school season means lots of laundry for many moms. Be sure to remove laundry from the washing machine promptly. Allowing wet clothes to sit in the washer means mold can quickly grow there.

6. Monitor pollen counts and adjust outdoor before and after school activities accordingly. Dry, windy days can be particularly high in pollen.

7. Showering or bathing at the end of the day as opposed to the morning can be helpful in removing allergens from body surfaces and hair.

8. Stay hydrated! Always send your child to school with a bottle of water. Drinking lots of clear fluids through the day can help get rid of toxins and flush out body.

9. Peak pollen production typically occurs in early morning, so try to plan outside activities at other times of the day.

If your child suffers from allergies, what is your best allergy tip?

My Daughter is grown and still has allergies. She does use the Claritin because it works.
