With 5 children in the house, chances are at least 1 is going to suffer from allergies. Well, we are over achievers in that area, and it appears all 5 kid suffer from seasonal allergies of some sort. Plus, all 4 girls have asthma to some degree just like their daddy. We have had a nebulizer in the house for over 15 years and still use it regularly. Therefore, when I received news that I was chosen to be part of the Children’s Claritin Mom Crew I was thrilled! We use our fair share of Claritin products for both children and adults, and besides, sharing information is what I like to do.
Ready for Allergy Season
Springtime means it is time to hunker down and get ready for allergy season. We have to make sure our medicine cabinet is supplied with not only medicines for the nebulizer but allergy medications as well. Children’s Claritin® is the #1 Pediatrician Recommended Non-Drowsy Allergy Brand. We have used it for years. The children enjoy the taste and we like that there is a liquid and chewable form to choose from. While some of the kids prefer the chewable, every once in a while one of them may want to just drink the syrup. Having choices that both taste great makes dosing easier.
Spring Allergy Tips
Claritin has supplied us with some great information and I found the following Spring Allergy Tips perfect for sharing:
- Start taking Claritin® allergy products as soon as symptoms start:Having medication on hand will help you prepare for allergy symptoms.
- Know your nemesis:When you understand what triggers your allergy symptoms, you can make an extra effort to avoid them. For example, grass pollen levels rise when grass is disturbed, so if that’s one of your triggers, wear a mask when mowing or avoid mowing altogether.
- Beat the clock:Peak pollen production can occur in early morning, so try to plan outside activities at other times of the day.
- Check the forecast:Avoid going outdoors when pollen counts are high. Also, heavy rains wash pollen from the air, making post-shower outings more comfortable. Beware of dry, windy days when pollen can be particularly intense.
