HOW TO COPE WITH SPRING ALLERGIES

3/28/2019
 
Hi Dunwoody Pediatric families! As many of us have noticed, beautiful trees are beginning to bloom and cars are starting to develop a yellow coating indicating pollen season is here! Here is a helpful article about what are potential symptoms of seasonal allergies with some suggested ways to manage them.

Safe over the counter products that may benefit children aged 2-12 years include Children's Allegra, Children's Zyrtec and Children's Claritin.
Proper dosing is listed on the bottle. If you're more interested in what is blooming in Atlanta currently and what the pollen count is, here is a useful resource from the Atlanta Allergy and Asthma practice.

And of course, if you have further questions about if your child is showing symptoms of allergies or about how to help manage them, feel free to give us a call at Dunwoody Pediatrics. We are always happy to help!
