Solving the Summertime Sneezes

Doctor Shivani Rasalingam from UBMD Pediatrics stopped by today with some useful tips that every parent should keep in mind when their kids play outside.

She says that this time of year, grass is a leading cause of allergies in young kids, with itchy eyes and sore throat often a result. Dr. Rasalingam suggests that, if possible, to keep your home’s windows closed and to shower your kids after they return indoors from outside.

Dr. Rasalingam also shared that mold can grow in the shower or basement fairly easily, and to keep a watchful eye on its growth. Simply antihistamines (nasal and oral) can help lessen the effects of allergens in kids; consult your doctor for more information.
