The hallmarks of allergy season can be miserable, and it’s even worse to see your child suffer from allergies. Even though allergies can’t be cured, our pediatric specialists offer steps to help reduce your child’s symptoms and help them feel better. Knowing your child’s trigger seasons, reducing the chance of an allergy attack, and treating symptoms when they happen are the best measures you can provide to prepare in advance and reduce your child’s suffering from allergies.

Seasonal Allergies and Its Symptoms

Seasonal allergies are often caused by plant pollen. Different plants release pollen at different times of the year, meaning your child’s allergies depend on what type of plant pollen is causing your child’s symptoms. Because their allergies depend on the season and type of plant pollen, it’s important to know what type of pollen is affecting your child. When you speak with our pediatricians, we can perform allergy tests to determine the type of pollen affecting them and plan ahead.

Once our team has determined the types of pollen that causing your child’s allergies, knowing what type can allow us to help you prepare in advance to help minimize their symptoms. Allergy attacks are reactions in the immune system, causing false alarms that cause the body to defend itself against pollen, dust, and mold. While allergens are harmless, those with allergies will experience symptoms, including:

  • Red, watery, itchy eyes
  • Stuffy, runny, nose
  • Sneezing
  • Red, itchy, dry skin
  • Shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing
  • Hives and itchy welts
