Children With Seasonal Allergies

Children With Seasonal Allergies

Seasonal allergies, also known as allergic rhinitis, is a common problem for children and young adults. Allergic rhinitis is usually caused by an immune system response to particles from pollen, mold, flowers, trees, grasses, and other plants.

Children with allergies might have a runny nose, itchy nose, watery or itchy eyes, itchy throat, etc. There are a variety of treatment options for your child’s allergies, which might include nasal rinses, over-the-counter medicine, or prescriptions from your child’s health care provider.

Treatment for allergies in children

  • Allergy avoidance if possible
  • Nasal rinses
  • Showering or bathing after playing outside
  • Antihistamines like cetirizine (zyrtec)
  • Steroid nasal spray
  • Prescription treatment

If you think your child has allergies, typically an appointment with a qualified healthcare professional is a good idea as it can be tricky to tell the difference between allergies, colds, or other medical problems.  Also, it is somewhat unusual for allergies to manifest before the age of 2 years of age.  At Brave Care, our pediatric experts can help ease your child's allergy symptoms.
