Happy Spring! Thankfully the warm weather is upon us, but with that warm weather comes allergy season. The pollen count is predicted to be higher than average this spring and we have already seen evidence of that already. This is just a reminder that seasonal allergies is a chronic issue and requires daily measures at home to manage symptoms. Here are some ways to manage season allergies:
-take daily prescribed or over the counter allergy medications such as Claritan, Allegra, Flonase nasal spray, nasal decongestants, etc.
-shower daily. Wash face and hands frequently through out the day, pollen can build up on your skin and clothes without us even realizing it.
.Please encourage your child to drink water, carry extra tissues, wash hands/face in bathroom. There is no medicine/treatment the nurse can provide for seasonal allergies in school. We try to avoid sending students home and having them miss school for a chronic issue that needs to be managed at home.
We're happy to answer any questions.
