Spring has sprung and with it, allergy season is in full bloom. Dr. Tania Elliott, M.D., board-certified in allergy and immunology chatted with us about the do’s and don'ts to empower the one in four Americans that live with allergies.

For starters you need to figure out what’s causing your symptoms. It can be difficult to tell if the symptoms you are experiencing are allergies, so patients may not treat it with the right medication. Common symptoms of allergies are sneezing, runny nose, itchy, watery eyes and itching of the nose or throat.

And if your symptoms are from allergies, don’t forget to treat at first sign of symptoms with an oral antihistamine like ZYRTEC. Dr. Tania Elliott always recommends ZYRTEC to her patients because it provides a full 24 hours of indoor and outdoor allergy relief, and it starts working hard at hour 1 and stays strong day after day.

Something else you should do is keep your home clean so that pollen or other allergens are not settling into your carpeting, furniture or bedding, which can trigger symptoms even if you’re not spending too much time outside. You can also keep the windows closed and the air conditioning on so that when you are ready to get outside, you’re not already suffering from pollen that snuck inside.

And on that note, don’t forget that springtime is supposed to be fun! Embrace the benefits of spending time outdoors with your friends and family when you can. If your kids are suffering from allergies this season, don’t forget to give them a shower as soon as they get home. You don’t want to wait until the evening or (even worse) the morning. If you do, they can track pollen into their beds at night and sleep on what they are allergic to.

When your little ones appear sick, keep an eye out for eye rubbing or nose rubbing (aka the “allergic salute”), as these can be signs of allergies. If you notice any of these signs, consider an OTC allergy medicine like Children’s ZYRTEC Chewables, which are a great tasting, dye-free chewable that provides powerful allergy relief that stays strong day after day for the whole family.
