As fall settles in and the chill of winter begins touching our doorsteps, parents often gear up for the cold and flu season. But another culprit lurking in these seasons can make our children more than uncomfortable, and that’s fall and winter allergies. At MD First Primary & Urgent Care, Amrendra Kumar and Kasey Hudson have helped numerous children in our clinic resolve and treat these fall and winter allergy symptoms. In this article, we seek to help educate parents on the signs, symptoms, and treatment options for these seasonal allergies.
When Sneezes Aren’t Just About the Freeze: What are Fall and Winter Allergies?
Seasonal allergies can manifest in many ways in children, no matter the season. As the leave fall and winter frost begins, there are specific allergies that become more prevalent, affecting children with these sensitivities. Some of the symptoms that you should look out for as a parent include:
- Constant sneezing
- A nose that won’t stop running
- Eyes that resemble a leaky faucet
- A cough that isn’t flu-related
- An itchy nose
- Unexpected skin reactions
Check if keeping windows shut during high pollen days or cleaning out the heating vents makes a difference. If those sneezes and sniffles persist, over-the-counter antihistamines might come in handy. If you’re feeling out of your depth, it’s time to ring up the professionals. Dr. Kumar and Kasey Hudson aren’t just experts; they’re parents’ best allies when allergies ambush our kids. They can not only recommend stronger treatments but also pinpoint the sneaky allergens with specialized tests.
Navigating the maze of childhood illnesses and symptoms is no child’s play (pun intended!). With the knowledge from the section above, parents can make informed decisions about their child’s health. But remember, self-diagnosis and treatment can sometimes lead to more complications.
Just as they have their personalities, their reactions to allergens can vary widely, too. Watching them play freely, unburdened by irritating allergies is always heartening. So, let’s partner up and tackle these sneezy seasons head-on. Dr. Kumar, Kasey Hudson, and the MD First Primary & Urgent Care team are your community’s support system.
