Back to School - Tips to Minimize Allergies

by - 9/22/2009

What do you think is one of the most challenging – and perhaps unexpected -- health issues for school children this fall?

  1. Sleep deprivation
  2. Allergies
  3. Lack of concentration
The answer is B – Allergies. More than 40% of children suffer from allergies, which can make it hard to concentrate on school work, tough to participate in school sports and difficult to get a good night’s sleep.

But, there are some easy ways to minimize allergens this back-to-school season. Here are simple suggestions that start at home so you help send your kids off to school with fewer symptoms and reduce the allergens they trek back into the house:
  • Get a head start. Wash the body, but especially the hair, as a nightly ritual so kids rinse away allergens gathered during the day. 
  • Outsmart the symptoms. Get ahead of allergy discomfort by talking to your pharmacist about solutions that can last through the school day and night. There are many different choices for Parents and Children’s ZYRTEC Perfect Measure just introduced the only allergy medicine dosed in pre-filled spoons of sugar-free, dye-free allergy medicine that offer relief for 24 hours for kids six years and older.
  • Wash, Rinse, Dry. There’s new technology that will now let you send your kids to school with virtually allergen-free clothes. The Maytag Bravos Washer and Dryer remove up to 95% of allergens, so your family can start the day off with even cleaner clothes.
  • Tour the school. You probably know the triggers in and around your home. Walk through the school and talk to the school nurse to identify potential allergy triggers or learn how the school monitors air quality.

  2. As a teacher, I think it's great for students to tour the school early and discuss allergies with their teachers. One year I had three students with peanut allergies that I needed to be briefed on. It was nice to have that information ready to go before the year began.
