If your child suffers with seasonal allergies, please be sure he/she is taking his/her prescribed allergy medication
including allergy eye-drops if prescribed. We do not stock allergy medicine in the health room other than a small supply of Benadryl for acute allergic emergencies.
Other tips to help manage your child’s allergies this spring:

- Have your child shower after coming in from outside to remove pollen from hair on the head and on the face (eyebrows/eyelashes).
- Rinse the nose with a nasal saline rinse to remove pollen after being outside.
- Keep your child’s bedroom windows/door closed, especially on windy days when pollen can more easily infiltrate the house through open windows.
