Children's Claritin and Fall Allergies



Hi neighbors!

What better way to start off a Fall Festival than by discussing fall allergies.  I don't know about your families, but I have 2-3 each fall that start sneezing, having itchy watery eyes, and scratchy throats.  My oldest son has been starting every morning with a cup of hot tea just to get the scratchy sound out of his voice.

Claritin is a big help during the allergy season.  I keep it on hand so when they start showing any symptoms, or if we are aware it is going to be a particularly bad day, we know that Claritin is there.  As a member of the Children's Claritin Mom Crew I recently received some tips to help you and your family as you head into the fall season and of course back to school.  Who needs allergies during school!  Check out these tips below:

From Children's Claritin:

1. Be sure to have Children’s Claritin, the #1 pediatrician-recommended non-drowsy allergy brand, on hand!
2. Multi-vitamins are building blocks to having a strong immune system. Make taking a multi-vitamin part of your child’s daily routine.
3. Let there be light! Mold doesn't like sunlight, so try to keep your curtains open during the day. Should be easy during the summer months!
4. Did you know that most pillows trap allergens, dust mites, and bacteria? Monitor the cleanliness of the pillow your child with allergies sleeps on and replace if necessary.
5. Back to school season means lots of laundry for many moms. Be sure to remove laundry from the washing machine promptly. Allowing wet clothes to sit in the washer means mold can quickly grow there.
6. Monitor pollen counts and adjust outdoor before and after school activities accordingly. Dry, windy days can be particularly high in pollen.
7. Showering or bathing at the end of the day as opposed to the morning can be helpful in removing allergens from body surfaces and hair.
8. Stay hydrated! Always send your child to school with a bottle of water. Drinking lots of clear fluids through the day can help get rid of toxins and flush out body.
9. Peak pollen production typically occurs in early morning, so try to plan outside activities at other times of the day.

Along with this great information I also received some really nice little packages to share with some of my neighbors here At The Fence.  The little packets include a Children's Claritin magnetic clip, a Children's Claritin pen, a Children's Claritin scratch pad, a Children's Claritin shopping list, and a reminder to vote:

Children's Claritin and KaBOOM! are helping bring play to kids in need by offering 12 national schools the chance to win Imagination Playground™ equipment. These mobile play sets are comprised of oversized foam blocks that can be assembled inside or outside, giving children of all abilities the opportunity to foster creativity and critical-thinking skills.
Your vote can make a difference! Join Children's Claritin, the #1 pediatrician-recommended non-drowsy allergy brand, and KaBOOM! to help select 4 schools to receive Imagination Playground™ equipment. You can visit http://Facebook.com/Claritin between 8/1-10/31 to cast your vote for one of twelve finalist schools. The four schools with the most votes will win Imagination Playground™ equipment for their students.



Two neighbors will each receive one of these Claritin packages.

My son uses claritin and he uses a saline nasal spray to help fight his allergies but more important than that he takes a shower after he has been outside!

Benadryl works wonders, but it does make me drowsy, so I can't always use it.

We use Allegra for allergies & we always keep the windows closed when our seasonal allergies act up.

For those of us who have allergies, well we have allergies. You learn to recognize the symptoms for what they are and get in front of reactions by taking Claritin
