Symptoms in children: How to help them understand

Child sneezing due to allergic reaction

Seeing your kids suffering with allergies can be as bad if not worse than having them yourself. If you notice allergy symptoms in your children, there are some things you can do to better help them cope:

  1. Help them understand

    If your child develops allergies, it is a good idea to explain it to them in simple terms. Point out and help them identify their triggers.

  2. Make others aware

    Since you can’t be around all the time, be sure to inform teachers, caregivers, and other parents that your child has allergies and how you wish them to be managed in your absence.

  3. Plan around the allergy

    Together with your child, create a plan to cope with their allergy discomforts when you aren’t around. Medicines should always be taken with adult supervision.
