Managing Seasonal Allergies in Children: Expert Advice from Concierge Pediatrics

As spring blossoms and pollen fills the air, many children experience seasonal allergies that can impact their daily lives. We’re happy to share expert advice on identifying and managing seasonal allergies in children, along with valuable insights into allergy testing, medication options, and lifestyle adjustments.

Understanding Seasonal Allergies: Seasonal allergies, also known as allergic rhinitis or hay fever, are a common condition in children caused by allergens such as pollen, mold, and grass. Symptoms may include sneezing, nasal congestion, itchy eyes, and coughing, which can significantly affect your child’s quality of life.

Identifying Allergy Triggers: Our team will work closely with parents to identify allergy triggers specific to each child. Through detailed medical history assessments and allergy testing, we can pinpoint the allergens causing your child’s symptoms, whether it’s tree pollen in the spring or ragweed in the fall.

Allergy Testing Options: We offer comprehensive allergy testing services to accurately diagnose your child’s allergies. Our team will determine the most appropriate testing method based on your child’s age, medical history, and symptoms. This information allows us to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your child’s needs. We also have Dr. Jake Rosenblum, an allergist in Roslyn, visit our office twice a month.

Medication Options: Depending on the severity of your child’s allergies, we may recommend various treatment options to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life. These may include over-the-counter or prescription antihistamines, nasal sprays, eye drops, or allergy shots (immunotherapy). We will work closely with you to find the most effective and safest medication regimen for your child.

Lifestyle Adjustments: In addition to medication, lifestyle adjustments can play a significant role in managing seasonal allergies in children. Simple strategies such as keeping windows closed during high pollen seasons, using air purifiers, washing bedding frequently, and showering after outdoor activities will help to minimize allergen exposure.
