Itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, stuffy head, and runny noses…
This time of year, it’s often hard to tell if your child is suffering from allergies or the common cold. Nasal allergies, also known as allergic rhinitis or hay fever, may appear in children as young as 2 to 3 years of age!
If you are concerned, talk with your pediatrician to find out what specific allergies may be affecting your child and how to best treat them, while still letting kids enjoy the outdoors.
