A Note from the Medical Editor
Spring means flower buds and blooming trees but for many, it also brings sneezing, wheezing and watery eyes.

In this edition of our newsletter we bring you information on some of the most common seasonal allergies and how to treat them. Learn how to reduce your child’s exposure to the things that trigger the symptoms and nip the allergies in the bud!

If you are concerned about your child’s symptoms, talk with your pediatrician to find out what specific allergies your child may have and how best to treat them.
