There may be snow on the ground, but it's still springtime. And as soon as it warms up, kids will be back outside enjoying the weather.
But as soon as the flowers and trees come back to life, your kids could start showing allergy symptoms.
Pediatricians say some can be subtle. They may include a cough that may be worse at nights.
This could be caused by a runny nose that drains into their throats. Doctors say, tree pollen, grass and weeds are the culprit this time of year.
They say try to limit your child's exposure when pollen counts are highest.
Closing the windows and running the central air may help, or you can try an over the counter medication.
"Some kids with mild allergy symptoms may respond very well to over-the-counter, long-acting, non-sedating antihistamines. So, that's loratadine, tyrosine, and fexofenadine. All of which come in kids formulations and are indicated down to very young ages."
Doctors say if the over-the-counter antihistamines don't work, you should talk to your pediatrician.
