Kids And Allergies - What To Watch For


The end of May is a peak time for allergy symptoms for many people as the tree and grass pollen seasons collide. 

Doctor Brian Schroer treats allergies at Cleveland Clinic Children's.  He says even for parents who have their own allergies, it can sometimes be hard to recognize when a child is developing symptoms.

Schroer says parents who suspect their child may have allergies should have them tested to make sure they don't have something else, like asthma. 

For those who do have seasonal allergies, he says there are plenty of safe and effective allergy products available over the counter. 

Doctor Schroer says parents can also try having their child wear sunglasses while outdoors to help decrease the amount of pollen that blows into their eyes.
