What caused the sudden sniffling and sneezing? It's time to play detective and find out.
Seasonal changes may be the culprit. Spring and fall bring hay fever. There may be other conditions in your child's life that prompted the condition. Seek out what may be triggering the issues.
Allergy testing can narrow down the exact source so it can be avoided.
If you know your child’s triggers, you can adjust lifestyle and behavior. Reduce outdoor playtime during pollen season. Remove carpeting to eliminate dust mites that cause allergies.
Easing the Symptoms
- Showering off pollen from outdoor play may reduce symptoms.
- Take antihistamines and allergy recommendations as recommended.
- Use a nasal lavage when necessary.
