Spring allergies are in full force and now more than ever it is extremely important to control allergy symptoms aggressively during the pandemic. The weather is getting nicer and you may find yourself wanting to get out for a walk and get some fresh air. For many people, the warmer weather is a relief but for those with seasonal allergies, you may be suffering. Many of you may be sneezing, congested, and experiencing significant eye symptoms. Sneezing and coughing can propel respiratory droplets many feet and aid transmission of the Coronavirus in asymptomatic carriers. Be aggressive with medication. Don’t add to the discomfort that you and your child are already feeling. It’s not too late to start those meds.
