    spores can hitch a ride on your little one’s shoes, clothing and hair and get tracked inside. After spending time outdoors, have your child take off their shoes, change their clothes and take a quick bath to remove pollen.
     
  • CLEAR THE AIR
    When driving, keep windows up and set the air conditioner on “recirculate”. At home, keep windows closed, use air conditioning and be sure to change your filters often.
     
  • TAKE COUNT
    Pollen levels change often. And when they do, so can your child’s symptoms.

    -friendly yard for your kids to play in. Some common types of grass produce more pollen spores, including Timothy, Johnson, Bermuda, blue, orchard and sweet vernal grasses. Instead, try planting the female version of buffalo grass as it produces little to no pollen. If you’re planting trees, stick with species, such as lilly pilly, willow myrtle, coastal banksia, citrus or scribbly gum. Avoid planting sunflowers, daisies and chrysanthemums in your yard as they’re all related to ragweed. If you’re not sure what to plant, ask your local garden centre before you buy.
     
  • BE PREPARED
    Be sure to keep allergy medicine for kids on hand for when seasonal allergy symptoms strike. Children’s Claratyne® Syrups are easy-to-administer for children from 12 months old while Children’s Claratyne® Chewables are easy-to-take tablets without water for children from 2 years of age.

symptoms. Outdoors, moulds thrive in shady, damp areas, including soil, plants, rotting wood, compost piles or dead leaves.

Since mould thrives in damp spaces, your child’s mould allergy symptoms may be more common during the summer months when it’s hot and humid. Although, they may be prevalent year-round in warmer climates. While pollen spores die during the winter months, mould spores simply go dormant during that time. And when spring comes, the spores grow back.

Tips for Kids with Mould Allergies

  • LEAVE IT OUTSIDE

It’s also a good idea to have your child bathe after playing outdoors. If you’re pinched for time, at least have them wash their hands and face well after coming in.

    MOVE

    To help reduce the number of mould spores from the yard that can enter your home, keep leaves, grass and yard clippings away from the house. You can also try to cut back any trees and/or brush that are close to the house.
     
  • SKIP THE LINE
    Bedding or clothing hung out to dry on a clothes line may pick up mould spores. If possible, dry your clothes inside or use a dryer instead.
