Show Notes

The weather is warming up and kids want to spend more time outdoors.  Along with the beauty of spring, come seasonal allergies. Tree pollen, grass pollen, weeds, mold, and more will all meet your little ones outside. Dr. Matthew Bell, Pediatric Allergy/Immunology, joins us to share his tips on minimizing the effects of seasonal allergies in kids with and without using medicine. We discuss what symptoms to look for in seasonal allergies. He gives an in depth review of which allergy medications work best for each symptom, and tells us one medication to throw in the trash immediately.
