Seasonal allergy can really affect your kids day. While you can't always be there for your child, proactive planning can set your kid up for success at school and give your kids hayfever relief.
RHINOCORT® Hayfever is not to be used by children under 12 years of age.
Get to know seasonal allergy triggers
If your kid suffers from outdoor allergies, learn what allergens are affecting them so you can plan ahead. If it's autumn and there's a lot of ragweed near the playground or sport fields, point it out so your child will be aware and steer clear. You can also look online for daily pollen forecasts and information about predominant pollens in your area, to help your child prepare in advance each day.
TREATING HAYFEVER ALLERGIES BEFORE GOING TO SCHOOL
With regular and consistent treatment with RHINOCORT® in the morning, your kid can get relief from their nasal symptoms instead of suffering through their school day. Talk to your doctor before starting your child on any allergy medication, and get their recommendation on how to treat.
NOT TO BE USED BY CHILDREN UNDER 12 YEARS OF AGE. See your pharmacist if symptoms are not relieved within 7 days. Do not use for more than 6 months without the advice of your doctor or pharmacist. Refer to product leaflet for more information.
Communicate with your child's school
Talk to your kid's teachers, sport coaches and even principal about your child's needs. You can ask questions to learn more about your school's policies on handling allergies. Make sure your child's medical records at school are up to date so they know what allergens your child might be sensitive to.
Empower your child
Encourage your child to talk about how their allergies affect them at school. And also let them know it's OK for them to talk to their teachers if their allergies are really bothering them. The more they talk about their symptoms, the easier it is to figure out what's going on, so they can get the relief they need.
