LINKS BY TOPIC

Allergies and Asthma:

Spring is in full bloom! The trees and flowers are blossoming and lawnmowers are buzzing over fresh cut grass. After months of being cooped up, kids are enjoying the outdoors.

Along with that comes the sniffles, sneezes and itchy, watery eyes. Asthma and allergies are the most common chronic childhood diseases. Asthma affects nearly four million American children, while allergies affect about 40 million. It's important for parents to identify what allergens or irritants trigger an allergy or asthma attack. Allergens can include pollen, dust mites, mold, pet dander, or food. Irritants can include tobacco smoke, room deodorizers, cleaning products, or candles. Asthma attacks can even be caused by exercise, infections, or emotions like being anxious or scared. If not controlled, allergies and asthma can cause children to miss school, lower their progress, and not be involved in sports or other extra curricular activities. It's important children get their allergy or asthma triggers under control so they can lead productive lives.

Here are a variety of resources to help children of all ages manage their symptoms.
