With snow still on the ground it may not seem like it, but allergy season is fast approaching. We do not carry allergy medication in the health clinic. If your child has spring allergies for which he/she takes medications they will need to be taken at home. Now is the time to start them before the pollen levels go up. Benadryl is not an ideal choice for students on school days as it tends to make many children very drowsy. Your child's pediatrician or pharmacist can help you choose an appropriate antihistamine.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have,
