Seasonal Allergies Not So Seasonal Anymore

According to Powell Pediatrics, seasonal allergies are no longer seasonal, and now that the kids are going back to school, much earlier than their parents did there are some seasonal allergy triggers to be aware of now that class is back in session.

Your entire family can suffer from seasonal allergies. Anything from firing up the grill to mowing the lawn can cause coughing, sneezing and wheezing. Even dramatic temperature fluctuations can trigger asthma. Think before you or anyone in your family jumps into a cold lake, pool, or river, ease yourself in. This gives your lungs a chance to adjust. In addition, chlorine odors can irritate the lungs causing respiratory issues as the smell is from bacteria breakdown.
