What to Do if Your Child is a Hay Fever ‘Early-Starter’

With an estimated 30% of children suffering with hay fever in the UK, a good proportion will be ‘early-starters’. Their season starts in February or March when lots of trees release their pollen into the air.

“Stopping the pollen getting in to your child’s body is a good strategy for dealing with symptoms,” says Max. “If it’s not in their body, they can’t react to it! There are several things you can do to reduce their exposure to pollen.”

“Use an organic drug free allergen barrier balm such as HayMax Kids (www.haymax.biz), which can be applied to the nostrils and bones of the eyes in the morning and throughout the day. It has been proven to trap over a third of pollen particles before they enter the body* where they can cause symptoms.”

“Buy some wraparound sunglasses for your child to wear when outdoors to prevent pollen particles coming in contact with their eyes. Tie their hair up and ask them to wear a hat or cap when outside to prevent pollen particles being caught in their hair.”

“Close windows and doors to prevent pollen blowing into your home. Consider using an air filter/purifier with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Arresting) filter to capture the pollen. Vacuum the house regularly (especially beds and fabrics) to remove pollen particles and damp dust surfaces to remove dust and prevent it being dispersed back into the air.”

“If you own a pet then ensure that it is well groomed and shampooed as much as possible to remove pet allergens and pollen particles.”

“Ensure your child showers or takes a bath at night before sleeping to remove pollen particles and pet hair from their hair and body. This will also help them get a good night’s sleep and feel less sluggish the next day.”
