Back to school often means back to allergies – are you prepared?

Summer break is waning down and back-to-school season is in full swing. We've prepared for the new season by doing the typical shopping for essentials. You know: school supplies, swanky new outfits, backpack and lunch accessories. We've also made sure to re-stock our medicine cabinet. Thankfully, we don't get sick often, but we do deal with the effects of allergies on a regular basis. My oldest son, Jayden, has seasonal and indoor allergies that sometimes leave him feeling a bit under the weather. With school starting we want to be ready, we absolutely can't have any of that!

With any kind of illness, we take action to nip it in the bud immediately. Since allergies are a recurring condition, it becomes pertinent to treat it effectively. Who wants to feel crummy more often than they have to, right? Whenever Jayden's allergies start bothering him, we give him Children’s Claritin® for relief. One dose provides relief of runny nose, sneezing, itchy, watery eyes and itchy nose and throat for a full 24 hours. Best of all? Children's Claritin is non-drowsy!

Children’s Claritin® is a non-drowsy oral allergy brand. Available in Grape Chewables and Grape Flavored Syrup and Claritin RediTabs, Claritin provides effective relief for children ages 2 and older. We love the convenience of the Grape Chewables. They come in handy during hectic school mornings when measuring liquid is a chore. You never know when or where allergies are going to strike.

Children’s Claritin® has certainly come in handy this summer as we've adventured through lush forests, mingled with lots of animals, and strolled through beautiful botanic gardens. As we prepare for the fast approaching back to school season, we feel at ease knowing that Jayden's allergies can be managed.
