Safeguards for Children with Dust Allergies — From the makers of ZYRTEC®
If your kids have dust allergies, it’s not
the dust itself that’s causing the problem. It’s the allergy triggers found in the dust
— including pet dander, mold spores, and dust mites. Thankfully, there are a number
of safeguards that can help reduce your child’s exposure – starting with regular housekeeping.
Damp dust at least weekly, or more frequently if you notice dust accumulating. Let dust
settle before you vacuum, to help capture more allergens. And avoid clutter, especially
in kids’ bedrooms. Keep their clothes in drawers or closed closets, and store toys
and books in cupboards or containers with lids. You can also minimize dust by keeping
on top of your home’s air quality. Change heating, ventilation and air conditioner filters
regularly. If you have high indoor humidity, use a dehumidifier to help prevent mold and
mildew growth. Finally, explain the allergies to your child in understandable, age-appropriate
terms. Discuss conditions and environments to avoid. With these simple safeguards, you
and your child can leave those allergy symptoms in the dust. Try Zytrec tablets. They relieve
allergy symptoms. For adults and kids, six years and older.
