Sneezing, coughing, runny nose, itching eyes are all symptoms of allergies.  Ragweed pollen counts are very high.  Over the counter medications can help reduce the symptoms of seasonal allergies.  These medications can be obtained without a medical prescription.  Of course, if your child is running fever or symptoms persist, consult your child's medical doctor.  Antihistamines such as Zyrtec and Claritin will help eliminate seasonal allergy symptoms.
    Fall is a beautiful time of the year but thanks to ragweed, it can also be a miserable time of the year.  Medications, sleeping with windows closed, and keeping an eye on pollen counts can help make your child feel better.
