Out of all the things my kids have inherited, the most troublesome has to be their seasonal allergies. Between the sniffing, coughing and sneezing...they are miserable! They never really had them until recently...we moved from Austin, Tx to Corpus Christi, Tx about a year and a half ago and they started up then...I use to use Benedryl, but it knocks them out [sounds great i know..but its not]. My 2 year old uses the liquid and my 6 and 9 year olds use the chewable. They love the taste, and feel much better, which is great for all of us!

With allergies peaking across the country over the next few weeks, here are a few tips to help keep your children doing what they love to do, indoors and out:Here is a Coupon if you want to try it yourself
- Give your child Children’s Claritin® on days when seasonal allergy symptoms arise, as it’s the #1 Pediatrician Recommended Non-Drowsy Allergy Brand
- Keep windows closed — because pollen is carried by the wind, it’s in the air everywhere
- Have your child bathe and change clothes after playing outdoors — outside allergens and pollen can collect on the skin, hair and clothing
- Discuss your child’s condition with the school nurse, teachers and coaches

The Claritin® Allergen Guide: Tree Pollen Edition
Outdoor allergens like seasonal pollens and molds can be difficult to manage because it seems like they're everywhere and you can't escape them. Many of them occur at the time you want to be able to enjoy the outdoors, too- like right now! Here's a closer look at a common culprit, tree pollen. Knowing what to look for can help you steer clear of these notorious allergy triggers:
When it comes to trees, the real allergy troublemakers are hardwood deciduous trees — oak, elm, birch, maple, ash, alder and hazel:
- These trees generally pollinate from February to April or May.
- In the South, these trees begin pollinating as early as January; in the North, they begin in April.
- People show cross-reactivity to trees in the beech, birch, alder and oak family, and in the juniper and cedar family. This means that if you're allergic to one type of tree, you're likely allergic to others in the same family.
- If you're looking to plant trees on your property, look for species that do not aggravate allergies, such as catalpa, crepe myrtle, dogwood, fig, fir, palm, pear, plum, redbud and redwood trees.
