I wrote this post while participating in a blog tour conducted by Clever Girls Collective on behalf of Children’s Claritin®. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program.

It’s Spring Time and the sun is shining.  The flowers are blooming and beautiful colors are popping up everywhere.  While the change in weather and increase in scenic beauty is found, so are allergies. I get pretty bad allergies and they make me feel so uncomfortable.  I can just imagine how my boys feel when their allergies kick in.  As a mom, I want my boys to be healthy and enjoy life and allergies can hinder that.  Thank goodness there are products like Children’s Claritin that can get them back on track.

What are allergies?  According to Claritin experts, “An ‘allergy’ is a sensitivity of your immune system to something that is ordinarily harmless.  When your body tries to get rid of the ‘allergen’ (foreign substance), you experience symptoms like sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, and a runny, stuffy nose.  Typical allergens include pet dander, pollen, dust mites and mold.  The medical description for allergy symptoms is ‘allergic rhinitis.’ (‘Rhinitis’ comes from the ancient Greek word ‘rhinos’ for nose, and ‘itis’ means inflammation.)”

There are both Outdoor (Seasonal) Allergies and Indoor (Year-Round Allergies).  Claritin experts say the following about Outdoor (Seasonal) Allergies: “‘Seasonal allergic rhinitis’ describes allergies that change with the seasons due to pollen from plants.  For people with seasonal allergies, symptoms come and go with the pollination seasons of certain trees, grasses or weeds.  Pollen levels from these plants can vary day to day, depending upon several factors, including the weather.  High pollen levels can, in turn, affect the severity of symptoms.”  Indoor (Year-Round) Allergies are “‘Perennial (or chronic) rhinitis’ describes allergies that can occur any time of the year, which are caused by substances like dust mites, mold spores, cockroaches or pet dander.'”

I’m glad that there are products like Children’s Claritin that are available for allergies during the Spring, and even all year long.  I use the original Claritin products for my allergies and know that it works.  Claritin is a brand I trust!
