My children, like me, have allergies. We are blessed to have it in the form of asthma, rhinitis and sinusitis. It was a good thing that the asthma of the children were stopped before they turned 7, thanks to swimming lessons, exercise and cleaner air (we moved to the province for this).
Only one thing remains – allergies in the forms of rhinitis and sinusitis. This we cannot help since we are allergic to pollen, changing weather (don’t we have that a lot lately?) and dust (I try to control it and have a clean house).
We already are aware of the warning signs that allergies are imminent – my kids have been taught to look for symptoms as well. My son, who is 13, stays in a dorm in Manila for his studies so he needs to have his own stock of rhinitis medicines. He has two actually – a steroid spray for bad allergy attacks and Nasoclear, his maintenance spray especially during changing seasons.
What we have learned with dealing with allergies is that we need to be prepared and prevent an attack if possible so it can be better managed. Nasoclear does this for my son. If you have children who suffer from runny nose, occasional sneezing and coughing, watery eyes – allergies might be the problem. A classic sign? Having those symptoms at specific times during the day. My kids usually have attacks in the morning.
Here is how to use Nasoclear:
1. Tilt your head forward and breathe out. Hold the nozzle between your fingers and squeeze.
2. Spray the solution into one nostril while covering the other nostril.
3.Spray 2 times in each nostril in the morning and at night.
