Why you need to discuss your child’s allergies with your doctor

They might be little runny noses but they can lead to other concerns. Here’s why kids’ allergies need a spotlight… and the treatment that can help.

Are playground sniffles and itchy eyes and throats a common feature in your household?

If so, you’re far from alone.

Hay fever is one of the most common long-term conditions in Aussie kids aged 0-14.

Research[1] has found allergic rhinitis (aka hay fever) can cause various issues if left untreated.

And these in turn could affect your little ones from participating fully at school or doing the things they love because they’re feeling tired from hay fever symptoms.

Why we need to speak up about allergy symptoms

There’s no doubt about it – allergy symptoms can leave kids, and adults, feeling irritated.

But despite the fact kids suffer hay fever like adults, it can sometimes be difficult for health professionals to differentiate between allergic rhinitis and the common cold in children – making effective communication key in gaining better health outcomes.

So make yourself heard and get advice, so you’re able to make informed decisions on treatment options for your family.
