Children's Allergy Action Guide

Give Kids’ Allergies A Time Out

<p>Here are some simple steps you can take to reduce your child's exposure to allergens, both around the house and while outdoors.</p> <p><strong>Cut the Clutter</strong><br /> Knickknacks collect dust and are hard to clean. Store children's toys, games, and stuffed animals in plastic bins to minimize the accumulation of dust and clutter.</p> <p><strong>Dry Laundry Indoors</strong><br /> Hanging laundry outside can attract pollen, causing your child's allergies to act up. To avoid allergens, use a dryer instead.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
