Spring is in the air and so are the spring allergies, literally. With the warm weather almost here, which we are all so much looking forward to, from weeds to spores to grass and tree pollens, airborne allergen levels are through the roof, unfortunately – nothing is perfect, right?  This means that allergy symptoms (sniffling, sneezing, and itchy eyes) are in overdrive, and you may want to find out exactly what you, your family or kids are allergic to so that you can treat it properly.

According to WebMD, the best method to what spring allergies you and your family are allergic to is the allergy skin test.  The allergy skin test is the quickest, most expensive, and most accurate way to find out what you are allergic to. Your best bet is to talk to your primary care doctor or an allergist to get the allergy test.  The skin test is easy to do.  The skin is pricked slightly to allow an allergen to enter the outer layer; after 15 to 20 minutes, the doctor will check for a reaction, which will identify the specific allergen causing your symptoms.

Once you know the trigger, it will be easier for you to manage yours or your family’s allergy with the right medicine, or just avoiding the trigger as much as possible.

There’s a world of Spring allergens out there, so if you or your family suffer from allergies, you will be better off knowing what you are allergic to manage it wisely and enjoy the spring season better.

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED.
