Over Reactive? Have no fear!
You don't have to put your child in a plastic bubble when you find out about his or her allergies. While it is normal for parents to want to protect their child from harm, overreacting to their allergies - whether it's a food, environmental or contact allergy - is not the answer.
Also, with allergy season approaching, it is key to know the difference between an allergy and a cold. Learn about the differences that can help you tell one from the other.
Plus, check out these at-home remedies to help avoid allergens and important questions to ask your child's doctor.
