Spring Allergy Relief For Kids

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by the makers of REACTINE®. Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Don’t you just love this time of year? After months of Canadian winter we can finally open some windows to hear the birds and feel a somewhat warm breeze on our skin and … Sniff. Sneeze. Cough.

As much as I embrace this time of year, the season embraces me back that’s for sure – with watery and itchy eyes, sneezing and an overall feeling of stuffiness. Yet, it’s spring and those windows are staying open, which means the neighbours will be able to count my sneezes along with me. 

Seasonal allergies hit me as soon as the snow starts melting, all that snow mold fills the air and makes its way to me. Then the trees start budding, and the flowers and grass grow – this time of year is such a bittersweet season that can’t be completely without fault. Despite any song the birds may sing in the morning. 

Yet, I’m not the only one that suffers through spring allergies, did you know that children of parents who are both allergy sufferers have a 70% chance of suffering from allergies? If one parent has allergies, the child then has a 50% chance of suffering too. Plus, more than one quarter of Canadians experience seasonal allergies. Tissue anyone?

Spring Allergy Relief for Kids

So, recently when I noticed that my daughter was more tired than usual and sniffling a lot – I wasn’t quick to assume she had a cold. With allergies being the third most common chronic condition among children under the age of 18, it’s not surprising that many mistake allergy symptoms for colds.

Since her symptoms matched my own, I knew that seasonal allergies were starting for her as well {insert synchronized sneezing here}. To complicate the issue even more, *allergies lower the immune system and can make way for sinus infections, sore throats, and earaches. [*source]

While it’s great to reduce allergens as much as possible {such as dust in the house}, it’s very hard to do when you literally are surrounded by a world of it. For kids, this is the time of year when they really want to play outside, and fter a long winter indoors – are we parents going to protest? Nope! 

For kids aged 2-12, REACTINE® Children’s Liquid is now back in delicious grape flavour, and is a great option for seasonal allergy relief. This easy-to-take liquid starts working on allergy symptoms quickly, providing long-lasting relief for up to 24 hours and does not cause drowsiness.

Do your kids suffer from allergies in the spring season?



  1. My son was born with severe allergies. He was put on antihistamine at the age of 3.

  2. My brother has terrible allergies but my husband and I don’t. We’re trying to figure out if our child does have allergies he does seem to sneeze a lot itchy eyes so I need to get this checked. Thanks for this post I need to try this allergy medication with him.

  3. Yuck! Spring allergies totally stink! I’m glad there is something like Reactine to help out with the symptoms. I hope both of you feel better soon!

  4. Oh my goodness, all three of my littles have horrible allergies. They have tried many brands and have yet to find something that works. I may have to give this a try for them. Thanks so much for sharing.

  5. I’d never heard of Reactine until just now. Yesterday we were searching the aisles for something less harsh but still helpful. Thanks!

  6. Allergies can be such a pain. I think that my youngest might possibly have allergies. She’s got eczema, which is one of the reasons I think she may have allergies as well. This product sounds like it would work great for her.

  7. This is great information to know! I’m not sure if my daughter will have allergies, but it sounds like this medicine works wonders.

  8. My Daughter suffers from spring time allergies. We like to use Reactine NaturEase for congestion. I am hoping now that she is a teenager they will get a little better.

  9. Springtime is so hard. I love spring. My kids want to be outside daily but they have such terrible allergies. It is bittersweet. This is the first year we are trying nasal spray with my 6 & 8 year olds so it will be interesting.

  10. I hadn’t heard of this brand, but my poor little niece has BAD Spring allergies. I’ll definitely tell my sister to get this stuff! I am sure it will help a lot!

  11. My husband has the worst seasonal allergies, and they are always turning into colds, sore throats, sinus infections. I’ll have to see if he wants to try this.
    Luckily for us, the kids don’t seem to be nearly as affected.

  12. The husband suffers from spring allergies. It’s always tough. The kids will too I bet when they get older. I’ll have to check out REACTINE.
