THIS IS NOT AN ARTICLE but a list of online resources that carry useful information about SEASONAL ALLERGIES IN KIDS. This list should prove useful for parents and guardians:
Healthline provides a good overview of the basics of allergies. It quickly summarizes the symptoms, causes, diagnosis, and treatment for allergies along with a takeaway for the discussion. The page does not have too many hyperlinks. The information is easy to understand, written in simple English. Not too many advertorial graphics or banners that could spoil your reading experience. However, you might not find the detailed analysis you were looking for. Still, worthy of being bookmarked as a handy resource for understanding allergies, and yes, it features at the top of Google search results for this subject. This piece of information has been up and running since 2018 and since it still features impressively at the top end of Google search results, there must be some serious trust that the readers have invested in this information resource. Please save it if you are a parent or a guardian who is taking care of kids with allergies that just don't seem to go away - every chance of more updates appearing on this web page!
Mayoclinic puts highlight on stopping and treating seasonal allergies. It does dwell too much on the reasons for the allergy but instead, this web page is more focused on triggers and types of allergies - highly recommended to folks who are still perhaps trying to identify their allergy patterns and history. A good discussion that combines everything, ranging from home remedies to manage allergy symptoms to common medications. Worth saving and recommending. Very easy-to-understand publishing standards and the clarity of information is worth recommending!
Although this information source usually provides very handy data for such subjects, the information on display here is not the best if you have been searching about ""seasonal allergies in kids"". The information is rather limited and does not explain a lot about how these allergies come about and the different options possible. The page was reviewed and updated about a year ago so it has not aged. It perhaps needs a bit more information to hold on to its spot in Google's search results and to become a trusted source of information about kids' allergies for parents and guardians.
A short discussion that seems like it was drafted by a healthcare specialist or an allergist. There is a YouTube link to a video within the page and the information in the video too is rather good. Not a lot of systematically embedded sub-headings throughout the page like some of the sources quoted above but a good read for sure. I was wondering why did they use the banner image of the outdoors though - is this saying that the outdoor environment is the source of most allergic reactions?
A good discussion that helps you understand the science of allergies rather than merely dwelling on the most common symptoms and over-the-counter medications. This is expected since the data published by NIH is not the usual type of article or blog that you find elsewhere. For instance, the bit about the Nutritional Approach to seasonal allergy might not be found anywhere else!
I was expecting more from Chop.edu since it has been a good source of information about various topics related to health, medication, drugs, lifestyles, and diseases. Surprisingly, it does not talk about the dangers of people overusing and self-using common anti-allergy kids and it does not touch upon things like how some specific allergy meds can interact and the resulting problem could be a big problem for the parents. The bit about eliminating seasonal allergy triggers could be helpful. Negligible levels of advertorial banners or links - very easy on the eyes format and recommended for a quick read.
I am not sure what does MSD Manual for Consumers means but I am guessing it means that the information has been simplified for the untrained, average reader like you and me. You might say that this page talks about Perennial Allergies and not Seasonal Allergies. However, just scan the on-page navigation options on the left-hand side and you will find a clear distinction between the two topics - something that no online information source bothered to do. A great effort to make the information easier to understand for everybody.
There cannot be an instance where the discussion is about a disease or medical condition and Web MD does not contribute - however, this time the information is slightly shorter than our expectations. I would have loved a para explaining if seasonal allergies subside on their own as we age or do childhood allergies persist into adulthood. The platform could have written about how some of the allergic reactions might seem too similar to flu symptoms and how parents should try differentiating between the two.
A surprising information source for me, the Greatist.com really detailed the subject so well. This web page talks about the subject in detail. A few more than anticipated banner ads were created by user tracking systems perhaps but overall, the presentation is good and the information is helpful. There seems to be something wrongly coded at the top of the page where you can see ""tl;dr"" but overall, worth saving and revisiting if you really want to know more about seasonal allergies in kids.
I recommend it more for the video that explains the subject of allergic reactions rather well. Not very sure about the publishing standards here since there is a slider type of method to read the text along with videos and in places, the words seem so densely packed that the readability of the data becomes an issue. This page perhaps needs a better presentation but the information captures it all.
Very handy for understanding unknown and lesser-known allergens and allergy-causing factors at home or work that we tend to miss.
Worth saving and revisiting for parents who are worried about repeated allergies among their kids. The resource links at the bottom are also good and just might take you deeper into the subject.
Only an allergy specialist could have spoken about it - about the problems associated with leaving allergies untreated. This is important for people with recurring and perennial allergies. The information is provided by an institution that seems to have all the diagnostic tools and experience needed to fix allergies and similar problems. The bit about developing mood disorders due to untreated allergies was a big realization and something I can understand.
The information here was enlightening, carrying information about seasonal foods - seasonal changes and hence, seasonal allergies! I am sure not many people will see this connection.
