Kids Allergic To School?

September 3, 2010, 5:10 PM by Kelli Grant

Kids Allergic To School?
SIOUX FALLS, SD - If your kids aren't back in school yet, they have just a few days left before they're in the classroom. And for some children that may mean their allergies are going to flare up.

If your child tells you they're allergic to school, they may be telling the truth.

Dust mites and mold flourish in schools.  On top of that, chalk dust is airborne. Those allergens can trigger wheezing and asthma. In fact, researchers have noted an increase in asthma symptoms among kids during late September and early October.

“A lot of schools actually aren't air conditioned so there's all the pollens and molds coming in from outside; we have a little bit from inside.  But most schools are really dry and mold is only a small issue there. It's more about what's outside. The chalk and the board type of stuff with our stinky markers are strong irritants that if you're already sick, they make you have more symptoms,” Dr. Mark Bubak with Dakota Allergy and Asthma said.

So parents should watch for a runny nose, watery eyes, coughing, sneezing.  And while those dark circles around your kids' eyes could be caused by a lack of sleep, they also might be pesky allergies.
