Allergy season brings lots of sneezing and sniffling to many suffering from oversensitivity to substances such as pollen, fungi, molds, or certain foods.
A research that included 500 parents of children with allergies, 500 whose children did not, and 500 doctors who treat children with allergies showed that allergies affect children’s sleep at night and further more behaviour as well as school performance.

In a survey conducted over the telephone, 29% of the parents whose children had allergies reported their children suffering from a lack of sleep in comparison to 12% of parents whose children did not have any problems with allergies.

Waking up sneezing, congestion, blowing noses, and not being able to go back to sleep affect other aspects of children’s lives and create a whole lot of problems.

Forty percent of the parents with children with nasal allergies said the allergy interfered with school performance while only 10 percent of parents whose children did not have allergies had the same educational problems.

Big problems can occur when children don't sleep, they then don't do well in school, aren’t rested, they become hyperactive, their behavior changes and their whole life becomes a mess.

Prescription medicines don’t always work with easing the symptoms. More than half of the children who get prescription medications need to have them changed because they didn't work well enough.
Researches found that prescription antihistamines, nasal sprays, and allergy shots may help those kids with the most severe symptoms, but unfortunately there are no studies showing these relievers would improve kids’ sleeping troubles.

Doctors advise that children playing outside should change their clothes and get a good bath before going to bed to wash off any pollen.
