Safety Tips: Allergy Alert

The summer months have come and gone, but this doesn’t mean that danger is going into hibernation. Besides, the pools lidos are still open. Of course, while you’re swimming, remember to stay as safe as possible. No matter what the season, safety should take precedence.

Allergy Alert

Don’t underestimate the dangers and annoyance of allergies. The falling leaves bring their own brand of allergic reactions in adults and children everywhere. For one, pollen can cause runny noses and irritated eyes. The air itself can be hazardous during the autumn months, carrying mould and harmful bacteria. During the modern pandemic, we’re all understandably a bit more worried about cold symptoms than usual. For this reason, extra precautions should be taken.

Sure, kids love to jump into piles of leaves, but dead leaves can hide harmful bacteria and mould. This can be particularly dangerous for children with asthma. During high pollen levels, the best autumn safety advice we can offer is to ask your child to spend more time indoors. Additionally, keep an eye on allergen levels. These can help to prevent potentially dangerous asthma attacks and more.

Stay tuned for our next autumn safety tips, and stay safe!
