How to Make Your Easter Celebration Egg-cellent and Allergy-free
Spring time is fun time because of the weather, and there are also celebrations here and there. If you’re preparing for Easter, Passover, and other spring activities, do not forget to watch out for asthma and allergy triggers that could affect your plans. Here are some suggestions on how to make your spring and Easter celebrations fun and itch-free.
Watch out for triggers at religious services
During religious services, incense, smoke, and other scents trigger your asthma or allergy symptoms. Find out if your church will use these items during service, or talk to your religious leader in advance to find out if there’s an area where you can particularly sit so as not to get affected by the incense. If there are no other options, you can consider wearing organic cotton masks to protect yourself.
Carry your prescribed allergy and asthma medications at all times
Carrying your asthma or allergy medications prescribed by your doctor is an essential habit as putting on a seatbelt and may save your life. If you leave the house without it, go back and remember to bring two, as you may need two in an emergency. Your child, especially if he or she as asthma or allergy, should see this as great practice and habit, because they will model their own on what they have seen.
Accommodate kids and adults with allergies at parties
To have an egg-cellent Easter party, plan ahead so that kids with food allergy are not excluded. If you can’t find any suitable chocolate products, there are other alternatives and you can even make your own treats. You don’t need to skip egg-related themes because you can always decorate plastic eggs, which can even be filled with allergy-friendly treats for your guests.
If you are going to include face painting in your activities, don’t forget to check ingredients for allergens. On the other hand, if you and your child are going to attend a party, inform the host of your allergies and make sure they know what to do in the event of an emergency.
Dress smart for Easter egg hunts
Going outside after a long winter is good for everyone. It’s a chance to breathe fresh air and get some sun. However for allergy-sufferers, it could be a nightmare. Depending on where you live, or if spring starts early, grass and weed pollen could be around. If you live in an area where there’s a lot of spring rain, mold counts can also be high.
Follow your treatment plan to prevent skin rashes and other allergic reactions. If you’re going outside, wear organic cotton clothing and other eco-friendly products like face masks and gloves, especially if you have sensitive skin, as they are more comfortable and breathable and won’t cause an itch while you’re doing some outdoor activities. When returning home, change clothes, shower, and shampoo your hair to reduce pollen exposure.
Remember that special occasions are about spending it with people you love. The main thing is that no matter what you are doing this Easter or the entire season, enjoy yourself and always think safety first. Happy Easter!
