Both my sons have had allergies, my oldest has been able to cope and his have not been as bad as my youngest who just turned one. My oldest seems to just deal with it now, but my youngest seems to be really bad some days. He has the signs, dark circles under the eyes, runny nose, slight coughing; we think its probably dust and maybe seasonal as my wife and I both have that. We have central air in the house, which has been outfitted with a UV light on the air return and I use the allergen filters in the furnace, the vents have been cleaned recently as well and we noticed a sudden flare up of allergy with our youngest for a couple days after.
Are there are good coping strategies we can do with an infant to alleviate his symptoms? With our oldest when we asked about allergies our pediatrician at the time said it was too early to test, so we haven't checked with the youngest. My wife has mentioned floor vent filters, but I'm not sure if they would work. I would invest in a HEPA filter, but they seem expensive and if it won't do much I'd hate to waste the money. Anyone found any solutions that work with infants?
