Children & Back to School Allergies

When September rolls around, it usually means back to school for the kiddos. Back to school also typically means allergy season, high ragweed concentrations, and a mix of allergens all creating a disruption for your little ones and their school routine.

Ellie Merritt interviewed allergist Dr. Summit Shah and gave an inside look at how a few young ladies deal with their allergies in a school setting.
