Having grown up in Manhattan, she appreciates the fresh air of the Catskills – and also understands the side-effects; her expertise in allergies and asthma are put to good use. In addition, her interest in adolescent health and dermatology – and the experience of raising four children – have been invaluable in dealing with the tween-to-teen set. That's why Dr. Tzagoloff loves The Children's Medical Group. CMG is all about kids, and all our staff members excel at what they do.

But, there's no reason to remain indoors in beautiful weather, say experts. "One over-looked approach towards feeling well lies in preven- tion," says Lisa Metzger, PhD. With that in mind, Metzger offers these allergy-fighting tips: Get exercise. It may sound coun- terintuitive to go outside if you suffer from airborne allergies, but moderate exercise is known to strengthen the body's immune response. Wash up. Use baby shampoo to wash your face and eye area in the shower. Baby shampoo is a safe alter- native to wash away the dirt, sweat and symptoms of allergy season. Limit dairy. Dairy causes the cre- ation of phlegm, which can increase the intensity of allergy symptoms. Change your diet. Incorporate nat- ural antihistamines into your meals. Look for foods that contain flavo- noids, such as tomatoes and blueber- ries, as well as Vitamin A found in green leafy vegetables and squash. Article provided by State Point
