A few weeks ago, my younger son was having trouble with itchy eyes. At first I thought it was Pink Eye, and I started him on eye-drops to take away the redness. A few days later, we saw no improvements. As a matter of fact, his face was puffy and his eyes were getting worse.
The school called and thought he might have allergies. The next day he woke up with his eyes swollen shut, and we knew he was struggling with something. We went to the pediatrician and she confirmed he was suffering from fairly severe allergies.
We started him on a daily medication, but we will have to wait to see what is causing the trouble. Getting an appointment with a specialist is about as fun as sticking needles in my eyes. But living in Pennsylvania, we're near plenty of farms and animals we've never been near before. I'm fairly certain he is going to struggle every spring with whatever he is allergic to.
Along with allergy medicine, we installed a FRAM Fresh Breeze® cabin air filter to keep the air inside our car fresher for our kids. I never knew that the air inside my car is up to 6x dirtier than the air outside. We are constantly in the car, and to think of that dirty air circulating gives me a headache.
Since installing the FRAM® cabin air filter, the car is fresher and I'm reassured that it is removing up to 98% of dust, dirt and allergens. I know I'm making every ride in the car a healthier one for my kids, and my little allergy sufferer will be suffering less. The Fresh Breeze cabin air filter even has baking soda to remove odors, which is a huge bonus when you have kids constantly in and out of the car.
Have you ever smelled a twelve year old's baseball cleats? Or a gymnast's duffle? Disgusto.
The FRAM Fresh Breeze cabin air filter is super easy to install, and the step by step installation guides are tailored to different makes and models. Trust me when I say if we could get an air filter installed, anyone can. It took us a few minutes using the installation guide, and now we're loving the fresh air inside the mommy-van. We're riding, and resting happily.
