( - ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL. (August 2, 2016) - You work hard to keep your child's allergies and asthma under control. You clean to get rid of dust mites and pet dander, and you make sure your kids are taking the right medications at the right time. Then you send them off to school and your routine can fall apart, leaving your child with symptoms that aren't controlled.

"Environmental allergens - things like mold, dust mites and dander from the class pet - can all affect your child's allergies and make their symptoms worse," says allergist Bryan Martin, DO, president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI). "There are also many asthma triggers in the classroom, and uncontrolled asthma accounts for almost 14 million lost school days a year."

But there are things parents can do to help prevent their kids from suffering through allergy and asthma attacks. ACAAI offers the following tips:

If your child is experiencing allergy and asthma symptoms, make an appointment with a board-certified allergist to develop a treatment plan and eliminate symptoms. To locate an allergist in your area, visit
