Antihistamines and mast cell stabilizers block the histamine causing lots of their symptoms.
Some medications are approved for babies and toddlers. Others only from a certain age. Talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist and always read the information leaflet very carefully.
1. Allergy medications for a blocked, stuffy or itchy nose
There are corticosteroid nasal sprays and antihistamine nasal sprays for kids. You can also get the two medications combined. And mast cell stabilizers also come in a nasal spray. Children can use decongestants but, like grown-ups, not for more than a few days.
2. Allergy relief for teary red eyes
There are different options here too. Children can use antihistamine or mast cell stabilizer eye drops. There are also drops combining the two treatments. You may need to treat your child’s eyes several times a day.
