My 3 year old has allergies. Do any of your kids take over the counter meds? The doctor wants to see her and I'm not sure if I should take her in.

For seasonal allergies mine have taken Claritin, Allegra or zertyk since 1 year old. We also do local honey and I just found a homeopathic one called histaminum hydrochloricum. We ritate what over the counter one per year so they don't get immune to it

Just started my 13 month old in Zyrtec and it's helped so much.

We took our kids in because those meds are costly. Our oldest has been on and off 3 types of allergy meds at once. Our youngest is one 2 and he's 4.

All dang night if he's on his back he snores, quickly closes his mouth and grinds his teeth so they make that horrible squeeking sound, and does that over and over. All-night!! He had a mouth guard somewhere, but apparently I have to find it for him like hes one of our kids for him to care to use it 😤
