Anybody else's kid have allergies?

My son's allergies have been acting up lately, at least I'm pretty sure it's allergies. I've been giving him benadryl but that doesn't seem to help much. Anything else I can give him? Preferably, natural solutions. I've heard about citrus juice and he's been drinking some, but no change. Any suggestions.

  • Ask your pediatrician about claritin or zyrtec. They are not so natural, but they are effective. Mine have allergies too!

  • i give my son claritin, its not natural but it works better than benadryl for him. There is also some drug free cream that goes around their nose you can buy at walmart. Its either made by claritin or zyrtec I cant remember. I bought some for my son but I havent used it yet.
