  • You can look up herbal remedies or you can do children's benedryl. They have children's allergy medications or you can find something herbal online.

  • My DD had allergies to she is 4 and they have her on zertec that was before it was over the counter. They have it over the counter now so we buy it but she takes 1 teaspoon every night at bedtime through allergy season. It works for my DD. It may cause drawsiness so that is why they told me to give it to her at bedtime

  • Zyrtec is safe for children that are as young as 6 son has been on it since he was 1 and it helps tremendously. You can double check with your ped if you want but it's OTC now.

  • My son and I both live on Zyrtec D all through allergy season. There is a Zyrtec that is for kids and it is a syrup. i believe it is for kids as young as 6 months old. I would suggest giving it at bedtime because it can cause drowsiness.
