  • Do not give a child that age anything without consulting a doctor. Certainly NOT over the counter allergy remedies.

  • my son is 10 mo. old now buy at about 8 1/2 mo. our ped. told us to start giving him zyrtec at night before bed. only 2.5 ml
    but we only give him this when he has a flare up, not every night, b/c we saw w/ him that he was getting immuned to it, and not working as well.
    my son has allergies, ezema, and asthma, which is all related,. maybe this idea will help, check w/ your dr. or ped. first,this remedy has done wonders for my son.
