  • infant benadryl it's for allergies, you can buy it at any pharmacy

  • She is old enough to give her some benadryl. The dosage is on the back of the bottle. Anything else and I would call the doctor and talk to the nurse.

  • I agree, benadryl is the way to go even if it's a cold instead of allergies, it still treats the same symptoms.

  • Call the doctor; he/she will tell you what to give and the dosage.

  • zyrtek works great, but like previous poster, you'd need to call the doc to get the exact dosage. The ENT recommended to dry up my dd ears.

  • Benadryl is great, just tell your pharmascist how much she weighs to get a dosage. (its more accurate than age)

  • My daughter has the same allergy symptoms.Call the doctor,they can give you the right dosage for her weight and individual medical condition.Plus you should probably have her checked out to be 100% certain it is allergies.
