Allergies what to do

Both of my boys have allergies and i give them Benedryl which by the doctor is what i am supose to do. Last year my eldest son(now 2 1/2) went in to the er because his eyes swelled shut. Clariten didnt work that is how i found that he could use bendryl well my youngest ( now 15 months) we found out had a reaction to sunblock so he could use bendryl. my boys love it outside and in michigan the pollon and everything sucks butt for allergies, anyways my youngest is constantly having a runny nose with sneezing and rubbing eyes with the bendryl in his system. my question/concern is is there anything else i can do so he can enjoy playing outside with his brothers?

  • HONEY!!!!!! u can give them honey look up natural remedies, ive heard alot about it, hopefully theres no allergy w that. I think its something like a tablespoon a day. I would give it a week and see if it helps. Its alot better for him than that horrible meds that the drs give that makes them sleepy those drs are just a business anyways
