Frequently Asked Questions

It is a medicine used for the relief of symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis such as sneezing, runny, itchy nose; and itchy, watery eyes, allergic conjunctivitis, and skin symptoms of allergy such as itch and rash.

Your kids may have allergies if he/ she regularly experience any of the following:

  • sneezing-sniffing-scratching
  • itchy and watery eyes
  • rashes or red patches on skin
  • dry skin
  • facial swelling
  • coughing/ trouble sleeping due to symptoms
  • For severe cases, anaphylaxis or tightening of airways

 

A kid’s allergy is caused by an overactive immune system, when your child’s body mistake harmless things––like dust, pollen, and other allergens­­––for germs, and attack them. The most common type of allergy is allergic rhinitis. The main triggers of it are dust mites, animal fur, pollen (tree, grass, or flowers), molds, cockroach droppings, and tobacco smoke.

Colds and allergies have different causes. Your child can catch a cold when a virus gets into his body or simply when someone sick sneezes, coughs, or shakes hands with him.

Though colds can last for 7 to 10 days, recovery from it is usually quick. But with allergies, symptoms can last for several weeks or even months.

It can be given once-a-day, preferably at night before your child goes to sleep.
