What is Benadryl Liquid for Children

Benadryl Liquid for Children is a hay fever and allergy remedy that can be used in children aged 2 and up. It’s perfect for little ones who find that their allergies get worse during hay fever season, or react when they come into contact with pet fur or dust. This delicious banana flavoured formula is ideal for fussy kids who don’t like the flavour of other medicines, or for those who don’t like to take tablets.

Why your child has allergies

Your child has allergies because they’re sensitive common substances they can come into contact with during the day. For example, they may be allergic to pet fur, dust, or plant pollen, which causes hay fever. When they come into contact with one of these irritants, they’ll experience uncomfortable symptoms of an allergic reaction, with some of the most common symptoms including:

  • Sneezing
  • A blocked or runny nose
  • Red, watery eyes
  • Itchy eyes, ears, nose, or throat
  • Coughs
  • An itchy skin rash

How liquid Benadryl relieve my child’s hay fever or allergies

Every ml of Benadryl for Children contains 1mg of cetirizine, which is an antihistamine. Antihistamines are an allergy treatment which block the histamine released in your body during an allergic reaction. This prevents it from causing your child’s allergy symptoms, effectively tackling their cause to both relieve and prevent sneezing, itching, a runny nose, and more.

Can I give this to my child if they’re taking other medication

If your child is taking any other medication, including herbal remedies or medicines you bought for them without a prescription, you should speak to your doctor or our pharmacist before giving them Benadryl liquid. Some medications can interact when used together, causing unwanted symptoms or making your medication less effective. A medical professional will be able to make sure that their medicines are safe to take together.
