6.25mg every 4-6 hrs: The typical dose of benadryl/diphenhydramine in 2-4 year olds is 6.25 mg orally every 4-6 hours for allergy symptoms. Benadryl is typically sold in liquid form as 12.5mg per teaspoon, so you would administer one-half teaspoon to get the 6.25 mg dose. Be sure to contact your physician if symptoms persist or if she begins to cough, have a fever, or anything else that concerns you.

A couple of choices: You could change his antihistamine to zyrtec/cetirizine - instead of Claritin - as some people respond differently to each type. Addition of singulair (montelukast) by your physician is also worth considering. Depending on his age, inhaled nasal steroids may be of value, but are not typically used in children.

Depends: A minor tear in the muscle itself requires only rest to heal. Antiinflammatory medications like Ibuprofen can be used for discomfort. Conversely a major tear or a tear in the biceps tendon may require surgical correction. To determine the type and severity of your tear, a physician should see and evaluate you.
