Depends: Many children's medication preparations have antihistamines, which is the active ingredient in the allergy medicines. So, you have to be careful- i would ask your pediatrician about the exact preparation you plan to use and the reason for the use.

Is my childs coughing related to heart burn? He does not have any breathing problems

Possibly: Coughing is a symptom and not a condition, therefore there are many possible causes. Heart burn (also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease or gerd) is a possible cause, especially if there are no breathing problems. Other causes include upper respiratory infections, allergies and asthma. Mild asthma can present as a cough without respiratory distress.

Antihistamine: While lubricating drops help some, antihistamines drops do the most for eye allergy symptoms, including itching & watering. There are many over-the-counter antihistamine products to choose from. Older products may be combined with decongestants which decrease redness; however, overuse of these products may cause increased rebound redness. Plain antihistamine drops are your best bet for itching.
