My one year old has watery eyes and runny nose, should I give him antihistamines?

My one year old has watery eyes and runny nose, should I give him antihistamines?

Seldom needed: Although used for decades these meds have not been shown to shorten an illness & may increase the thickness of secretions making it harder to cough them out. Many kids felt a little more would help them & self medicated & ended up in emergency rooms. The aap & other groups discourage their use under 6. I have mixed feelings. Saline nasal wash is preferable for younger kids. ...Read more

My son is 9 months old. I think he has some seasional allergies. He is sneezing a lot, red watery eyes, and runny nose and all discharge is clear?

Don't assume allergy: If I blow pepper in your face, you sneeze & drain the same as those with allergy. I find babies have more congestion with scented cleaning products, perfume, smoke & other irritants than they do with animal dander or pollens. The tiny nasal passages that become very noisy with a little mucous or swelling gives many the wrong idea. Thease are not little copies of adult problems, their issues differ. ...Read more

If your symptoms do not improve after another 10 days, you should see your doctor, or sooner if your symptoms get wors ...Read more

Not so fast...: Runny nose is often caused by the tears from the watery eyes draining into it. The cause of the watery eyes has to be treated.

A doctor can help find the cause. ...Read more

My 2 year old granddaughter has a fever along with watery eyes and a runny nose. What should I give her?

Give love and soup!: You don't actually need to give her anything. If her fever is under 104 and she is drinking ok and not complaining of pain, it is really better to let her run the fever to help fight her infection. With the runny nose, there are not alot of great helpful meds for a 2 y/o. As helpful is humidity, fluids (good ole chicken soup) and the cuddle of someone to let her know you are there for her. ...Read more
