Doctor to evaluate: An infant who has "choking" symptoms needs a doctor's evaluation. Loratadine (Claritin) is an over-the-conter allergy medication and is approved for older kids, which means using it in infants may or may not have the desired effects (should be working closely with one's doctor).
