What is harmful about giving children < 2 allegra (fexofenadine)? My 10 mth old has had a constant runny nose with sneezing for 5 weeks. My 4 y/o has allergies also.

What is harmful about giving children < 2 allegra (fexofenadine)? My 10 mth old has had a constant runny nose with sneezing for 5 weeks. My 4 y/o has allergies also.

I would use > 6m: I find this helpful in many kids & use it over 6m of age. However, most congestion/sneezing in infants & toddlers is related to illness or nasal irritants like smoke, fragrance, fumes & the like & the primary rx is avoidance. Antihistamines have no effect when used for drainage triggered by irritants. ...Read more

Constantly sneezing and runny nose (clear and watery). Have been taking my anti-allergy meds, but symptoms persist. What could it be? No fever.

Allergies likely: Sounds like fairly typical allergy symptoms. A cold (uri) and allergy can be very similar, but a cold lasts 5-7 days and you feel more sick. Allergies last much longer, like for an entire season, or year round. You don't feel quite as ill with allergies. You may need to see your doctor for assistance because there are many other allergy medications that can treat your symptoms. ...Read more

Taking allegra (fexofenadine) d 12hr on advice since a week for constant sneezing and stuffy/runny nose. My period was due on 22 and its 27 now. Should I stop using?

Taking allegra (fexofenadine) d 12hr on advice since a week for constant sneezing and stuffy/runny nose. My period was due on 22 and its 27 now. Should I stop using?

Allegra-D: There are no warnings or descriptions discussing amenorrhea and allegra-d. The best way to know would be to stop it altogether and see if your cycle starts up. Another option would be to use the Allegra (fexofenadine) component alone and then the sudafed component alone to see if it is one of those separately. ...Read more

My son is 3 months old and has been sick for a little over a week now. His symptoms include sneezing, sniffling, runny nose, and bloody mucous. He also doesn't sleep as much anymore and is constantly biting/sucking on his fingers.

Bloody mucous: Please bring him to your pediatrician ASAP. Bloody mucous is unusual in a 3 month old, although a humidifier may help if it is dry mucous membranes. If running a fever, be seen tonight at urgent care for this little one who is more susceptible to infections right now. An antibiotic may be needed and a doctor needs to look at the bloody mucous. A bean in the nostril would take another child/person. ...Read more
