My 4 year old takes zyrtec 1 tsp and singulair 4mg every night. She got a couple mosquito bites yesterday and they are swollen. Can she have a dose of benadryl also tonight? Her left eye has also been watering for several days even with both allergy meds.

My 4 year old takes zyrtec 1 tsp and singulair 4mg every night. She got a couple mosquito bites yesterday and they are swollen. Can she have a dose of benadryl also tonight? Her left eye has also been watering for several days even with both allergy meds.

No: Eye lashes, like hair everywhere else on the body, have a particular growth cycle. When they fall out, they tend to get caught by your other lashes or drop onto your face.
