What is good for seasonal allergies and itching eyes?

What is good for seasonal allergies and itching eyes?

Trial and error.: There are a number of meds out there for seasonal allergies. There's otc allegra, zyrtek and Claritin (and their generics). These are non-sedating antihistamines.

Can 10 month old baby have seasonal allergies ? Always rubbing nose and eyes.. Eyes are red...Running nose clear ....

Yes: It is not very common, but i see a few new babies every different allergy season that have the classic symptoms you are describing.
