Panadol Allergy In Children
Panadol allergy: Panadol (Acetaminophen) can treat pain & reduce fever. An allergy occurs when your body’s immune system creates antibodies to a foreign substance causing a reaction that can be mild to severe.

My LO is 8 mo. 20 lbs. I gave her infant Tylenol (acetaminophen). She has a thick runny nose and watery eyes (allergies) can I also give her children's benadryl?
Benedryl indication: Although the manufacturer does not indicate it's use in children under 2 years of age, it is not uncommon for it to be recommended 'off label' by pediatricians. Oral cetrizine is another antihistamine for allergies which does have a documented age indication for 6 months and up. Both of these medications can be safely administered with Tylenol (acetaminophen). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unlikely: Allergic reactions to Acetaminophen (apap) occur in less than 1% of cases and symptoms are typical for allergic reaction, such as causing itchy, red rash/hives or anaphylaxis (allergic reaction affecting several organ systems). Pain in abdomen or extremity can be caused by apap in 1-10% of users, mechanism unknown. More likely, pain increase in area being treated is due to lack of effect by apap. ...Read more
Possibly, see below: It's always hard to tell with these combination products. The best thing to do is to look at the active ingredient list side-by-side. They're usually good at telling you what each ingredient does (cough suppressant, antihistamine, etc.). If two of the same ingredient are in each product - for example, two antihistamines - and especially if both products contain acetaminophen, do *not* take both. ...Read more
Sure: Tylenol (acetaminophen) pm contains tylenol (acetaminophen) which may not be needed to get to sleep or allergies but probably isn't harmful unless using other tylenol (acetaminophen) throughout the day. Diphenhydramine (main ingredient in many of the medications) makes people very sleep, particularly wen not used everyday so as far as overall allergy medication, as long as not having hangover in day can be quite effective. ...Read more
No relationship: Advil (ibuprofen) allergy is relatively common; tylenol (acetaminophen) allergy is rare. These two drugs are chemically unrelated so you can't be allergic to both. Also taking both drugs on the same day does not increase your chance of a reaction to one or the other. Stop taking Ibuprofen & use only Acetaminophen until you see a board-certified allergist for the correct diagnosis. ...Read more
Yes: Both meds can be given concurrently. They do not interfere with each other. ...Read more

Possible: Viral illnesses such as the flu are treated best by rest, increasing fluids (including "mom's chicken soup"), and supportive measures that can treat the symptoms. Tylenol (acetaminophen) allergy relief certainly can treat some of the symptoms that a cold or the flu can cause. Best wishes. ...Read more
Codeine allergy need to know. I had itching from morphine but ok so far with tylenol (acetaminophen) 3?
If I have taken both Lortab and Tylenol (acetaminophen) with no allergy symptoms should Tramadol be ok? I have many allergies and want to be safe.
Can't predict: Tramadol allergy is rare but there is no way to predict whether you would have an adverse reaction from taking it. Many of the adverse reactions to drugs are not due to allergy. ...Read more
I've had allergy symptoms for a week now and have been taking tylenol (acetaminophen) but the past 2 days I've been having night sweats from the waist down . Why ?
Wrong medication: Tylenol (acetaminophen) is good for headache, fever, aches and pains but is ineffective for allergy symptoms. I have no idea why you are sweating only from the waist down. Sweating is not a symptom of allergy. I suggest that you discuss your symptoms with your health care provider. ...Read more
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
