How bad is avil (pheniramine maleate) syrup for a four month old on almost dailt basis a tsp, using it to treat allergy n echzema.

There can be heart rhythm problems, neurologic effects - it's just not worth the risk even if it is working well for runny nose and eczema. You need to find a good pediatric allergist and find a different regimen of treatment before this med does permanent damage. ...Read more

Can I use anti histamine Fenistil gel (Dimethindene Maleate) for a bite while I'm in very early pregnancy?

No major risk: Most antihistamines are considered safe for pregnancy (Category B) nowadays although I am not familiar with the product you are using. I do not expect any measurable absorption from the topical application of an antihistamine on the skin and thus it would be extremely unlikely that even if a trace of it gets to the fetus. A hydrocortisone cream would work better on an itchy insect bite. ...Read more
