My 3.5 years old son has severe allergies. Particularly in spring time, swollen eyes, stuffy nose, ichiness allover, rashes on his hands. Solution?

In brief: Depends

Zyrtec is a very good medicine over the counter, can add singulair (montelukast) which you'll need doctor's prescription, and nasal spray, or can have him tested and decrease exposure to whatever he is allergic to, and/or desensitize with allergy treatment.

In brief: See a Immunologist

All of the signs you describe are of allergy that we could suggest some sort of even over the counter treatment.
But the last sign is “rashes on his hand.” that takes the problem one level higher than treatment with anti-allergy medication. So you definitely need to see an immunologist/allergy specialist to find out what is going on. Lab tests should rule out other serious illnesses.

In brief: Xyzal (levocetirizine)

Liquid suspension needs a prescription, but first make sure you see a doctor or allergist.
