How safe is hydroxyzine for toddlers? Are allergic reactions rare? Needed to treat anxiety prior to dental work.

In brief: No problem

I have used it in toddlers for itching since it has less sedation than many other products.
I've prescribed it for decades without problems.

In brief: Used a lot

It has certainly been used a lot for itching over the years.
Having an allergic reaction to it almost unheard of. Some dentists have a gift handling kids.
