Can my baby 4 month old take allergy medication as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or claritin?

In brief: Not likely

At 4 months you should not be giving your child allergy meds.
Take him to the pediatrician and see what is going on.

In brief: Bad idea

A 4mo rarely has allergic issues.
It's congestion is a normal response of the airway to inhaled dust, fumes, dry heat, pollen, etc. As well as infection. Airway mucous traps debris particles and works to remove them. Avoid cleaning products with heavy odors, perfumes, and smoke and change ac filters often. A particle filter for baby's room may also help. Medications seldom help.
