Spring is definitely in the air. No, I'm not talking about butterflies and sunshine, I'm talking about pollen. The pollen count in our area must be extra-high this year, because allergies have hit my family extra-hard. Usually it's just Alfie who's sniffling, but this year it's all of us. My eyes are constantly itchy, 3Po is getting hives, and The Pea has a constantly runny nose and itchy throat. What a drag!
To combat our allergies, I usually rely on medicines with diphenhydramine, but it makes us so sleepy, it's really only good to use at night. There are so many kinds of allergy medicines and it's difficult to figure out which ones are safe for kids! Fortunately there's new PediaCare 24-Hour Allergy medicine.
Here's more information about PediaCare's new Allergy medicine:
Itchy, runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes and itchy throat – we all know the symptoms that can make our children miserable from allergies. And just in the nick of time as we approach the peak allergy season, PediaCare®, a trusted brand of children’s non-prescription medicines for the past quarter of a century, just introduced new one-dose per day, Children’s PediaCare® 24 Hour Allergy. As common as allergies are, many parents are still confused about which over-the-counter allergy products are safe for their young children. Specially formulated for children, just one dose of new Children’s PediaCare® 24 Hour Allergy with cetirizine hydrochloride, provides all day relief from indoor and outdoor allergy symptoms. No more worrying about redosing during the day, it’s dye free and it’s a flavor that kids love – grape!
New Children’s PediaCare® 24 Hour Allergy is available in a four ounce bottle for $11.99 at drugstores, supermarkets and retailers nationwide.
And don't forget, if you're unsure about which over the counter medicines to purchase, you can go to the PediaCare website to check your child's symptoms and match them with the right PediaCare product. They even have a free iPhone app you can download to help you choose the best product for your child. It's not a diagnostic tool, but it has lots of information to help you with your decision. And once you've bought the product, it's so helpful to have the dosing instructions clearly labeled according to age and weight.
