A Basic Allergy Medication

Whether you get home from work and you have been battling allergies all day long or your little one is suddenly breaking out in hives, having a basic allergy medication on hand is a must. No medicine cabinet is complete without the simple power of an antihistamine. Perhaps one of the best-known products on the market is Benadryl.

This classic pink allergy pill has been utilized for years to relieve the symptoms of common allergies. Benadryl can provide relief from a runny nose, sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, and itching of the nose or throat. Not only is Benadryl a good, basic allergy medication, but it is also recommended for reigning in any sort of out of the ordinary allergic reaction. For example, if you are suddenly breaking out in an allergy-induced rash of hives, Benadryl can help slow down the spread of this itchy reaction. Keep in mind that you should always consult with your doctor or seek medical attention in the case of a severe allergic reaction.

Not only can you utilize Benadryl for adults in your home and children over the age of six — consult with a doctor for a child any younger than this recommended age limit — but you can also utilize Benadryl for allergic reactions in your dogs. In fact, there are many situations where having Benadryl on hand could be a life-saving measure for your furry pal. Talk to your veterinarian about dosage for your dog and when this allergy medication can be utilized.
