ksdaile posted:
My seven month old grandson started on Friday being listless and sleeps alot, yesterday he started coughing. He symptoms seem like allergies, as he is not running a fever. Is there an over the counter med for baby allergies?

Check with tue doctor, but my six month old went for allergy tests and he prescribed a specific dose of the children's over the counter liquid zyrtec, or generic. But I would check to make sure that's what it is. Our allergist said they won't develop allergies to pollens the first time they are exposed. He said that will present itself the next season they are exposed to them...
