How do you help your child manage their allergy symptoms when the medicine isn't enough?
marie_magnolia posted:
My daughter (7) is alergic to pets, pollen, mold and dust. She was prescribed OTC Claritin. She is still having coughing that is disruptive to her sleep.

Anyone have any ideas on how to help?

Yikes! Is she seeing an allergy specialist?

We have a Allergy Community, you can also post your concerns there for additional member and possible expert response.
