Treating Eczema with Daily Antihistamines
I've read in certain posts that some kids are given a daily dose of antihistamine to prevent outbreaks of hives from scratches/irritants, etc.
Has anyone had success treating their child's eczema by daily dosing with antihistamine?
What are the long term effects of daily use of antihistamine, any? I wonder if it's no worse than the twice-a-day application of cortizone cream to alleviate the condition.
