Jesse had the contact reaction to residue only at school last year and he had taken his daily antihistamine. So it didn't stop a reaction and certainly not an anaphylactic reaction that day, but still have to wonder, how many contact reactions does he escape, or after last year's reaction, does he?
Up-dating because previous, since it's an old thread, I had thought Jesse hadn't had a contact reaction at school because of the daily antihistamine. A year ago now, it's not so.

Quote:I have given him benedryl a few times when he has had a contact reaction and though it cleared up the hives right away, we are left with the tazmanian devil for at least 2 hours.

Thank you re-raising. Very informative as I face the decision of a daily antihistamine for Madeline.

My ds has been on a daily dose of Zyrtek for the last month and it makes him SO hyper!
We have another allergist appt in a few weeks, I'll ask her what she recommends. I have noticed a huge improvement in his eczema though, so it seems to make him feel better.

maddiesmom, glad I could help a bit. Darned if I could find the thread where Peanut Trace discussed placing her child on a daily antihistamine, which I found quite informative. It may have been a short thread as well, who knows? I just happen to remember the point in time when Peanut Trace was making that decision and posting about it here.
In some ways, as I've probably posted in this thread, and certainly in yours, I was fortunate in that my son was already taking a daily antihistamine for environmental allergies so I was never faced with the decision of whether or not I would have to medicate him simply so he could make it through a day at school.

But on the whole, he's never had any problems at school (except for one anaphylactic reaction - which it took me 1-1/2 years to figure out was ingestion rather than contact), so I can only assume that that daily antihistamine can't be hurting the situation at all.
I wonder if that question has been raised separately - how many people have placed their PA child on a daily antihistamine to go to school (i.e., reduce rashes, hives, mystery things)?

Hi. I spoke with my allergist yesterday and he said that Zyrtec was the best thing out there as far as a daily antihistamine.(But then again, another dr. may not think so)
When I've had a bad reaction though, I still take benadryl.
