Benadryl for a 18 month old?
Safe or not? Elise has a rash in her face. I know if I call her pedi office they will say not to give any because they never ever give any kind of medication to kids.
She weights 18 pounds the hospital said 3.5
I know they sell children's benadryl. Do you mean adult's benadryl?
is there a dosage recommendation on an instruction? i think she should be fine
No, There's nothing it says under 20 pounds contact your doctor. I did they said 3.5
You can always call a local pharmacy. They have the best knowledge of all medicines for all ages and can probably let you know if its okay for Elise to take. Ask about topical Benadryl too.
Half the suggested dose, and put breast milk on the area it'll help.
Breastmilk is a great suggestion!
James' doctor actually told me to use Benadryl when needed. His doctor said in small doses, it should help. James has had it since he was about 18 months or so. He gets a really bad rash at times and it helps. They also recommended it for his car sickness.
