    Default Hay fever in toddler...?

    Can toddlers/babies get hay fever? Does anyone have experience with this and what did you do for it?

    My DD is only about 20 months but she seems to get a runny nose/cough/sneezing for 24 hours. Then it's mostly gone. Then repeats a week or so later. Trying to figure out if it's daycare sniffles or maybe hay fever. I don't get hay fever so I really don't know what is like!

    Yup they can, can you try an antihistamine and see if that helps and go from there?

    My best friends son has severe hayfever and allergies, has done from about 12 months old.

    Interesting. Think I'll need to chat to chemist about it plus what to use without contraindications on her aspirin etc.

    Good idea, its worth a try, even just to eliminate the possibility of hayfever

    That's what I'm thinking.

    We are wondering the same thing about our 22 month old! He has a constant clear runny nose and cough. We took him to the dr who said it was 'chronic post nasal drip' making him cough. It's so annoying though as its affecting his ability to sleep grrr!! We tried Airius(??) and no relief for him. Love any other ideas if anyone has any

    So he didn't think it was hay fever?
    A chronic drip? Does that mean it won't go away? Sounds like what my daughter is like.

    My ds has hayfever.. he is always rubbing his itchy nose. Clear runny nose and dark circles under his eyes when he has these other symptoms. They are all hayfever related. We use childrens telfast which seems to help for a little while.. he is 2.5 but has been like this from time he could rub his nose very early on

    Yes my DD gets it when certain flowers around here come out - she has dust allergies too and Zyrtec works really well. I wouldn't use long term without getting tests done though.
