Re: Seasonal allergy body itching??
Zantac and Pepcid are H2 blockers. There are two different antihistimanies in the body H1, and H2. H1 blockers are claritin, allevert, allegra, etc. The H2 blockers are Zantac and Pepcid. The Derm told me, to control itching they give both to patients. I know that when I had a very bad allergic reaction with full body hives, a nightmare(about six months ago to something thatI ate) when I went to the emergency room they gave me pepcid plus benadryl in my iv. I don't know how much it is true, I just know from what they told me. Hopefully it helps you. I just took a pepcid tonight, because I am starting the itching really bad again. Allergies must be really bad this year, because I am usually not like this. I live in NJ and it is really hell this year with sneezing and runny nose. Usually I am not itching like this. The Derm told me that It usually comes and goes, they don't know what causes it, they just know how to make patients comfortable.
I hope this helps.
