Discussions that mention benadryl

Children's Health board

When our two boys had it we put them in the tub three or four times a day for an oatmeal bath and it seemed to really bring a lot of relief. You can also give some Benadryl but call the doctor or a pharmacist for the correct dose for a two year old. They will want to know his weight when you ask. Before he breaks out, if his fever and/or head are bothering him you can give some children's tylenol. Hopefully since he has had the vaccine he will just get a mild case.
