Discussions that mention claritin

Children's Health board

could she have allergies? my daughter had fluid in her ears (no other symptoms) and her doctor said to start giving her claritin to help dry it up.... he said she just probably had drainage from allergies and that was the only symptom.... so we did it, and the fluid was gone by the follow up appointment a week later. don't know if you've tried that route....

the other thing you could do is just wait it out. my niece had ear infections constantly from the time she was a baby until around the time she turned four years old. her doctor recommended tubes, but my sister waited and my niece out grew the ear infections.... she's five now and has only had one ear infection in the past six months.
