Per the calendar, it has been spring for whole 4 days.
The weather has been perking up here in good ole' Nebraska.
With that comes pollen & sneezes & itchy eyes.
Monday, the kids played outside for a grand total of 1 hour. It was 35-ish degrees so they didn't last too long. But apparently it was enough to expose poor Hayden to the elements.
His eyes were almost swollen shut.
After a dose of Benadryl... he literally fell asleep in the tub.
Last spring his allergies were bad too. He made it through the spring with Claritin. Then it stopped working mid-summer. So we switched to Zyrtec. Which worked until September. He was puking daily just to keep his sinuses clear. He was miserable. We tried some Singulair, which worked great for his allergies. After a week he was in tip-top shape. However, apparently anger is a side effect in children. And he had some completely erratic behavior.
Today he spent the day rubbing his itchy little eyeballs raw.
So what are we to do?
I've heard raw honey is "the thing" to do. I'm just not sure about how to give it to him. How much? What are the risks of raw honey?
