Histamine is a substance produced by the body's immune cells in response to the entry of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. In addition, in inflammatory conditions not caused by microorganisms, histamine production also increases. In people with allergies, histamine production becomes uncontrolled, and occurs due to exposure to ingredients which generally should not trigger histamine production. For example, exposure to pollen of flowers, animal hair, or certain metals, in people without a history of allergies, this will not cause histamine production.
Antihistamines are not intended to be long term. Generally after the allergic reaction subsides, the consumption of histamine can be stopped. However, the use of histamine in children, especially children who are very young, must be careful, should not be careless, and must be on the advice and supervision of a doctor. You should not buy antihistamines at the pharmacy without first consult with a doctor. Make sure first that small spots on the skin of children, are allergic. Not necessarily these spots caused by allergies. In addition, not all types of antihistamines can be given to children under the age of 6 or 12 years. The dose must also be adjusted to the child's weight.
So, just consult with your pediatrician. Do not let good intentions treat your child, it can lead to unwanted side effects. Thus my explanation, hopefully you are helped. Regards.
