There are so many antihistamine drugs available I can never remember the names of all of them. They all say they will cure your allergies but it is really annoying to have to go through buying all the different brands in search of one that really works. I think that everyones allergies are different too and so what works for one person may not for another. Im still on the lookout for something that will cure my dust allergy completely. Most antihistamines are either ok for a few days then I get tolerant to them or they just arnt that effective. I just get so miserable not being able to breathe, I dont think people without allergies understand how it affects your quality . Read the complete review

~ What is Zirtek and what does it do? Zirtek contains Cetirizine which belongs to a class of medications called antihistamines. When you are exposed to pollen, pet fur, house dust or an insect bite the body can produce histamine. It is the release of histamine, which causes allergic symptoms. I'm sure those of you with hayfever/allergies will be familiar with the nasty symptoms. These can include rashes, sneezing, watery eyes, itchy throat and a running or blocked nose. Antihistamines stop the effects of histamine and help to relieve these symptoms. ~ Why do I take it? ~ I get hay fever all year round and I am sensitive to dust. I am also allergic ...

Zirtek is a tiny little tablet that stops allergies in their tracks. Anti-histamines in general reduce the excessive histamine produced by the body when it preceives a threat that isn't really a threat. Great to have a dysfunctional immune system! But they vary wildly in their effectiveness of certain symptoms. Zirtek is well known for controlling in particular skin conditions. Urticaria is its speciality much to the relief of people who suffer. However, this may just be my G.P but it was deemed too expensive to be given regularly on prescription a few years back so many people were switched to other brands. In recent years the price of Zirtek ... Read the complete review

When I was younger I always had extremely sensitive skin - so when I used to develop random rashes the doctor wasn't too worried, and everyone just put it down to general allergies as allergy tests pointed to no single cause. However when I was 7 my skin became constantly itchy, and bright red from where I'd always be scratching it. The doctor finally diagnosed me with urticaria and prescribed a cream; but that would only help temporarily and could not be applied at school etc. So two years later the doctor prescribed one-a-day 10mg Zirtek tablets. After two doses the itching had completely gone. Simple as that. Zirtek is amazing for this ... Read the complete review

I have recently developed an allergy to mosquito bites. If anyone else has it, you know how annoying it is. Bites swell up to about 4 to 6 inches across and not only itch like hell but hurt too. Apart from repellent, there isn’t mach that can be done; I will be bitten on holiday at some point. I used to use Anthisan cream, which gets rid of some of the itching, but you can only use it in one area for three days. It was taking 6 to 9 days for the swelling to go down. On the suggestion of my pharmacist, I started taking Piriton Allergy tablets. Has anyone else tried these? They’re terrible. Not only did it do nothing to help the allergy, they made me ..
