Hay fever symptoms include itchy, watering eyes; sneezing;
runny, stuffy, or itchy nose; headache; and fatigue. The following home
treatment measures may help relieve your symptoms:
antihistamine, such as Benadryl or Chlor-Trimeton, to
reduce symptoms of itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, or runny, itchy nose. Be sure
to read and follow any warnings on the label. Don't give antihistamines to your
child unless you've checked with the doctor first.
decongestant, such as Sudafed PE, to relieve a stuffy nose.
Decongestants may not be safe for young children or for people who have certain health problems. Before you use them, check the label. If you do use these medicines, always follow the directions about how much to use based on age and in some cases weight.
Clean the inside of
the nose with
salt water to clear a stuffy nose.
