Hello I'm Dr Chip

Meclizine wouldn't be the best medication for her problem

I'd suggest benadryl or Claritin and topical Caladryl lotion to treat her allergy

Please let me know if you need any more information

A quick follow up, please. What are your thoughts on using Fexofenadine? How about Singulair? Not together, of course. Which do you prefer, or do you give them equal standing?

Fexofenadine is much like Claritin and that's fine

Singulair works in a somewhat different manner but it would also help

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
