Zaisal syrup is a medicine that improved antihistamine called zyrtec. It is said that drowsiness is low, but from your family doctor I was prescribed as “Please consult if drowsiness comes out”. Some seem to have drowsiness even with a small amount of Zaisal syrup.
By the way my son never got sleepy by taking medicine.

In case of such symptoms, let’s consult a doctor promptly.
How does it taste?
It is a sweet taste. However, as time passes, bitterness comes out, so let me drink immediately after mixing with water or juice.
How to let your baby take medicine
Both Zaisal and Zazen are sweet taste, but they sometimes hate. Then, the pediatrician told me, “When you make your baby take medicine for the first time, you better stop mixing with milk.”
When you want a baby to take a medicine such as syrup, aiming at hungry etc, when you drink with an eyedropper it is common to drink.
In case of son
When my son passed the age of 1, Zaisal syrup was prescribed for the first time. However, because it was not so effective, it changed to Zajiten dry syrup.
This seemed to work, the face I was scratching became a little better.
In atopic dermatitis scarring or scrubbing will worsen healing, so let’s have a doctor prescribe if you scratch by all means.
Also, of course, you can suppress histamine with medicine, but let’s improve everyday eating habits such as reducing consumption of foods containing a lot of histamine.
It is also said that itching of atopic dermatitis does not involve histamine.
What foods have histamine?
Vegetables Spinach, eggplant, bamboo shoots, tomatoes, etc.
Seafood Mackerel, Tuna, Sardine, Sanma, Tara, Clam, Crab, Shrimp, Squid, Octopus, etc.
Meat, pork, beef, egg white etc
Other nuts and dairy products, chocolate, cocoa, coffee etc.
Looking at this way, it seems that there are a lot of histamine in fish and shellfish, meat, etc. which are often vegetables with acne or allergic symptoms.
Also, adults and atopy people are interested in wine, beer and so on, because they contain a lot of histamine.
Contrary to foods rich in histamine
Some food suppresses histamine.
What kind of food suppresses histamine?
Strawberries · Broccoli · Komatsuna · Cabbage · Orange etc.
Foods rich in vitamin C act similar to antihistamines that suppresses histamine.
Moreover, lactobacillus contained in tea, natto, yoghurt such as tea tea and rooibos tea seems to be effective for allergy and atopic dermatitis.
Fortunately, my child loves vegetables and broccoli · carrots etc. eat only what I just boiled
The current season also loves tomatoes.
I hope to continue to eat pleasantly while paying attention to the nutrients of vegetables.
