What Medication Is Better For Stopping Sneezing And Runny Noses?

Which medication is better for sneezing and runny noses? CVS allergy tablets, benadryl, or walmart's Equate allergy relief? My twelve year old has a runny nose and she has been sneezing quite a bit. These are what I have in the house and it's been hard to get to the store lately. Can anyone help?

Answer

Hi Sarah H.

I know you posted this several months ago, but I was wondering if you found a solution that worked?

Generally it is best to ask a doctor about medications (especially for a child). Depending on the cause of the sneezing and runny nose (cold, flu, allergies, etc.), different medications will work better than others. With OTC medications, you can also ask your pharmacist for advice.

I hope she found relief!
