Asked for female, 26 years old from Faridkot
Dear Lybrate user,
cetirizine is an antihistamine used to relieve allergy symptoms such as watery eyes, runny nose, itching eyes/nose, sneezing, hives, and itching. It works by blocking a certain natural substance (histamine) that your body makes during an allergic reaction. Cetirizine does not prevent hives or prevent/treat a serious allergic reaction (such as anaphylaxis). Therefore, if your doctor has prescribed epinephrine to treat allergic reactions, always carry your epinephrine injector with you. Do not use cetirizine in place of your epinephrine.
Our doctors usually treat this kind of issue by administering proper medications. But they first assess the skin type and nature of the patients. It helps them to proceed correctly with the aim of uprooting the exact cause of any skin trouble.
We are inviting you to avail our video consultation assistance. This shall help you to discuss this kind of issue very easily with one of our senior doctors. It will provide you with a similar level of satisfaction like that of visiting a doctor in-person.
