is not a steroid. It is an antihistamine. When you have an allergy, and your nasal or conjunctival
tissues come in contact with the allergen, your immune system responds by secreting many biochemicals that cause itching
, congesting, tearing, runny nose etc
one of those biochemicals is histamine. By taking cetirizine, histamine is destroyed so your suffering is reduced. However, as it is only one of the biochemicals, the problem is not completely eliminated!
please meet an allergist
in your city to help you properly resolve your problem. Treatment of your immune system takes time, so please be patient and follow your allergist's advice meticulously and over time you will find yourself being healed.
