Do not give Allergex to your baby and certainly not 3 times day. Allergex causes drowsiness and is not recommended for babies under 2 years of age. If your baby does need an antihistamine, you can use Allecet syrup which is a non-sedating antihistamine and is safe for babies. The dose is 2.5ml once daily.
