Q.

Sniffing, itchy nose

My four year old daughter is constantly sniffing and rubbing her nose. When we went away for a weekend these symptoms disappeared, only to start again when we got back home. Does this mean she is allergic to something at home? Is there a mild anthihistamine that I can give her to deal with this problem?

This certainly sounds llike a nose allergy problem. Have you got a cat at home? Try Allecet Syrup 5ml once daily and see if it helps her.
