My 18-month-old son’s pediatrician would like me to give him 1 tsp. (12 mg or so) of Children’s Benadryl every night before bed to help with allergies and a very itchy heat rash. Only problem is, the Benadryl package says very clearly “Not for use in children under 4 years old. For children age 4-6, consult a physician” or something similar. Don’t know what to do here, any advice appreciated.
