My 18 month old daughter has severe allergies and has been taking Zyrtec and Singulair for about a year and they work very well.  The Singulair comes in powder form that you mix in their drink.

Both my daughters had allergies when they were little, my oldest eventually grew out of it. My little one still has them she,is 20 mnths, and my doc recomended Zyrtec. You can buy it over the counter but I would double check with your doc if your 1 year old can have it and dosage info.

My daughter's pediatrician suggested a prescription for nasonex. its not meant for children under 2 but he said one squirt in each nostril once a day should help. My daughter responded wonderfully to it without any side affects. Also ask about a VERY low dose of benadryl. Something around .625 ml just to keep the nose from being stuffy and their eyes watery. But definitely check with your child's pediatrician first.

My advice would be to go to an allergist to get tested to make sure it is allergies - usually children do not have allergies until after one once they have been exposed over a long amount of time.. i would go to the allergist to do the appropriate testing and at that point he or she may prescribe something. I wouldn't give anything except benedryl w/o a doctors advice and even then.. i would check with them on the dosing. jenn
