Hi all
We are really struggling with this. Currently DD (9) is taking Levocetirizine 5mg daily and Beconase spray two sprays each nostril morning and evening. She still remains sniffly and sneezy most of the day, it really gets her down. She's had her tonsils and adenoids out because of sleep apnoea.
Is anyone else going through this?
