We started giving ds Zyrtec at 2 but we took him to a pediatric allergist first to see what this recommendation was.

Based on those symptoms, nothing.

Meds should be a last resort.

Nothing. Runny nose and sneezing could be the start of a cold. Usually allergy meds aren't given until 2. A doctor won't prescribe allergy meds just for sneezing and runny nose. Ds1 has allergy medicine by Rx, but he has allergy induced asthma. He has been on it since he was 2. Allergies for me(I've had them since I was little and also prescribed allergy meds) are sneezing, congestion, my sinuses burn, my head will hurt and I will cough, no runny nose unless I get a cold.

I would take him in to be evaluated.

Let your pedi recommend an allergy medicine, after seeing him. Might even wrote prescription for it. My copay is cheaper than buy it OTC
