Can a 7 year old child take teczine for allergy problems?

So my name is Radhika, and I'm 23, and I take teczine medicine for my allergies that i get nearly every morning. I was wondering if my 7 year old brother could take teczine too? Or is he too young to do so? Teczine has helped me with my allergies as well as its helped my friends and famiy. But can the younger kids take this medicine?

Hello doctor i have a friend here who is suffering from a very severe case of dust allergy. He s had his tonsils removed when he was a child and that proved to be a mistake as his doctor says. When he was 11 years old, he suffered an allergic attack and he was hospitalised. He lay in coma for 2 days. His doctor says that he has extremely low resistance and another attack like that may prove fatal. Now he is 19 years old. He gets very high fever frequently, like once in 2 weeks, and a bad cold almost every day. He gets small attacks often. These are seemingly caused by nothing, they are always sudden. He can t stand in even a mild dusty place without coughing continously for 30 minutes. He has a high eosinophil count of 13% and his doctor has told he cannot be cured unless he builds his resistance. He s been a weak chld since birth. He takes evening walks and eats fruits to improve his resistance. He absolutely refuses to take up meditation as he believs its of no use, and nothing can cure him. I get scared now everytime he gets an attack cos he speaks like it might be his last breath. Please help.

I have been to a few doctors and all of them have said that there is nothing wrong with me. However everyday all day long my throat is sore and my ears ache to the point where I cannot sleep at night, feel itchy and I am spitting out a lot of mucus. I m assuming it s because of allergies because when I take medicine like reactine or claratin my symptons are milder but still there. I m wondering if there is anything I can do to solve this problem because I doubt it s healthy to be taking allergy medicine every single day. I am 19, 125lbs and faily active.

Hi, Over the past month or two, I ve experienced a few minor symptoms that I thought were unrelated until I began noticing a pattern. After I eat, I get stomach aches, bloating , fatigue , and cold sweats. I m also had more frequent headaches and body tension which I figured could have been caused by a lot of work but nothing is out of the ordinary. I pay attention to my diet and exercise regularly. My next step is to get allergy tested and blood tested but I thought to ask here first. Any recommendations? Thanks.

Can you kill or is there an antidote for this GMO drug Pegfilgrastiim. You already took my credit card. Where are you? The drug is neulastin. I am allergic to this. It must be stopped. What can I do. What do I tell emergency?
