Seasonal allergy causing swelling eyes and runny nose,coughing at night.Will clairiton help?

My 3 year old son has bad seasonal allergies I have tried zrytech and now he is taking allegra which doesnt seem to be helping. The doc also told me to give him benedryl with the allegra but I kinda feel like its to much for him. His little eyes are swollen and red and he constantly has a runny nose because of his allergies. No matter how much anithistimine I use or how long I keep him a cool mist humidifier in his room he still coughs at night because of the drainage, He is also taking breathing treatments to help when he has wheezing . Should I try clairiton I have only had him on allegra for a few days now but I see no change in his symptoms. His eyes look awful becuase he keeps rubbing them and he cant sleep at night because of drainage what should I do?

Atopy is really a complicated issue,however few steps can not only give symptomatic treatment to your kid but also prevent further attacks.Ur child suffers from Atopy and with some hyperallergic airway disorder.This is typically present at this age group.Family history of asthma or allergies should be sorted out.First of all u have to take some preventive measures which will help him to settle down while his medicines are working.Make a dairy of all those things which trigger his symptoms like cold weather,pollen grains,certain vegetables in food,dust,etc.Smoking in the house,pets in the house in the form of dogs,cats birds,contruction going on in the neighbourhood and so on are known to the precipitating factors.Medication wise start him on syrup sinarest AF 5ml three times a day.If he wheezes then he needs a bronchodialator,syrup salbutamol 5ml three times a day.Give some steam inhalation and nasoclear drops 2 drops three times a day of cold.if no improvement,please consult in the asthama opd
