Zirtek Oral Solution is used to treat symptoms of allergies such as hay fever or dust allergy. Zirtek will alleviate the main symptoms of allergies, such as runny nose, sneezing, itchy nose, itchy eyes, and watery eyes.
Cetirizine can also be used to alleviate the symptoms of idiopathic urticaria which is a continuously itchy rash that has no known cause. Zirtek Oral Solution is a pleasant, slightly sweet, banana-flavored liquid, suitable for children from 2 years and up. Also, it contains the active ingredient cetirizine, which is known as a non-sedating antihistamine.
Furthermore, cetirizine works by blocking the effects of histamine which your body makes as part of its natural defense system. Allergies cause the body to release extra histamine which causes irritation of the eyes and nasal passages, leading to sneezing, itch, and streaming nose and eyes. By blocking this chemical, the drug in Zirtek alleviates allergic symptoms.
