Compare Children's Flonase vs. Children's Benadryl for Allergy Relief

Children’s FLONASE SENSIMIST Allergy Relief vs Children’s Benadryl®

If your child has allergies, you’ve probably tried everything under the sun to make sure they get the relief they need. And who wouldn’t, when their allergy symptoms can put a real damper on their activities? But instead of rescheduling, it’s time to rethink just how you’re treating your child’s allergies.

While most OTC allergy medicines provide some allergy relief, they aren’t indicated to treat a broad range of symptoms, including nasal congestion. Below, we compare Children’s FLONASE SENSIMIST with Children’s Benadryl® to illustrate how the new kid on the block delivers more complete allergy relief* to your child when and where they need it most.


Single-Ingredient Children’s Benadryl®

 Offers more complete allergy symptom relief,* including nasal congestion

 Helps block 6 key allergic substances, not just 1 like other oral allergy medicines**

 Is applied locally at the source—in your child’s nose

 Indicated to relieve itchy, watery eyes


 24-hour, once-a-day dosing

 For ages 2 & up

Considering all of the benefits listed above, Children’s FLONASE SENSIMIST allergy relief nasal spray is the clear choice. In addition to providing more complete allergy relief*, it has many kid-friendly features that will make allergy medicine time a breeze. Children's FLONASE SENSIMIST provides a gentle mist kids will barely feel. The formula is scent free, alcohol free and virtually drip free, plus it has the shortest nozzle and an easy-to-use side actuator. So you can spend more time enjoying your kids being kids and less time worrying about their allergy symptoms.

*vs single-ingredient antihistamines that only treat nasal congestion.
**Mechanism vs most over-the-counter (OTC) allergy pills. FLONASE nasal sprays act on multiple inflammatory substances (histamine, prostaglandins, cytokines, tryptases, chemokines, and leukotrienes). The exact number and precise mechanism are unknown.
†Children’s FLONASE SENSIMIST is indicated for itchy, watery eyes in adults and children 12 years of age and older.
