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--especially when their allergy symptoms can impact children’s social growth along with their health. But instead of rescheduling their favorite  activities, just rethink how to treat your child’s allergies.

Choose Children’s FLONASE SENSIMIST Allergy Relief over Children’s Benadryl®

Forget about Benadryl®, Children’s FLONASE SENSIMIST is the medication your child needs for nasal allergy relief. Here’s why:

  1. Children's FLONASE SENSIMIST relieves nasal congestion that comes with allergies, but single-ingredient Children's Benadryl Allergy does not.*
  2. Children's FLONASE SENSIMIST is applied locally at the source of your child’s suffering—in the nose, where it’s needed most.
  3. Children's FLONASE SENSIMIST is taken just once daily, while Children’s Benadryl® Allergy requires multiple doses. And Children’s FLONASE SENSIMIST works for 24 hours for active days and restful nights. This is very important if your child is going to school.
