He told us if our child has a history of vomiting during an allergic reaction that liquid Benadryl will do them no good during an allergic reaction. (because they will throw it up, of course!) I won't go into detail, but let's just say that we fall into the "vomiting during a reaction" category.
His suggestion was this form of Benadryl:
I quickly did what any good allergy mom does when she finds something that might be more effective for her allergic child: ran to my nearest drug store!
I quickly found them and love them! I'm sure you have seen things like this before. You just stick them on your tongue and they dissolve within seconds. There is no stomach absorption involved.
I also have a "big kid" with food allergies, too. (My husband!) I have been wrapping two Benadryl tablets in foil and putting them in his wallet. He complains that he can feel them in there and doesn't like them. Problem solved with our new Benadryl strips! They are as thin as paper. I just stuck two in his wallet (the equivalent of two tablets) and he does not know they are there unless he needs them.
I love solving an allergy problem this simply!
