Since our Coron, Palawan trip, Ethan's papular urticaria (allergic reaction to insect bites) has been off and on. He has been taking an anti-allergy medicine once a day to control the itch or pruritis. The medication can also be used in treating anxiety and as a premed to general anesthesia. Say what?! The medication also causes drowsiness, sedation and somnolence. It does not really make Ethan sleepy for two hours after I give him the meds, he's still wide awake and has no intention whatsoever of going to sleep. It's the morning after that is hard. I can't wake him up and if ever I eventually drag him out from bed, he is so lethargic! I

can't very well stop the medication for when he itches, he scratches!... and each forceful scratch leads to welt which could lead to eczema! What to do? His legs are now peppered with dark spots because of the insect bites. Well, I can always half the dosage as the dermatologist suggested. Half the regular dosage then.
