Piriton

Post by LyndaW on Mon Jun 09, 2014 7:25 pm

First topic message reminder :

Hi everyone, I am seeking advice about Piriton.

Poor little Kuchar has become rather thin coated on his underside as he has grown up, especially his inner thighs and around his "little man". He licks, chews, chobbles and scratches very often, and now his skin, which is easily visible in these places, looks pink, rashy and inflamed. If anyone can remember what German measles rash looks like on humans, this is what it looks like on Kuchar. I've got a strong suspicion that he is reactive to grasses and now that the long grasses are shedding pollen, his eyes have got a bit gummy too.

So, after recommendations from Caryll a few months ago, I plucked up courage and bought some Piriton today. To my great surprise I didn't get the third degree from the chemist department at Tesco! although I had my story all ready about my niece who suffers from hay fever (most of it true, so I wouldn't blush and stammer when the questioning started). Hooray! Now I have 30 Piriton tablets.

My question is, how much should I give Kuchar? Each tablet is 4mg chlorphenamine maleate. The dosage for children aged 6 to 12 years is half a tablet every 4-6 hours. Should I give him half a tablet?

I would very much appreciate your advice for my itchy little boy.

It can be quite embarrassing!

Exactly! Kuchar is an immovable object once he's splatted himself flat, but I can't just let him lie there till Kingdom come (or he decides otherwise), can I? Once he starts doing it though, I get him home as soon as possible - I've even contemplated scooping him up and carrying him!

laughing Oh dear!

We usually get him to move by coming up behind him and smacking him lightly (in play, not scolding) on the lower back so that he starts his mad bully runs! tongue

Here's hoping it works! tongue With Demps, we always tap his bum when he's doing his mad spinnies, as this makes him really excitable. That's probably why it works in getting him to stand up! tongue
