Although you generally have to take precautions to avoid allergy and allergic triggers, being besieged by this condition is inevitable. This is when you have to resort to taking an effective product. Piriton Syrup is used to control the symptoms of allergic conditions that typically respond to antihistamines. These conditions may include hay fever and other allergies such as to pets and dust mites, skin allergies, dermatitis, hives and nettle rash, heat rash, prickly heat, food, food additives and medicine reactions, insect stings and bites and itchy rashes caused by chickenpox. Piriton Syrup treats the symptoms of allergy by blocking its root precursor- a natural substance known as histamine.
