Allergens like pollen, pet fur, house dust or insect bites may lead to an excess of a chemical called histamine in the body. This chemical in the human body can cause various allergic symptoms such as skin rashes, watery eyes sneezing and blocked nose. Cetirizine treats hay fever by working to block the body’s natural histamines that are produced when an allergic reaction, such as hay fever, occurs. When taking Cetirizine hay-fever tablets, you should feel better after an hour of taking the tablets.
