My 9 yr old son's eyes are starting to bother him and he rubs his eyes a lot.. it's that time of year seasonal allergies..pollen.... in the past I've tried drops.. they don't help so well ..anyone else have experience with this and can give tips of what to do? I feel bad because he wants to be outside this time of year with such nice weather.. but he comes in with his eyes all red and rubbing it...

Claritin but he has to take it daily to really work. If that doesn’t work go to an allergist they have many ideas and combos. Good to have one anyway if he suffers so much. He might be a good candidate for shots.

My kids take Claritin every day for a month straight.
My toddler nebach got allergies this season and is crying miserably that his eyes itch. He's also on Claritin.

Ask your pediatrician. Mine recommends daily Zyrtec. As others have said, antihistamines generally need to be built up in the system to see the results.
