Piriton Syrup provides fast relief from the symptoms of hayfever and other allergies such as nettle rash, hives, heat rash, prickly heat, reactions to food & additives, medicines and insect bites. Unlike the Piriton Tablets, Piriton Syrup can be taken by children from as young as 1 year.
Piriton Syrup is a great hay fever treatment option for all the family but particularly children. Piriton understands how upsetting it can be for a parent to see their child suffering with symptoms of an allergy. Piriton Syrup can relieve the symptoms of hay fever and other allergies, the itchy rash of chickenpox, and can aid restful sleep when symptoms are troublesome at night.
Piriton Syrup contains the active ingredient, chlorphenamine maleate, a sedating antihistamine, which works by preventing the actions of histamine (the substance produced by the body as part of its defence mechanisms). Exposure to substances such as pollen, pet fur or dust can cause the body to produce histamine. Once released, histamine causes an increase in blood flow to the area of the allergy, and the release of other chemicals that add to the allergic response.
