Cetirizine is also used to treat itching and swelling caused by hives.

Treating itchy, nettle-type, allergic skin rashes (urticaria or hives).

Treating a chronic itchy nettle-type rash where the cause isn't known (chronic idiopathic urticaria).

Cetirizine can be taken by adults and children aged two years and over.

How does Cetirizine HCl work ?

Cetirizine hydrochloride is a type of medicine called a non-sedating antihistamine. It works by preventing the actions of histamine - a substance produced by the body when it reacts to a foreign substance such as pollen or pet fur (an allergen). Histamine acts on histamine receptors, causing a chain reaction that results in allergic symptoms.
