02 Jul 2012 It works and helped me with my itching. I think that's all I can expect since I have eczema and I know that improvement is all I can ask for:)

23 Mar 2012 I used this for a short time when it was first introduced and ended up becoming allergic to may pets... as well as getting a horrible rash on my hands and feet. I discontinued use and then removed my beloved pets from my life. BAD MOVE. I used Claritin for a VERY short time again about 5 years later and decided the previous experience was linked and discontinued use after about 2 or 3 weeks. The effects then moved to Alopecia Areata which in the last 8 years has become Alopecia Totalis and slowly becoming Alopecial Universalis. I connect it to the Claritin because I take very little if anything other than natural vitamins now.
