When a person comes into contact with allergens, their body produces histamine, which causes allergy symptoms like hives and watery eyes to appear. Aerius is a type of antihistamine, which blocks the histamine from producing adverse symptoms. The medication comes in both tablet and syrup form. It's important to take Aerius as recommended by the makers of the antihistamine.
