How does ketotifen treat allergies?

Ketotifen is an antihistamine solution which works by blocking histamine release from cells that result in the symptoms commonly seen with allergies. If you are allergic to ragweed, pollen animal hair or animal dander, you probably experience itching, burning, red, stinging, watery, puffy or swollen eyes on a regular basis. You can easily get some relief by purchasing this medication at your local drugstore.

Ketotifen cannot treat every allergy symptom. However, it has proven effective in treating itching eyes associated with allergies.
