Contain the active ingredient : Bilastine, which 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.
In allergic reactions like hay fever, histamine causes inflammation of the nose, eyes or airways, resulting in itchy, watery eyes, a runny, blocked or itchy nose and sneezing. In allergic skin reactions histamine causes skin inflammation, rashes and itching.
Bilastine blocks histamine receptors and so stops the chain reaction that causes the symptoms of the allergy. It usually starts to work within an hour after taking a dose.
