You should have no problem finding Benadryl-
it is in every store here in the US. Dimetapp would
be harder to find. Benadryl is the brand name, just
look in the section for children- the bottle will say
Benadryl liquid for allergies- or for children, alcohol free
etc. It comes as Diphenhydramine 12.5mg/ 5ml (1 teaspoon) and
it is the only active ingredient- you can find it under
other names like Waldryl (at Walgreens) as long as it is
the same active ingredient it will be fine.
