I have been a boater for years and everyone on boats can tell you if you feel sea sick to take Dramamine© now i have a 1&1/2 year old who has flu like symptoms and took him to the doctor and the doctor gave him Benophen Allergy.

It contains Diphenhydramine the only ingredient. Now i know that last part and its for sea sickness , but what is Diphenhy for? Is that for the flu? Why is there nothing about it online?

I searched Google and get conflicting results. Am i just overlooking something HERE? Why dose this not make any sense? Why would i want to give my child something for sea sickness when he has flu like symptoms ?
