Hello doctor,

I am facing too much cold (almost every day), whereas during my last four-year stay in the previous place, even for a single day, I never had a cold. All medicine like Avil, Sinarest, Citragin, etc. failed and almost all home remedies also. Please suggest to me which medicine will give me relief from many hundred sneezes, continuous nose leaking, severe eye irritation, headache, and laziness.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

From the symptoms detailed, you have allergic rhinitis. Do you have a history of sinusitis? Sinus tenderness which can be elicited by applying pressure over your head, on cheek bones? Do you have congestion or blocked nose? Well the main cause of allergic rhinitis is the allergen that may be indoor, outdoor, occupational, pets, dust, smoke, incense sticks. Management includes,

1) Environmental control that is to identify and eliminate the allergen. This is the mainstay. Try to identify the trigger, avoid its exposure.

2) Pharmacotherapy, this includes T. Mont- L (Montelukast, Levocetirizine) evening 6:00 pm daily once.

3) Tablet Allegra 60 mg twice daily.

4) Intranasal Otrivin sprays if you have blocked nose only for five days.

Intranasal corticosteroids, Beconase AQ or Flonase (Fluticasone) or Rhinocort, Nasacort (Triamcinolone) two to three times daily.

It may take a few days for the effect to start. Do steam inhalation with few drops of Nosikind plus dropped in the boiled water. As I have already suggested, you need to identify the allergen and get rid of that. Do continue home remedies. Do revert if your symptoms do not come down in three to five days.
