I am a 23 year old male, suffering from allergy for past 6 years. I am facing this problem more in winter. Early morning, I will get 10 sneezes continuously. If I take cold foods, I will have running nose throughout the day and severe sneezing. Also I have itching and watering of eyes. Currently, I am taking homeopathy treatment. When I have severe sneezing, I use Allegra 125 mg. Please tell a solution to get cured of this.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
My diagnosis of your condition based on the information you have provided is allergic rhinitis. However, to confirm the same I want you to do two investigations namely serum IgE and absolute eosinophil count. Both are blood investigations.
Allergy is not curable, however you can control it. You can keep it under wraps so that you are not bothered by the frequently disturbing symptoms. It needs patience and perseverance from your side.
Following are some precautions and suggestions to help you deal with this problem.
If we know for sure that you are suffering from allergy (positive results in those two tests which I told you) we can institute you on steroid nasal sprays namely Mometasone Furoate (Metaspray) or Fluticasone Propionate (Flomist).
These will reduce local inflammation in the nose and prevent allergic symptoms like running nose tremendously. However, they have to be used continuously for a period of one or two months. They are safe and do not produce side effects like systemic steroids.
I am unsure regarding homeo medicines whether it will be helpful for this condition or not. You are advised to use your discretion regarding the use of homeo medicines. However ayurveda medicines being entirely natural (as what is claimed by manufacturers and ayurveda pharmacies) can be combined with allopathic medicines without fear of side effects.
1. Dust, dust mite, smoke, pollution, wind, pollen, saw dust, husk, agricultural dust and industrial air.
2. Food allergies like prawns, peanuts, milk and gluten.
1. Serum IgE.
2. Absolute eosinophil count.
3. Total blood count.
1. Allergic rhinitis.
2. Non-allergic rhinitis with eosinophilia syndrome.
Allergic rhinitis.Treatment plan:
When you suffer from allergy (on the day of intense sneezing and running nose) take a tablet of Allegra (Fexofenadine) 120 mg.
If the problem appears daily then take Montair Fx (combination of Montelukast sodium and Fexofenadine hydrochloride) for three nights daily.
