I have had a constant runny and congested nose since three years. After years of trying anything possible and seeing several doctors, I was finally diagnosed with a severe dust allergy, as well as asthma by last year. At that time I was pregnant, so I could not be prescribed any medication, but I took extreme measures to help this allergy subside. I have been steam cleaning all rugs at least twice a week, dust every day and everything is hypoallergenic. This has unfortunately done nothing to help. My nose runs constantly, and I mean constantly. I have gone through two rolls of tissue paper in the last 24 hours. I have tried every medication, spray and natural remedy on the market. I have tried three different prescriptions, and nothing has worked. It has affected my job and my home life. The mucus is always clear, watery and lately; it has a foul taste or smell. Doctors in my area have given up on me and said live with it, but I can barely take care of my son because I have to leave all the time to deal with a fountain of mucus coming out of my nose. Please tell me what is wrong with me. What can I possibly do? I am desperate.
