Hi doctor,

I have sinusitis, an allergy to dust, heavy sneezing, and a runny nose from August to February every year. Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. Your symptoms are suggestive of allergic sinusitis or upper respiratory tract infection. You have an allergy to colds, as per history. For that, I suggest you Levocetirizine, it can be taken whenever congestion is present. It is advisable to avoid cold exposure by taking some hot drinks and wearing protective clothing, take one teaspoon of turmeric powder with milk daily. Try to drink lots of water, do steam inhalation three times a day with lukewarm water whenever congestion is present, avoid excess spicy food intake. An immunotherapy shot can be taken if the allergy is troublesome. For that allergy specialist can be consulted. Influenza vaccines also can be taken if needed. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further. Thank you.
