Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have horror mornings. After I open my eyes and I get out the bed (only after I stand up) I start sneezing maybe 20 times. I have itchy eyes and years and runny. I feel like I have sand in my eyes. I have done prick tests for allergies and all come back negative. I also have done nasal cornettes turbino reduction and all in vain. My mornings are the same. What is the cause of this?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Allergic rhinitis is a perennial manifestation of allergic reactions to unknown triggers. Also, you may have coexisting allergic conjunctivitis. Though the prick test is negative for most of the allergens, we can not neglect the role of unknown allergies in your case. So I advise you to do a blood allergy test with All Full Panels including environmental, food, drugs and medicines, vegetarian and nonvegetarian foods, fungus, pollens, etc. Definitely, we will be able to find out the single cause of your allergy.

About medications, all drugs whatsoever you take, are only helpful symptomatically. So as long as you take medication you feel good. But there is no choice as there is no permanent cure for allergies. So I advise you to start T. Montelukast 10 mg once at night, continue Rhinocort Nasal spray and T. Claritin, it is a must to repeat blood allergy test as the prick test can not test all available allergens, and role of unknown allergens can not be neglected. So avoiding the known trigger Allergen and continuing the symptomatic treatment is the best solution for your problem. Continuous scrutiny must be going on to find out the exact allergens in your surroundings.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
