Hello doctor,

I am suffering from a cold for three years until now. I think it is due to a dust allergy. Please help me.



Welcome to

The long-term cold is suggestive of allergic respiratory tract infection. You need to investigate with allergic testing for further work up. The causative allergen needs to be avoided like dust, mite, pollen exposure, cold atmosphere, etc. The Levocetirizine or Fexofenadine like anti-allergic medication can be prescribed for your case. Immunotherapy is also beneficial in such cases.
