Doctor :   Have you got any blood tests or allergy tests?
User :   Not yet
Doctor :   I would advice you to get a CBC, and Differential count
Doctor :   Once the results are out, if there is any elevated eosinophil count , it would indicate a cause of allergy
User :   these are blood tests..
Doctor :   then, a Allergy test , can be done to know the cause of your allergy
Doctor :   Yes they are blood tests
Doctor :   Once the tests come positive, a medication called MONTENAT -LC ,
Doctor :   this will reduce all your symptoms
User :   oh good..i'll go for these test asap
User :   Rightnow i am taking Roxid 150 with levocetrizine and PCM
User :   i got this infection y'day evening..
Doctor :   first you need to know if this is a infective source or due to allergy
User :   right Sir...
Doctor :   most of the cases, are viral in nature, and u dont need antibiotics
Doctor :   supportive medications and antihistamines ( levocet) etc - are more than enough
User :   yeah i also feel sometimes as no antibiotic seems effective
User :   at the time of infectoin
Doctor :   thats a proof that , this could be due to allergy
Doctor :   and not due to infection
User :   right but why it occurs after a certain period of time like after one or two months
Doctor :   this is probably due to exposure to allergens at a higher dosage
User :   okay...
User :   Shall i contact you again after getting the reports
Doctor :   yes , surely
User :   and doctor with whom i can consult my psychological problems
Doctor :   you can do that
Doctor :   you might consult a psychiatrist, who can take a detailed history and analyse your situation
Doctor :   Are u there ?
User :   okay..for that i need to visit physically
Doctor :   Yes, that would be better
User :   Right Doc.
User :   so what about these test you mention a CBC, and Differential count ...are these tests comes under complete observation of allergic system or small specific tests for recognising few special allergic elements of throat..
Doctor :   they come under general blood tests
Doctor :   but an interpretation of the tests will indicate the cause of allergy
User :   okay...i'll get it done..Thanks doctor..
Doctor :   u r welcome
User :   Hav a nice day
