Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. You have a non specific allergy, probably to sudden change in temperature or humidity.

2. You need to request your doctor to give you a trial with a anti-histamine (such as cetrizine, rupatidine or fexofenadine), an anti-leukotriene (such as montelukast), a steroid nasal spray (such as mometasone, fluticasone) and regular plain steam inhalation.

3. The dark urine may be due to dehydration.

4. For building up resistance and immunity, try a good diet with natural sources of vitamins and minerals. A recently launched tablet (Pulmigen) from Cipla is a freeze dried bacterial lysate.

5. Get your nose and throat examined to rule out other causes of nasal obstruction such as a deviated nasal septum, hypertrophied nasal turbinates, persistent adenoid tissue and so on. The color of the interior lining of the nose may help identify the type and stage of the allergy. A video nasal and throat endoscopy will help. You may share the images here.

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.

Regards.

Hi,

Thank you for writing back.

1. The recommended course for Pulmigen is ten days a month for three months. You should take all medication only under the supervision of a doctor.

2. Only Vitamin C supplementation will not prevent colds.

3. Request your doctor to prescribe an anti-histamine, an anti-leukotriene, a steroid nasal spray and take regular steam inhalation. A decongestant and a mucolytic may also help. A cough expectorant (such as Grilinctus-P) will help clear the cough. Get an opinion from a Chest physician.

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
