Allergic to dust, sinus problem, frequent sneezing. What s the cause and remedy?

I am normally a moderate allergy sufferer. Mostly during the spring with slight allergies to cat dander and dust the rest of the year. Nothing serious , I even own two cats. Whenever I cry and inevitably have to blow my nose as a result , it causes me to have sinus problems for at least a day afterward. It feels like something is in my nostril causing me to sneeze. Similar to getting pepper or something in my nasal cavity . Over the counter allergy medicine does little to help. My question is why does this happen and how can I quickly stop it when it does happen ?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Have blood test - RAST / if there are allergens detected, De-sensitisation may be tried.
In addition to anti-histamine, you may try other drugs - local decongestants / oral leukotriene antagonist..
Local steroid spray may help in seasonal exacerbation...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Allergist and Immunologist Dr. Suman Kumar's  Response
YOUR ALLERGIES WILL INCREASE WHEN YOU GO INCREASE IN AGE SO HAVE TO TREAT IT
YOU CAN BE ALLERGIC TO FOODS PETS DISTS AND POLLENS
YOU CONSULT ALLERGEOLOGIST TO FIND OUT CAUSE AND TREAT THEM WITH IMUNOTHERAPY
DONT NEGLECT ALLERGIS
TO PREVENT I CAN ADVISE YOU TO APPLY NEOSPORIN H ETE OINTMENT IN NOAE BD
SEA WATER DROPS 2 DROPS AT NIGHT IN EACH NOSE THIS CAN MAINTAIN THE ALLERGY TO SOME EXTENT
YOU CAN CONTINUOUSLY USE
TAKE MONTAIR FX OD OR BD FOR 5 DAYS IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMPS NO USE OF ANTIBIOTICS AND DECONGESTANTS
