Thanks for query. You told you have allergy to dust and cold things and pollution. You did not mention what were the symptoms you were suffering from. Did you have recurrent cough, cold sneezing, cough, rhinorrhoea? You may use Tablet montelukast-levocetrizine for two weeks followed by levocetrizine tablet once daily . You may also get benefit from fluticasone- azelastine nasal spray one puff twice daily. As you told, you got releif after using levosiz tab so you may use it for two weeks followed by levocetrizine once daily. You should also undergo pulmonary function test. Allergic rhinitis is associated with asthma in a significant percentage of patients.You should always rule out possibility of asthma in presence of above mentioned symptoms. Please consult a pulmonologist.
