How does one prevent runny nose and colds ?

Hi I am experiencing frequent running nose since one year , after the delivery of my second son .it starts as sneeze and then gradually turns into cold , sometimes there will be itching sensation in the nose. Initially I was wondering that may be I am allergic to something but it starts as soon as I get up before I even eat something. Running nose will be there for one day and stops by itself. Is there any relation to cold and gastritis .Initially the frequence was klike once in a month , later once in a week now its like almost once in 2 to 3 days. I am really fed up pls help

you have allergic rhinitis
do check your s.Ig G level .
antihistamine like levocetrizine will work well
better to identify the allergen and avoid it ,allergic sensitivity test will be required
avoid windy and cold weather

Hi sonia;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The running nose problem is due to allergic rhinitis that is it is the inflammation of the local nasal mucosa due to some allergen.It will be difficult to locate the exact allergy causing factor and even change in atmosphere or place can cause such a thing.You need to consult a ENT specialist and get treated for it.There is no relation between cold and gastritis so consult a specialist and get treated.
