Suffering from allergic rhinitis and sinusitis. Normal biopsy report. Have nasal congestion, running nose. Permanent remedy?

I have been suffering from Allergic Rhinitis with Sinusitis for the last 10 years or so. I went through almost all types of medication i.e, Allopathic, Ayurvedic & Homoeopathic. But, haven t got any relief till date.I went through a minor surgery for biopsy but found nothing serious. But, I suffer from stuffy, runny and congested nose almost 12 months a year and this affects my job. Right now I am going through Homoeopathic treatment.But whenever, allergy increases I have to go for allopathic medication. Please advise me if there is any permanent cure for this.

Hello Protush,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Your symptoms are suggestive of allergic rhinitis and rhinosinusitis, that if it remains like this may develop into allergic asthma.
You will need to know what the allergies are by either skin prick tests or specific IgE tests to aeroallergens such as house dust mite, animal dander, mould allergens etc.
A complete blood count, IgE level, TSH fT4, Vit D levels are additional tests that help n understanding why the allergies have become severe.
Long-acting antihistamines such as fexofenadine 180mg taken once daily with Nasonex nasal spray 1 spray per nostril once daily for 3 months is recommended. The allergy tests will help in determining which season you should use the treatment.
Failure of medical treatment means immunotherapy over 3-5 years remains the last option that will also be decided on the basis of results of allergy tests.

I hope that was useful.
