Welcome to HCM,
it seems that you might have some allergen producing allergic rhinitis.
Avoid pizza ,ghee or butter.
If you feel better then then it may be due to these substances.
You may have allergy to dust pollen etc.
Avoid fried and junk food.
Ok and bye.

hello. Welcome to HCM.
Your complaints indicate more a component of allergy than common cold or flu. It would be helpful if you can go in for testing for Allergy Panel which is routinely available in most standard labs. based on results of these, you can avid these food substances in future.
As a second step, it is possible for even adults to have hyperreactive adenoids, which will catech infection easily. So you need to go in for check up by a ENT specialist.
Take care.

Hi welcome to HCM. From your description you suffer from allergic cold due to various foods. I think you should avoid all known foods that cause the problem. You can take treatment for allergic cold and acidity which will help. But ideally you should get a food intolerance test to get a list of foods that you should avoid so that the episodes do not occur. Hope this answers your query satisfactorily. Regards.
