Thanks for your query.

The reason for you getting cold frequently is your over active defense mechanisms. This has no treatment but the symptoms can be controlled by timely medications.

Steam inhlations with eucalyptus, a pinch of turmeric with a glass of milk though slow but are the effective remedies to get rid of such frequent colds.

Instead of allegra you can take Benadryl which is simple and effective.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.
