Most probably allergic

Detailed Answer:
hello

thank you for getting back with the answers. Your features are suggesting recurrent allergic response. If i were your treating doctor then i would have advised following things:

- cetirizine one at night for 5 days.
- Montelukast one daily for one month. Research has shown that it decreases the allergic symptoms considerably.

I would also suggest you to undergo allergy testing at allergy clinic as you have chronic allergy problem. The results will help an allergist to prescribe you immunotherapy to that specific allergen and it will improve the problem.

Hopefully you will see improvement in 2-3 days BUT if problem remains same or aggravates then you need to visit hospital.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
