Brief Answer:
Allergic reaction

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to healthcare Magic and thanks for putting up the query.
Allergic reaction is in response to an allergen only. It can be dust or some food or cosmetic etc. Please tell me what allergic reaction you are having like a skin allergy or eyes or nasal allergy etc.
The best way to avoid an allergic reaction is to avoid the causative agent which should be recognized.
LPR is usually not caused by anti allergic medication unless steroids are used.
Tell me what medicines have you been taking so far?
Follow up with the required information so that i can suggest you better.
Take care
Thanks and regards

I have allergies to pollen and dustmites, and most trees and grasses. I haven't been tested for food allergies, but I wonder how this would be done. In Canada they don't seem to have food testing unless you ask specifically.
I think I have a combination of allergies, hormone issues AND LPR.

My main symptoms are heavy periods, post nasal drip and soreness in my throat. I have tried ppi's and they don't work. Now I use some gaviscon and ranitidine.
