default
Posted on Mon, 30 Jun 2014
Question: Dear Doctor,
I am facing nossle block cum sneezing problem from last 1 year intermittently. Earlier I used to smoke a lot and used to take ghee and ghee sweets alot. But I never had this kind of problem. But recently, everyday morning sneezing became mandatory. I felt my nose is very sensitive because if I enter even kitchen while some masala item is preparing, again I will start sneezing and even with dust.

Is there any permanent solution for my problem with minimal medication or even in natural way.

Brief Answer:
Allergy in the nose

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir and thanks for using healthcaremagic,

From your symptoms it appears that you are having allergic rhinits - allergy in the nose.

It is not related to eating sweets.
You mentioned that your father has similar symptoms so in your case it may be genetic in nature.

Your symptoms can be easily controlled with antihistamine and anti leucotrine tablets. You will also need local steroid nasal spray. Typically allergy treatment is of long duration, but do not worry the medicines I mentioned above are vrey safe.

Yoga, pranayama and exercise also help to control allergy. Immunotherapy is used these days to treat allergy but it is used only when the symtoms are not controlled by standard treatment. I would personally not recommend it since it can produce side effects in the long run.

Please meet an ENT specialist and confirm the diagnosis and start treatment.

Regards,
Dr Rajkishori Godhi
