Brief Answer:
Suggestive of an allergy! Continue with fexofenadine. Add carbocystein!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about these symptoms that you have reported. I have reviewed them fully and this is suggestive of an allergy. I am not sure of what exact changes are in your environment but you should try to look around and identify new additions to keep away from. Fexofenadine is a good drug for allergies. Because of too much mucus, I will add carbocysteine to fluidity and accelerate expectoration. I am positive and optimistic these measures would be very helpful in your healing and recovery process. Keep me updated.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
