welcome to healthcaremagic portal
pollen allergy is at the back of mind for most of your related problems,but here you have to take care of lifestyle change.More of outdoor activity(pollen problem is for a certain period only)and less of video games and proper nutrition will be helpful

Pollen allergy can worsen this problem. My mother had a similar problem and it continued for 4-5 years. We met skin specailists and eye specialist as well because water used to flow down her eyes and create a black mark below her eyes. It used to get cut because of salt content in the tear coming out the whole. Doctor first gave her a medicine that had steroid. Then another doctor got it stopped and asked her to use calamine at the dark spots. Her dark spots were like a small bag type under both the eyes. Two things that helped her was: using calamine, sleeping atleast 8-10 hours a day and then using one anti allergy medicine that the doctor prescribed. So your problem may have to be solved by ophthalmologist and skin specialist together.We had been to a new hospital called Sankar Eye hospital in Whitefield area in Bangalore where this problem could finally be resolved.

You must meet an allergy specailist along with your guardians.This problem is common in children less than 18 years of age and in many cases, it gets better with age. If you are in a metro in India, you can find a doctor locally. One good Doctor I know is Dr. Rao in Bangalore, who is board certified allergy specialist from the US and has recently started his private practice.

Can maple trees cause allergies. It seems when they bud, then drop the red stringy thing my allergies are at their worst. I mean even my ears get blocked and I feel as though I m under water. This when on for seven weeks. It would cause me to feel like I was in a fog and kinda affected my balance. Seen four different doctors none of which where allergist. All perscribed something different and not one of them worked. I afraid that it will happen again this spring! We ve only lived here for three years. We are surrounded by maple trees.

I have a long history of chronic sinusistis, I even have had septum and sinus surgery before, but my level 4 allergies to dust and pollen are too much and I wake up every day with vacuum headaches. I feel like there is a constriction and weight above my eyes causing bad headaches, dark circles , eye strain, etc. I am currently taking asterpro and mucinex. I just purchased allegra but historically those one-a-day allergy pills never worked for me too well.

Dear sir/Madam, I am Muhammad Jawad, 26 years (male). I face problem in my chest (Chest congestion). I have visited several doctors. Some recommended Levofloxacin 500 mg full dose some prescribed Moxifloxacin but in vain. One doctor recommended Monteleukast sodium 10 mg once daily. I feel better when I take this drug but feel chest congestion again when give up this drug. Normally my congestion starts when I am in rest position. My congestion is severe in places with high number of pollen. Kindly let me know what my problem is. Is it pollen allergy or something else? And one more thing, I often suffer from chest infection as well. I am smoker but I have reduced smoking. I don’t smoke more than 3 cigarettes per day. Kindly let me know my disease and how to cope with this problem. Thanks very much.

hello doctor,



my son is 12 years old and is being effected by secondary exima from time to time. it started when he was 9 years old and traced back to pollen allergy from the wild grass around his school. he has shifted his school since then. allopatheic medication has not stopped recurrance of this allergy though not as extensive as it was when started. allopatheic doctors say it usually takes a few more years to subside. am mailing to check how good unani medication can support a cure for this.
