Constantly suffering from sneezing, noseache due to being allergic for dust. Remedy?

Hi, My sister shifted to Mumbai 7-8 months back after marriage. But in this time span, she is constantly suffering from sneezing or nosache. Visited local doctor but she was told that she is being allergic to aerosols/dust particles, but that doesn t solve the purpose and day by day her health is deterioating. It has become difficult for her to manage between office and home due to her health issues. Please suggest a good doctor in Mumbai or any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance !! Regards, Varun

Hello Varun,
Sorry to note your sister's symptoms.
Dust allergy has become a major problem with the growing urbanisation, changes in housing with little natural light or air and reliance on A/C units that increases the humidity.
Allergy testing is highly recommended to know the extent of her allergies, whether it is house dust mite, or mixed with animal dander, moulds, fungal spores, grass pollens etc.

There are various private labs in Mumbai that offer blood test (would recommend specific IgE test rather than others) such as Metropolis etc and these need to be reviewed by an experienced Chest physician with interest in Allergy or an Allergist.
Long acting antihistamines such as allegra 180 oce daily, nasonex nasal spray 2 sprays/nostril for 3 months is recommended. The tests will guide duration and seasonal therapy.

I hope this helps.
Best Wishes.
