You may be suffering from seasonal allergic rhinitis the triggering agent may be temperature or pollen or animal dander or environmental pollution etcetera.

Avoid cool drinks and freeze water, use humidifier, use water vapour inhalation and salt water gargling thrice a day for five days.

Use tablet Levocetirizine and Montelukast daily at night for one week. If symptoms not improved, then please consult immunologist/allergy clinics, they will test for triggering agents and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am suffering from nasal and throat conjugation and nasal bleeding, Sometimes my eyes are swelling and etching. I have gone through various check up, but no disease has been detected. However, a medicine specialist told me that I am suffering from allergic rhinitis and prescribed me to take Montek LC for 6 months. Is it the proper treatment of this disease or any others? Nasal bleeding and eye swelling has been stopped after taking Montek LC.but the nasal conjugation is still now.

I m military and in basic and AIT (both located in GA) I developed a odd sounding chronic cough. I went through numerous tests to include XRAY, Methacholine challenge, GERD, Allergy and others I can t recall. I also have rhinitis which I m told by the allergist is not due to any allergy (I had a full skin test). It mostly subsided when I was stationed in Ft Lewis, WA while I was taking flonase and zyrtec. I ve since been stationed at Hunter AAF, GA and now the cough is back in full force and my rhinitis is no longer controlled by flonase. An allergist back at fort gordon told me it was cough variant asthma( after successfully reducing the symptoms with prednisone and then advair) but the pulmonologist at both fort gordon and fort lewis insist that I don t have asthma. While my symptoms are present I have a shortness of breath during running and similar exercises but to a lesser extent in washington. I had no issues during my deployment to Iraq (my 2 mile run times dropped four minutes with no changes in behavior) I was 18 when in Basic and AIT and now am 22 soon to be 23. Any ideas?

I a 33, 5 2, 160 lbs and have some symptoms of either MS or Devic s Disease (optic neuritis, spinal lesions, abnormal spinal tap). I have allergic rhinitis, gerd, and diverticulosis. My question or concern today is that I have no symptoms of sinusitis in my opinion, but my ears feel like there is a lot of pressure in them. Went to urgent care and they told me that is was sinusitis and that I had air trapped in my ears. i was given ru-hist, ru-hist d, astepro and verimist and also a hydrocortisone shot. This was on Thursday and nothing has helped, what should I do next?
