Hi Allergy I have been suffering from nasal allergy since my second pregnancy last year - from April 2013( I was 4 months pregnant then )I had severe allergy that time. I was unable to sleep in the nights due to breathing difficulty.I used Allegra, Sudafed, Claritin on and off ( never used as a course as I was pregnant)After delivery, the allergy continued but not as severe as when I was pregnant.I went for allergy testing ( skin pricking test ) in USA in december,2013 and I was diagnosed as allergic to DUST MITES and some other environmental factors too. I was given a Fluticasone nasal spray to use. I used it for 3 weeks and stopped it as they are steroids.I came to India for 2 months ( January and February) . I visited a general doctor and was diagnosed as Allergic Rhinitis.  I tested CBC ( Complete Blood Count ) test and thyroid and eosinophilia - all were negative.  The  doctor said it is pure allergy caused due to dust. He prescribed me to use Montair LC for 20 days. Iwas feeling better while using the medicine. After stopping the medicine, the symptoms came back. Then I visited doctor again he told me to use the medicine Montair LC for 15 more days and check it. I used it and was fine and the symptoms returned when I stopped using the medicine. Then, I visited an Ayurvedic doctor in India and was asked to use chywanprash,  SwAsari pravasi, tribhuvankriti Ras and SwAsari ras for 3 months and use Chyawanprash only for 3 years. I started using these Ayurvedic medicines on and off as they have high heat potency. Then, whenever I get severe allergy reactions, I take Montair LC for few days for relief and stop it.  ---- what kind of diet is required for this allergy type??? ---- what foods should I ignore????           I used to take lemon, honey and apple cider vinegar mixed with water fora Few days in the early mornings for increasing my resistance. But as I am not supposed to take citrus fruits I stopped taking this mix. I used to eat oranges and orange juice earlier for increasing the vitamin c levels. Now I stopped taking this as they r citrus too. What should I do to have vitamin C  - any supplements ? I used amlaki ( for vitamin c - it has 500 mg) on and off........should I continue this for vitamin c...???? ----- vitamin d - I tested vitamin D levels here last month - my levels are 38.6 ( my multivitamin has 1000 IU ) ----- I am taking prenatal multi vitamin tablets daily since pregnancy. Can I eat wheat bread as it has GLUTEN in it????? ----- instead of milk, can I drink soy milk or Almond milk with cereal or oatmeal in the mornings for breakfast.... ( for calcium intake ) ???? ( earlier when I drank milk at night after eating food, I had nasal congestion ) - then slowly after I get burping and gases go away, the nasal block relieves again ---- sometimes even if I take heavy meals my nose is blocking and the block relieves once my gases pass away. ----- Nuts ( badam, pecans, walnuts, pista, dates, raisins, peanuts )  - should I stop eating all these nuts??? ----- I started doing pranayama since the last few days. ----- for omega 3 , I am taking chia seeds one tablespoon (2250 mg) daily is it enough or Do I need fish oil or cod liver oil supplement or algal DHA ???? -----Please tell me how to increase my immunity levels for combating these allergies My cousin , ent specialist told me to use Xaria Plus for 3 months course and said it will cure my allergies. Is it safe to use it this way? Please clarify these doubts.......

When i was 3 years old, i fell from a height. Because of which my nasal bone was tilted towards left from inside and a little from outside too. Now i am 22 years old. I can t breathe if my right side is blocked because of cold and flu. What should i do? If surgery, then what kind of surgery? I dont think septoplasty would work coz i dont have bone spur or extra part.

Dear Dr, I am 30 years Male. I had productive cough in morning for last 2 months and I was suffering from sinusitis also. The sputum was green. Now the cough is gone and only sinusitis remains, no that much sputum. I done a chest x-ray last week which came normal. However doctor told a elevation in Diaphragm and enlagement of heart. What will be the reason of this?. Active Pulmonoray TB not there, but will it be Miliary TB symptom or Amoebic Liver Abscess or anything else?? Please advice me for the next step

About a month ago I heard a loud noise in my right ear and got dizzy. Then two weeks later I had upper respiratory and my right ear looked irritated. I was prescribed z pack. Then two weeks after that I felt I couldnt swallow, my skin on my neck was stretching, pressure in my face, and dizzy. I went back to the doctor and he said both ears were irritated and I probably had sinus infection, even though I had no mucus. He prescribed amoxicillin and advil congestion relief. The pressure in my head at times was uncomfortable to a point where I had to look in the mirror and make sure my face was not disformed. I went back a few days, even though the other symptoms went away and he ordered an MRI. All came back normal except for a maxillary mucus retention cyst in my right sinus. The doctor said it was very small and should not be causing all this. Last night I went to the er because, the pressure in my nose for the past two days makes me feel as if I am not able to breathe. My right ear and head are numb when I feel the pressure in my right nostril. No matter what I take no mucus or flem is coming out and I get panicky when I feel the pressure and numbness. I have to say the pressure is not as intense these past few days as it was last week but still uncomfortable and scary. The ER doctor just ordered claritin but when I called my doctor that said it would dry me up more and he gave me sudafed which I am now taking. also was on lexapro (2,5mg) for a few years and took a year or so to wean off it correctly. I have been off of it for over two months. Could this be related? I have an appointment with an ENT this week.

I am a 53 year old female, 5 ft 3 ins and 13stone 8lbs. about 7 years ago I had a bad chest infection which I didn t take medication for as it happened over the Xmas holidays. Since then, whenever I get a virus or a cold the right side of my throat and chest feels heavy and I get a cough which takes a while to go away. Is this normal?
