It has been found that due to no reason whatsoever, some people get non allergic rhinitis,ie sneezing follwed by sore throat and even severe headache.the sneezing is triggered at night or evenings.use of anti-histamines,helps, but it cannot be used for long,since one gets immune to the medicine,some were recommended Montec.I do not know whether it is required at all.The latest drug in this catagory is Allegra, which is helpful in some patients.Pl. share your experience and views on the above
hi,thanks for query.This allergic rhinitis only.Some allergen like dust,smoke or strong smell acts as triggers and that leads to allergic reaction which can lead to series of events.If you can find one,please avoid allergen is the best treatment,in other case you can go allergy testing and try to find a cause.Some anti allergic immunoglobin injections gives relief for long term,please discuss this with your doctor.
wishing good health.
Allegra is the drug used for allergic rhinitis symptoms control. it will not help in non allergic rhinitis. the cause for non allergic rhinitis is not allergey, this should be confirmed by allergen and nasal tissue examination. there are many types of non allergic rhynitis and each has different treatment. if not allergic rhinitis than there is no point in taking the Allegra

Hello, I am a 32 year old female residing in Berrien Springs MI. I just moved to the area from FL. I am 107 lbs and 5.1 tall. I have been diagnosed with non allergic rhinitis. I have had pressure in my head, with some dizziness and sometimes a light headache. My ENT gave a spray but that does not seem to deal well with my symptoms. Are these symptoms treatable at all. They come on and off, and I just feel that they are affecting my daily life. Please help...

I suffer from non allergic rhinitis and it is ruining my quality of life. The medicine I take to help with the symptoms cause dry mouth. I am desperate for answers and help with this problem. Is there a surgery that can help with this problem? I am currently taking donnatol (it has a drying agent in it) and atrovent nasal spray 4 times daily. Sometime it works and sometime it does not. I also take salogen for dry mouth caused by the other medications. I am a mess and desperate for help. Thank you so much.
My father, age 78, is in excellent health and only takes medication for hypercholesterolemia (low 200 s). He recently started Erythromycin for head and chest congestion and sore throat. After taking this for a few days he had blood blisters erupt in his scalp and ears. His head felt a lot of pressure and he was worried he might be having a stroke. His neck and head were stiff with some numbness in his right arm. He DC d the antibiotic and went to his doctor, who placed him on Prednisone. Now he is a little groggy and isn t feeling well so he stopped the Prednisone. He sounds weak and we aren t sure why he was put on the Prednisone. My question is - why take Prednisone if the blisters are drying up? What is the benefit versus the risks?
I am writing about my 14 year old son, who has been ill repeatedly 4 times for the past 7 weeks. He s been on antibiotics all 4 times, struggles to recover until his antibiotics are nearly gone, finally feels better for a few days and then gets it again. We are wondering if it is valley fever. Can that come with congestion/sinus symptoms? He s been diagnosed with sinus infections each time, but develops not only significant congestion/sinus symtpoms, but also chest pain, horrible coughing, fatigue, sore throat, and is miserable. He has faithfully taken not only strong antibiotics, but prescription strength cough syrup/decongestant, Flonase nasal spray, Zyrtec once a day, and breathing treatments up to 4 times a day, along with vitamin C and lots of fluids. He is otherwise very healthy, but his doctor is concerned that perhaps it is not really sinus infections he has had. I cannot find on the internet where there is a connection between congestion/sinus symptoms and Valley Fever - curious about that as others have asked if he has been tested for it. We live in Phoenix. As a young child he had repeated ear infections, but 4 years ago at age 10 he had his tonsils and adenoids removed, tubes in his ears, and a major sinus surgery. He has been very healthy ever since until now. Any ideas? Thank you verey much!

Last month (Early December) I was having ear pain, sore throat, cough, and mucus/runny nose. I also noticed a grouping of about 3 or 4 white spots(inflamed with puss-like characteristics). I had my tonsils removed about 8 years ago. My doctor said I had a regular infection it ll pass in 2 weeks, and the symptoms were gone. Yesterday I looked in my throat and those spots are identical and haven t resolved. When I was younger I had strep with the tonsil stones but this is not it. I snore. Have sore throats in the morning. Sacks or bumps in throat are not at all painful. My tongue is white at the very back of it. Doctor took a culture and it wasn t strep. Also I have put on about 12-20 lbs. since summer of 2010 and. H doctor is worried a out dibetes and cholesterol tests. Does anyone know what this is? Thank you.
