Suggest me medicine for smoke and dust allergy

Hi, am Anjan and am from Chennai. I am Allergic to smoke and dust because of that I start sneezing and get running nose. I always have cold and severe at times. Initially i consulted an ENT who prescribed me with duonase(nasal spray)and a tablet by name allegra. Which gave me relief for few days but not a permanent one. Now i ve been taking Montek LC for about 8 months. I feel better when i take the tablet but when i miss a day or two i get severe cold again. Why is it so?

Dear anjan
You will have to increase the immunity of your body to the allergens that cause repeated attacks of rhynorrhoea. Herbal medicines are very good at it. I would suggest you to start with swamla [ dhoopteshwar ] 1tsf bd. mahalakshami vilas ras swarn yukat one od and hot milk with half tea spoon of haridra [ haldi ] in it. This will increase your immunity for diseases related to urt. If there is acute attack of cold you can have one tablet of A flu cil forte bd for five days with hot water.
Avoid irritant fast food and cold things including curd.

ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response
Hi Varadan,

You are having allergic rhinitis, this does not have any treatment. Prevention is the only way you can get rid of this problem. Avoid dust/smoke as much as possible, do not lie directly under the fan and change the bed sheet everyday (if possible) or cover the bed with another sheet so you can remove the upper cover before you go to sleep. Finally when exposed to dust or smoke cover your nose with a clean handkerchief.
