Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
Hello.

Thank you for asking at HCM.

I went through your history and would like to make suggestions for you as follows:

1. If L-Montus cannot give relief for running nose and sneezing, in such case, I usually prescribe intranasal corticosteroid (Mometasone or Fluticasone) sprays to my patients for 1 week or so.

2. Were I treating you, I would prescribe you salbutamol or levosalbutamol as inhaler for treating spasm. Please continue Doxofylline as suggested by your physician.

3. As you have had problems since childhood, I would suggest you regular breathing exercises including Yoga & Pranayama which will increase your lung capacity over time.

4. I would also suggest you allergy testing which will help you identify the substances you may be allergic to and also to know the measures to avoid their exposure.

Based on the report, an Allergist-Immunologist may prescribe you allergen specific immunotherapy which works on immune system to gradually improve allergy symptoms.

Hope above suggestions will be helpful to you.

Should you have any further query, please feel free to ask at HCM.

Wish you the best of the health and a rapid recovery.

Thank you & Regards.
