Thank you for asking at HCM.
I went through your history and would like to know more about you like your age, duration of symptoms, details of nose & throat symptoms, whether you have headaches
, any digestion related problems, your home & work environment, etc. Such details would help me to know more about your problems specifically.
At present, based on your history, I would like to make suggestions for you as follows:
1. Regarding over-the-counter (OTC) medicines, I would suggest my such patients to take an antihistamine like cetirizine
for 3-5 days to look for improvement. There are other allergy
medicines available, but they might not be available as OTC drugs.
2. I usually also suggest my such patients regular warm saline gargles to improve throat symptoms, which usually helps.
3. Please avoid exposure to smokes, air pollution, dusts, etc as much as possible. If cold
drinks/cold foods aggravate your symptoms, I would also suggest you to stay away from them till recovery.
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 ahead.
Thank you & regards.
