Hello,
Thank you for posting us on HCM.
I have read your symptoms which are in favor upper respiratory tract infection. you are probably having chronic allergic infection.
I would advise you
1. You should under go Prick test to identify the allergen which is sensitive to
you. then you can take Immunotherapy for that. I have seen excellent results
in my Patients.
2. Oral Antihistaminics
3. Rexidine mouth gargal
4. TAb Mast cell stabilizers
5. Lab investigation like Absolute Eosinophill Count (AEC).
Thank you.
