Hi,
Welcome to healthcare magic.

This could be a chronic allergic rhinitis.
I recommend the following.
1) Avoid allergens like dust, pollens.
2) Steroid nasal spray.
3) Antihistamine like levocetrizine with montelukast.

Hope I have answered your question. If you...

I am suffering from seasonal allergies. The symptoms are runny nose, irritation in nose, sneezing etc. I take Levocetirizine which usually helps but some times it does not stop runny nose.Than I use Sinerest the combination contains Phenylephrine + Caffeine + Chlorpheniramine Maleate + Paracetamol . This relieves the problem. My question is - instead of this combination taking only Phenylephrine should be sufficient ? If yes is there any preparation that contains only Phenylephrine ? Thanks in advance.

doctor1 MD

Hello, Phenylephrine is added in the combination because it relieves nasal block. It does not have anti allergic action and does not help in runny nose. Chlorpheniramine in this combination is useful for seasonal allergy and is the substitute for Levocetirizine. Chlorpheniramine is more effective...

hello sir, I had running nose and heavy sneezing and watering eyes for about 2 days and went to doctor and took antibiotic and paracetamol and mucosolvan syrup for 7 days apart from other medicines

now the medicines are over but i am feeling very heavy in my head....pls. suggest something

doctor1 MD

Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
The heavyness in the head can be because of the frontal sinusitis. Nothing to be panic, consult an ENT surgeon and get it evaluated. You can continue to use mucosolvon syrum. Do steam inhalation.
I hope I have answered your query, take care....

doctor1 MD

Hi,
From history it seems that you might be having allergic rhinitis giving you this trouble.
This might be due to some allergens like pollen bodies, dust or dumpy atmosphere.
Take antihistamine like Cetrizine, Benadryl or some decongestant medicine as and when required.
Put decongestant nasal...

doctor1 MD

Hi,

As per your query, your child has symptoms of runny nose and sneezing which is due to upper respiratory infection.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you visit Pediatrician once and get it examined. You should get routine blood tests done to check the level of infection and start treatment...

My son has had runny nose for about a month now. It s all mucus plus he is coughing phlegm . Refusing to eat. He doesn t have fever thank God. Oh, he s 18 months and goes to pre-nursery. He might be teething also because I notice he s often grinding his teeth and his heads mostly a stove. Otherwise he s running around and happy but very clingy.

doctor1 MD

Hello there,

Ideally speaking cough and runny nose should not be left untreated for such a long time.

These are symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection. In runny nose, the infection trickles down the throat and can lead to lower respiratory tract infection as well.

This becomes more...

doctor1 MD

Children frequently develop enlarged nodes when they are affected with cold/flu,
upper respiratory tract infections etc.,
These nodes will disappear once the infection is attended to.

Since a family history of malignancy is present keep a close eye on the nodes check for increase in size or...
