any history of allergies?
no history of allergies. This happens only in the morning and rest of the day is fine.
Well, when you are sleeping, material accumulates in your nostrils and your lungs which are not cleared as well when you are awake
So if you have any particular sensitivities, then this can be worse in the am
As well, your nose tends to be a little dryer since you are not actively hydrating
Particularly in the winter if the heat is on
You may want to consider using a cool mist humidifier to keep the room moist at night
ok, that should be it
I hope that I answered your question and provided you with excellent service? :-)?
should an allergy test be done?
I was going to mention that- I wasn't sure if you wanted to hear more
If it gets worse, you can talk to your doctor about doing allergy testing
there are some allergens which are seasonal
mold and dust usually are more common in the winter because the doors are closed
I wouldn't take any antihistamines if it is only in the am- they have side effects and they are more for serious allergies
how does allergy test work?
they do skin testing which exposes you to a variety of different substances and then see if you get a local reaction
ok great. thanks.
