Okay

You seem like you have very bad allergies.

You must be consistent with nasal saline 3-5 times a day. The most important thing is the nasal steroid spray. Flonase 2 sprays once daily (it takes 3-5 days to work). If that doesn't work you will probably need a prescription strength spray called Dymista (1 spray twice daily). Consistency with the sprays is MOST important.

Besides that, Claritin-D and Singulair are also very important. Hope that helps!

I taking Claritin non drowsy
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
u think I gotta buy Claritin D instead

Yes, give it a try. It has Sudafed in it which isn't great if you have heart or blood pressure issues, but if you don't have that, give it a try.

You should see an ENT to evaluate your nose to make sure you don't have sinus problems, polyps or a deviated septum. You may even need a CT scan. You can also see an allergist to help find out exactly what you are allergic to.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give me a 5-star rating. We can continue to speak even after you rate if you would like. Thanks!

Help me breath

If you use Afrin for more than 3-4 days it can cause rebound congestion and make things A LOT worse. Please stop Afrin. I have seen very bad effects from it.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Claritin D

Absolutely! Flonase doesn't work right away so stick to it. I use it myself and it is a life changer.

ENT is an ear, nose and throat doctor. A CT scan is a type of xray to look at your nose/sinuses.
