Specializes in Allergy and Immunology

If you have colds a year but are otherwise healthy, it is more likely that your cold symptoms are from allergy instead especially if they respond to oral antihistamine/decongestant. Consult an allergist who can evaluate you both on an immunologic and an allergic points of view.
