You : You should also take an allergy medication like Claritin (loratadine) or alavert. If you are still having these symptoms, you should see your doctor. At this point you could be dealing with a pharyngitis (throat infection), bronchitis (infection of upper airway) or even sinusitis (infection of the sinuses). All the best.
