Please stay indoors, rinse eyes and nasal passages with saline. Avoid dust, mold, pet dander and smoke. Take an over the counter antihistamine daily until your symptoms resolve and/or discussion with your PCP. Montelukast is an anti inflammatory agent which may help to control nasal symptoms. Flonase nasal may also be added. Consider a virtual inbox consultation with HT.

Allergies can cause nasal congestion, runny nose, asthma and skin problems. For blocked nose, use a saline nasal wash 1-2 times a day (netipot) and a decongestant (sudafed). If these don't provide complete results, try a nasal spray (oxymetazoline) for 1-2 days only. To prevent allergies, you can use an antihistamine daily such as claritin, zyrtec, benadryl. Drink lots of water!!
