My husband once a while has a very bad allergy and sneezes continuously which is a worry most times. We still do not know what the cause is.?

Allergic rhinitis: This sounds like an acute allergic rhinitis reaction.

Nasal irritation: The sensation of tingling in the nose can represent minor irritation in the anterior nasal lining. It can result from something as simple as kleenex use.

Hi, I'm 34 weeks pregnant and have severe allergy symptoms sneezing, itchy ears and throat, runny nose and eyes, which medicine is good for me?

Allergic & pregnant: The less medication used in pregnancy, the better, most people agree. However, late in pregnancy, category B antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Zyrtec are generally safe for mother and baby. Nasalcrom spray is especially safe, as long as one is not allergic to it, which is RARE, but it is not very strong. Nasal steroid sprays Nasacort/Flonase are usually fine, because not much is used--all these OTC ...Read more
