2nd opinion: I presumed you have had a workup by an allergist who has instructed you on the proper technique on the nasal spray and you have followed the instructions on avoidance measures. Have you tried Dymista or singulair yet? And yes, hormone can affect nasal congestion being most evident in some women during pregnancy.

Antihistamines, nose sprays, and completing allergy shots are not getting rid of my allergic shiners. Need advice. ?

Sometimes, you need a bigger dose of Prednisone tapered over a longer time to suppress the reaction. See your doctor again and ask about this. The chills may be due to coming off the steroid too quickly. If you don't improve on another round of steroid, see an allergist. ...Read more
