My seasonal allergies cause nausea and fatigue. Are there any ways to treat this?

Unlikely: Aside from food allergy or protein enteropathy (when the food protein is toxic to your system), people don't get nausea from allergic diseases. One exception may be nausea from a profuse amount of post-nasal drip although I have yet seen one. I would look for another cause for nausea. Fatigue however may be linked to allergic rhinitis.

Do seasonal allergies cause dizziness?

Do seasonal allergies cause dizziness?

No...but: I agree with dr. Mcghee's answer. Dizziness can be caused by the medications you're taking to treat allergic rhinitis. Phenylephrine, the decongestant found in many over-the-counter & prescription oral medications for seasonal allergies can cause dizziness. If congestion is your main problem, topical antihistamine or corticosteroid sprays may be a better solution. They don't contain phenylephrine. Read more

I get (seasonal) allergies that begin in feb (snowy weather). Nothing is growing yet, inside/outside is the same as start of winter. Possible cause?

Indoor allergies: Winter allergies are mostly blamed on indoor allergens. Although you are exposed to indoor allergens all year round, you experience more symptoms from them as you spend more time indoors and the windows are shut during the winter. Pets and dust mites are the culprits. Indoor mold is an issue if there is a leak or flood. Read more

Can seasonal allergies cause headaches?

Can seasonal allergies cause headaches?

No,: It is a misconception that allergies cause headaches. However, allergies can cause sinus congestion, which can lead to headache pain. If you have allergies, the treatment for your allergy will not relieve your headache pain. The two conditions generally must be treated separately. See your doctor to ensure proper treatment.

Could my skin problems be caused by seasonal allergies?

Could my skin problems be caused by seasonal allergies?

Possibly: While it is much more common for seasonal allergies to trigger eye, nose and lung symptoms such as allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis and asthma, it is possible for a skin rash to also develop. This is called end-organ sensitivity. The skin has similar allergy cells called mast cells, the difference would be allergen (pollen) presentation to the skin. Read more

Can seasonal allergies in children if not treated or maintained, cause asthma later in life?

No: If you have the genes to get asthma, it doesn't matter if you treat seasonal allergies or not. It will emerge whenever & wherever you hit the trigger events that let it come out.

Could severe seasonal allergies cause a chance in serum globulin? Globulin went up to 34 from 29 back in November.

Could severe seasonal allergies cause a chance in serum globulin? Globulin went up to 34 from 29 back in November.

No: Agree with Dr Chiu. And the increase in serum globulin is marginal. But why are you checking serum globulin that often? Not really a routine test, unless there is another problem being followed, and that was back in November, 8 months ago. If no other health problem, and just seasonal allergies, disregard those figures, best wishes Read more

I've been smelling cigarette smoke when none exists. What is the cause? What kind of doc. Should I see? I do have seasonal allergies from aug-nov.

Smell hallucination?: Olfactory hallucinations can result from head injury, upper respiratory infection (uri), sinusitis, migraine. Phantosmia can also occur with temporal lobe seizures, brain tumor or other neurological disorder. Consult with your doctor or allergist to make sure any allergy symptoms are optimally controlled. Saline nasal spray or rinse can be quite helpful. If the smell persists, see a neurologist. Read more
