See your Peds: If cold symptoms persist see your Pediatrician, if this is a cold that is most likely viral and medication is not needed. You may want to keep your child's nose clear with saline drops and possible gentle suctioning with a nasal suction bulb. Read more

Hi. This month I found out that I am allergic to perfume. Everytime I am near a perfume, I sneeze and get itchyskin. Possible future normal life?

Control environment.: It is possible to have a normal life but it will take a lot of work and pro-activity on your part. Everyone meaningful to you needs to know in order to help protect your personal space. You need to avoid pitfall areas like perfume departments/stores, and you may want to get allergy testing to see if certain triggers can be nullified with desensitization therapy or allergy shots. Good luck. Read more

Allergies: Spring allergies have been very bad this year. It can be that the anti-histamine simply isn't effective enough to offer sufficient protection against the allergies. Try to visit an allergist to get allergy tested and to receive a personalized medication regimen based on your test results. Read more

My eyes and ears bleed profusely whenever I sneeze and sometimes fart when I sleep and I wake up from it. What is happening to my life.?

Hmm...: These symptoms need to be evaluated immediately in person by a medical professional. I would need much more information to even make an educated guess as to what is going on with you given the symptoms you have mentioned. Make sure your parents or guardian is aware of what is going on and do not delay seeking an evaluation in person. Read more

Protective reflex: Irritation of the back of the nose makes most people sneeze; the body thinks something may have crawled up there.

What causes me to sneeze out food?

Several reasons: You may have very significant reflux disease, where food is coming all the way up into the back of your nose from your stomach.
