Doctor insights on:
Avoid trigger: The most important aspect of treating allergies is to identify the trigger of the allergic reaction and avoid it. Many times, by reviewing recent exposures, a person can develop a list of potential triggers. With avoidance, the reaction will not recur. While an antihistamine can help with itching or a topical cortisone cream may relieve a mild skin reaction, the best treatment is avoidance. ...Read more

Depends what else is: Also happening regarding your allergies status. Any histamines work fairly quickly within 15 to 20 minutes. However if you also have itching in your eyelids, nose, throat, those will respond probably quicker then fluid draining from the ears. Also nasal decongestants can sometimes help clear fluid by decompressing the eustachian tube. Your doctor knows best. So, you should probably call her or him. ...Read more
I have an ear pinna allergy caused by earrings. Scale formation and itching. Can you prescribed me an ointment?
Can stress cause things such as reflux, post nasal drip, ultimately leading to constant fluid in the ear. Have allergies but this never has happened.
Yes: Stress can exacerbate symptoms of gastritis/reflux, both due to physiologic response and daily changes in diet/routine. Reflux can exacerbate nasal inflammation especially if already present from allergy. If the gastritis is not controlled by your Nexium, (esomeprazole) let your doctor know because (even in the context of stress) an endoscopy may be warranted. Work with an Allergist for better allergy control. ...Read more
How long is it safe to take Claritin D? D seems to be the only thing help chronic post nasal drip and fluid in ears. On allergy shots but slow progress.
BP Concerns: The decongestant in Claritin (loratadine) D can be helpful for acute facial pain/pressure and congestion but has side effects which can be significant. If you have a history of blood pressure issues or other cardiac problems I would not recommend. Consider talking with Allergist about other possible treatment due to refractory disease. Drying agents like ipratroprium bromide sprays and methscapolomine can help ...Read more

Can dairy allergy cause fluid to build up in your ear? . Would dairy allergy show up on a food allergy test? I noticed fluid build up when I eat dairy
Milk allergy: Can show up on food allergy testing either skin or blood test. Whether milk allergy can directly cause fluid build-up in your middle ears (not the external or inner ears) is unlikely; indirectly though, through inflammation of the upper airways that can happen in some people with milk protein allergy, that leads to blockage of the Eustachian tubes hence fluid build-up in the middle ears, ...Read more

Can eustachian tubes cause chronic disequilibrium? If so, can this affect vision? I have allergies, ears feel blocked when swallowing, vng abnormal
Highly unlikely: There has to be major pressure fluctuations such as diving for eustachian dysfunction (etd) to cause imbalance. Chronic disequilibrium is present during movement when there is vestibular weakness as identified on the vng. Vision is used to compensate but shouldn't change. Ear fullness can be from etd, méničre's, tmj, hydrops, reflux. Balance retraining helps when one ear has balance weakness. ...Read more

Fly with ear fluid.: Technically you can, but you may be very uncomfortable at altitude with bad earaches, or you may even rupture an eardrum. If you can’t use the nasal sprays, you can try to dry out the ears with an OTC antihistamine, but I’d start it at least one week before you leave. ...Read more
