Yes: Treatment of allergic conjunctivitis starts with eliminating or avoiding the allergen as well as rinsing the allergen from your eyes with plain water (reduces the allergen load).

No scented detergents, soaps, lotions, deodorants, etc. No fabric softeners at all. Avoid candles, etc. ...Read more
Ok to combine: Each of the medications listed work by a different mechanism. Montelukast blocks the effects of leukotrienes; allergra is a new generation antihistamine; and fluticasone is a corticosteroid nasal spray.

A toss up.: One study that directly compared 3 nasal steroids, including Nasonex (mometasone) and Flonase, suggests that Flonase may act more quickly than Nasonex (mometasone).

Otherwise, it's a toss up! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can I consume alcohol while using a qvar(beclomethasone) prescription inhaler, momentasone furoate , and prescription Amoxicillin and Clavulanate?

In the nose they are not absorbed, so there are few side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
