If simple allergies, would get into an allergist to find out what u r allergic to as well as to get on an excellent nasal hygiene regimen. ...Read more

Been having a runny nose bad cough especially at night, Claritin (loratadine) hasn't been working. No fever, no chills, just cough and runny nose. What should I do?

Been having a runny nose bad cough especially at night, Claritin (loratadine) hasn't been working. No fever, no chills, just cough and runny nose. What should I do?

See doctor: Post-nasal drips is likely the most common cause for a chronic cough but you will need to be checked out for asthma also. Nasal steroid is usually more effective than Claritin in reducing the nasal symptoms -> improvement in your cough if asthma is not present. If your nasal discharge is often discolored, then sinusitis needs be ruled out. ...Read more

Brain, epidural, & subdural abscesses & meningitis can all result from sinus infection, as well as thromboses of venous sinuses of the brain. Have seen all of these. Although infrequent they do occur. Roof of maxillary sinus is floor of the orbit of eye. ...Read more
