Antihistamine: Over the counter antihistamines can provide relief of nasal congestion, and drainage that is caused by allergies. They can also provide some symptomatic relief from a runny nose from a cold. A nasal saline flush can also provide some relief.

What is the best natural medicine for allergies, specifically nasal congestion?

What is the best natural medicine for allergies, specifically nasal congestion?

Nasal Saline: The safest and in many cases, effective, is nasal irrigation with saline, available in any store. You can also add a nasal lubricant; there are many brands, my favorite are Rhinaris and Nasogel. If these are effective, great. If not, my suggestion would be to try OTC medications, most of which are safe and effective. Not nasal decongestants. ...Read more

Saline nasal allergy spray called asteoto. It's main ingredient is azelastine hcl. Could that show up on my drug test?

Saline nasal allergy spray called asteoto. It's main ingredient is azelastine hcl. Could that show up on my drug test?

No, but sedating: Tons of meds cause false-positive results in drug tests. It depends on the actual testing reagents. Here's just one ex: http://www. Pharmacologyweekly. Com/articles/drug-classes-cause-false-positive-urine-drug-screen. Be honest reporting all meds, even if they won't show. Your antihistamine drops are considered sedating, so may be prohibited if you are a pilot/ATC. Consider montelukast. Works well. ...Read more

How can I tell the difference between nasal allergy and sinusitis

Associated symptoms: Persons with nasal allergy typically have congestion, clear nasal discharge, itchy and watery eyes. If symptoms last more than one week, a viral cold is unlikely. If the drainage changes to anything other than clear, it may be infected (sinusitis). Colored drainage suggests infection, but clear drainage does not rule it out. Many allergic symptoms are seasonal, but not pet or dust mite allergy. ...Read more

Is nasal allergy or nasal rhinitis has connection to a food allergy?

Maybe: Could be food allergies or intolerances (notice how long after you eat a suspect food this starts), but more likely inhalant allergy or reaction to pollution or smoke. Cleaning up your diet with fresh veggies, fruits, fiber can help, avoiding the "whites" refined sugar, flour, etc and chemicals found in diet foods. Powdered (not tablet) vit c (3000 mg) helps symptoms, butterbur, quercetin, too. ...Read more

Can chronic nasal allergy be cured forever and what effective treatments are there?

Possibly: There is no absolute yes or no answer. Immunotherapy, which can either be with allergy shots or allergy drops addresses the fact that your body is making antibodies to allergic proteins. There are people that go on allergy shots and their symptoms go away and never come back. However, that is not always the case. All medications do is treat symptoms. Medicine is not a cure for allergies. ...Read more
