Husband given Propofol today for EGD & colonoscopy. Now sneezes CONSTANTLY & nose runs, only when STANDING. 9hrs. Since Propofol & 18hrs. Since prep.

Unlikely propofol: It's unlikely this reaction is due to propofol so long after the procedure. It sounds as though your husband is having a histamine-release reaction for some reason--like hay fever. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or a non-drowsy antihistamine such as loratidine. This should clear up on its own. ...Read more

Depends...: If you are also having itchiness it is most likely allergies and you could take over the counter Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Claritin (it should not make you drowsy like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can). If not, cold symptoms may last about 7-10 days, but if feeling very sick or worse during the next few days you need to see your doctor. For now lots of fluids, rest, cough and congestion meds should suffice. ...Read more

Viral infection: Drink over 2 liters of water / day--not hard, as one bottled water is ½ a liter. That will help to flush out the virus circulating in your bloodstream. A nasal spray decongestant like Afrin has minimal absorption into your bloodstream. A drying antihistamine (those which can make you sleepy) like diphenhydramine is regarded as safe, too. Try half the usual dose, which would be 25 mg. ...Read more

Allergies likely: Sounds like fairly typical allergy symptoms. A cold (uri) and allergy can be very similar, but a cold lasts 5-7 days and you feel more sick. Allergies last much longer, like for an entire season, or year round. You don't feel quite as ill with allergies. You may need to see your doctor for assistance because there are many other allergy medications that can treat your symptoms. ...Read more

Why does my cat allergy make me cough? Along with the sneezing and runny nose, I cough. Is loratadine effective for this? WHAT is the best treatment?

Simple...: The cat skin, hair cells enters your body by your nasal passage. That is why sneezing and cough (body trying to expel it), runny nose because of your immune cells reacting with the cat antigen causing swelling and inflammation and oozing of fluid.

Not Benadryl (diphenhydramine): There are far better AND SAFER antihistamines which will not make him dopey. Claratin, Allegra, and Zyrtec are less expensive if you look for the generics. OTC NASACORT (triamcinolone) is more effective, can be used with antihistamine or by itself. Antibiotics are not appropriate unless there is fever and pain. ...Read more

Time heals all thing: Your elbow to cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, or cough into your shirt, and be sure to wash your hands to prevent spread. We all get a shot at having a cold, but none of us want one. Many things are sold in the cold aisle, but the data is not strong. You can suppress your cough for the movie or theater, with cough drops, ricola, Halls, etc. Antihistamines can dry a runny nose. ...Read more

After a couple days of sneezing and runny nose. I am now a bit stuffy and getting a sore throat that includes the roof of my mouth. What's going on?

Symptoms: Sore throat (and tonsil stones), swollen tonsils, ear pain, sneezing, and runny nose. Also trouble sleeping and general weakness. Ideas?

I wonder: Are you using antihistamines for allergy symptoms? A side effect can be mouth dryness, which could worsen tonsil stones. These are mineralized deposits in the tonsillar crevices exacerbated by chronic nasal/throat inflammation. Warm salt water gargle may help. It may be more helpful to determine what is causing the inflammation to begin with and a virtual consult or with Allergist can help. ...Read more
