Can I use baby vic ok my 61/2 month old she very congested sneezing coughing?

OK to use: I would not put the vick's on baby's skin directly, but if you want to put a little in the humidifier or on their jammies, that's ok. The Vicks doesn't cure anything, but may help the congestion a little bit. Be more cautious if your child has asthma - sometimes the strong scent can make their asthma symptoms flare up a bit. Use nose saline drops to clear the nasal congestion at that age. ...Read more

I have seasonal allergies, I take Qnasl. But am still sneezing. Added on azelastine nasal, in which order should I use these meds?

Nasal sprays: These sprays have different mechanisms of action in treating allergic rhinitis and can be used once or twice a day without interactions. However I recommend spacing them out so that an interval of an hour or so transpires before using the other spray. Your pharmacist can be very helpful in instructing you on using these sprays. ...Read more

I'm going to be in highschool where everyone uses perfume and I perfume allergy. Can I get used to itchy skin and sneezes everyday? It won't be bad.

See doctor: You may try taking antihistamine or even better a prescription nasal spray on a regular basis to make your nose less sensitive. If these products do not help. You should consider seeing an allergist to get desensitized. Perfume does not cause an allergic reaction without skin contact although the scent may irritate your nose. In case of skin contact, try some hydrocortisone cream on the skin ...Read more

I'm useing Vicks nose spray and everytime I use it I start sneezing but it gets rid of my stuffed nose. Why does this happen?

I'm useing Vicks nose spray and everytime I use it I start sneezing but it gets rid of my stuffed nose. Why does this happen?

It's an irritant: Any nose spray can make you sneeze, even if it's a prescription. It just means the nose has been stimulated with something it finds a little obnoxious. You don't want to use vick's for longer than 3 to 5 days, it will start to make your nasal tissue swollen. Then you will need to use the Vicks to treat the problem with the vicks. We call this rebound, or rhinitis medicamentosa. ...Read more

Every time there is a fan on. I get blocked nose. Only in spring season. If I use spray it start burning and might get sneezing a lot. Plz any solution?

Cool mist humidifier: A common cause of congestion during spring and summer months (since it is now nearly spring to our Southern Hemisphere friends) is dry air. Fans dry out your nasal mucosa, leading to congestion. Try a saline nasal spray every few hours, to keep the mucosa moist. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Stuffy nose, headache, slight fever is this sinus or cold? Last yr prescribed levofloxacin, what over the counter meds can I use? Occasionally sneeze

Viral illness versus allergies: This time of the year you may have a viral illness or allergies'. The symptoms could be the same. The low-grade fever may be due to nasal obstructions. I recommend you try some over-the-counter medications such as Zyrtec and over-the-counter nasal steroids, which will help reduce the swelling in the nasal lining. If this continues to be a problem over the next 3 to 4 days, I highly suggest your your PCP for further evaluation and treatment. I do not feel that you need antibiotics at the present time. ...Read more

Rhinitis 8 yrs, IgE 867, use many antihistamines, allergy shots, nasal sprays. Sinusitis after stoppage of sneezing. How to stop all this? Is hormonal cause?

Rhinitis 8 yrs, IgE 867, use many antihistamines, allergy shots, nasal sprays. Sinusitis after stoppage of sneezing. How to stop all this? Is hormonal cause?

2nd opinion: I presumed you have had a workup by an allergist who has instructed you on the proper technique on the nasal spray and you have followed the instructions on avoidance measures. Have you tried Dymista or singulair (montelukast) yet? And yes, hormone can affect nasal congestion being most evident in some women during pregnancy. I would seek a 2nd opinion from another allergist if symptoms remain uncontrolled. ...Read more

Do I have the flu or walking pneumonia? I been coughing/phlegm and sneezing/wheezing. Headaches/coughing. I use my albuterol inhaler/otc meds. Help me

Would need an exam..: To answer your question an exam and more history would be needed. At the very least it sounds like you have a viral URI or allergies. If you are requiring your albuterol more than every 4-6 hours or the symptoms are persisting or getting worse at all, make an appointment to be seen or a consult appointment here on healthtap to better determine if an in person doctor visit is needed. ...Read more

I at 32yrs. I have a sore throat for two days now with coughing and sneezing and runny nose. What can I use?

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
