i have Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis is there is any probleme if i buy a dog?

plz hlp me ......................thank for all your answers
HOW CAN I know if i have allergic from dogs???????
plzzzzzzzzzzz helppppp meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Seasonal allergic rhinitis is just that - it's not a dog allergy. However, if you have a history of allergies (or even just a family history), get tested before you buy a dog. They also say that some breeds are less allergic than others. Make sure you do your homework.

Good luck!  (+ info)

What is the best cure for allergic rhinitis?

What is the best way to prevent fits of allergic rhinitis especially if you live in a tropical country like the Philippines?

first of all, take vitamin c daily or eat citrus fruits and vegetables to help boost your immune system... if you have allergic rhinitis, avoid eating seafoods i.e. crabs, mussels, lobsters (anything that has shells) because it could worsen the allergic reaction... also, know the source of your allergies (pollen, dust, season) and avoid it if possible... always maintain cleanliness at home, also, if possible, change pillowcases or bedsheets (or anything that can "gather" allergens) weekly....
if you want to cure it by means of medication, antihistamines are the perfect choice...  (+ info)

What nasal spray would you recommend for allergic rhinitis?

My doctor prescribed me one, but it is not covered by my insurance and it's shockingly high in price (almost $90 - 30 gramms) Is there any good,price affordable nasal spray for allergic rhinitis?

Thank you

The worst part of the summer is nasal allergies. There are four options to help address nasal rhinitis. Antihistamines, steroids, topical decongestants, and degranulation inhibitors.

I'm sure the pharmaceutical reps got your doctor to prescribe everyone the latest and greatest nasal steroid, such as Flonaze. This is an option to "smack down" your immune system in your nasal passage and mellow out the inflammatory response, but there can be serious consequences regarding blood vessel integrity and headaches. It might be good short term, but not long term.

There is only one nasal antihystamine available, and that is Astelin. This works well, but can also be pricey.

Topical decongestants are not usually recommended for frequent use due to the "rebound effect."

Straight flushing of your nasal passage a couple times a day helps reduce irritants and mellow out allergies. This is done with a cheap saline solution. At a minimum, you should do this before you go to bed and when you get up.

What I have used mostly is called Chromalyn. This is sold as Naso-Chrom. This acts very differently than any of the other medications. Rather than competing with released histamine to stop rhinitis symptoms, it actually stops the release of histamine to begin with. The key to this medication is to take it before your allergies get really bad. So, taking it 10-15 minutes before you anticipate exposure to allergens (such as going outside), is more effective than anti-histamines. This is about $15 for a bottle.

For the most effective relieve, you should stagger your approach with multiple, inexpensive treatments. So, you should take a 24-hour antihistamine (Walmart sells 60 tabs for $15) for baseline relief, pre-treatment with Naso-Chrom for expected exposures, and saline sprays to help flush allergens out of nasal passage periodically. In the end, this will cost you less than $1/day. And, you are less likely to have crazy side-effects from steroids.  (+ info)

I am 35 years old. I have been suffering from allergic rhinitis from last 5 years. What type of treatment s?

I am 35 years old. I have been suffering from allergic rhinitis . What type of treatment should be taken to recover myself from it? Kindly suggest me some alternative therapy treatment.

avoidance is the gold standard but you would need to be tested to see what your triggers are. If there are too many then my first line treatment is intranasal steroid sprays. I choose these because they actually block the inflammation that occurs when an allergic reaction is triggered rather than just negating the effects of histamine, which is like shooting the cow after it has escaped the barn, instead of making sure the gate doesn't come open. Good adjuncts include HEPA filters on your HVAC unit at home and nasal saline rinses. Good luck!  (+ info)

Any chronic sufferers of Allergic Rhinitis out there?

Does anyone have really bad allergic rhinitis with a post nasal drip that isn't really relieved by medication? What did your doctor do for you? I went to a ear nose throat doctor a couple weeks ago and he gave me a medrol dose pack and it's not doing anyytthinggg for me. What kind of problems do you have and how do you handle them?

I've had post nasal drip for the last 25-30 years, and medications haven't really helped much. I've tried all kinds of pills, syrups, sprays, to pretty much no effect. I'd wake up with thick gobs of mucus coating my throat and spend an hour or two trying to hack it up every day. The best thing I've found to deal with it has been a sinus rinse kit, it's something that I wish I'd known about years ago, it would have saved me a lot of money and aggravation.

The sinus rinse or cleansing kits come in different styles, some are called netti pots and look like a coffee pot. They use gravity to get the salt water through your sinuses. I'm using a squeeze bottle type that you can gently spray the water up your nose to flush your sinuses.

Ya, I know it sounds messed up, shooting saline water up your nose, but it helps flush out allergens, dust, and built up/excess mucus. Since using it I've been able to breathe out of both nostrils for the first time in as long as I can remember, I am damned impressed. The kit costs about $12 and you can get then at pharmacies or places like Walmart.  (+ info)

what is the best medicine for allergic rhinitis?

i am suffering from bad case of allergic rhinitis, am using claritin but that gives only temporary relief what is the best medicine for this?

You could try the use of Aloe Vera Gel by Forever Living Products. I've heard that this helps, but could take up to 12 months. in combination with the Aloe First also by FLP would be even better.
You can find out more about these products at www.keosam.com.
Note that these are not drugs, but natural food supplements that could help you, there are many expiriences where these products helped, so I recomend them to you.  (+ info)

My husband is suffering from a severe case of seasonal allergies. How can we find out what he is allergic to?

We've tried herbal remedies, i.e. grapeseed extract, allergic tonic and etc. However, they don't seem to be that effective. He's used Zyrtec in the past and it was helpful. I am wondering if allergy shots are the most effective way to combat allergies? I would appreciate any advice from fellow allergy sufferers. Thanks.

Your primarty care doc or an allergist can have a RAST test done. With one tube of his blood they will find out everything he is allergic to. It's a great tool to enable his doctor to prescribe him the appropriate medication. Allergy shots can help, but they still have to know exactly what he is allergic to before he can start that treatment.

You do become immune to your allergy medicine. I use Claritin one year and Zyrtec the next. Right now I'm taking Singulair (pill form, not inhaler) and it works great. Next Spring I might have to go back to Allegra if the Singulair quits working for me. It's a pain, but eventually you learn how to deal with all of it and find the right medications you can rotate.

I did allergy shots but we moved cross country and I need to go through all my blood work and testing again. In the meantime I'm just taking pills, but the shots did work well for me.

Hope he gets some relief soon, and that he's not too miserable. I know it can be horrible and I'm sure it's wrecking your nerves to see him having a hard time. It'll get better with the right medication, just you wait and see.  (+ info)
