Hi, I am a 24 year old woman. For the last few years I have been suffering from constant sinus headaches and pressure, swelling and mucus. I have been told its allergies to the environment, food and just a cold. But I have been looking farther into it and I have noticed its not environmental allergies because its not consistent with the weather or season. I have noticed some foods that make it worse like Milk, yogurt, cheese, so I avoid them. Could someone please make this a little more clear for me. Why are my sinus constantly inflamed and full of mucus? Please help?

  • Well I don't know how much help I will be, but I have the same thing. I have environmental allergies and also food allergies. I am allergic to dairy products and have to stay away from them. I don't know where you live, where I am from I have horrible allergies all year round. Also just going to the next town I would start getting the conjestion. You could very well be allergic to some things that are in your house, like me. I also can't handle a lot of purfumes, or soaps sometimes the smell of certain foods. So I take allegra d, wich keeps my sinus' from getting bad. Singular, which is for asthma but also for hayfever, I also have an inhaler, for my asthma attacks, which are sometimes brought on by my allergies. The d in allegra d, is a dicongestant. It is however only presribed by a doctor, so if you can get on some pills, try that one.

  • I am not a doctor, but you symptoms looks like an allergy. In case of an allergy it is very important to know the allergen, the substance that causes your allergic reaction. Because avoiding allergen is the best remedy. Have you tried any allergy medications? If your sinus problems are attributed to allergic reaction then medications may be effective. Antihistamines (eg. Allegra D, Claritin) are most commonly used to relieve the symptoms of allergy. Nasal corticosteroids (eg. Flonase) may be helpful to relive nasal symptoms. If you don't want to take medications you may try natural remedies (eg. AllergiClear).

  • singulair made my symptoms worse too. zyrtec was so drying that i got a dry rash (eczema) and couldn't take showers. i'm taking piriton now which is chlorphenamine alone. i switched from flonase to nasonex and i found the latter is better at clearing congestion though changes in weather still seem to have a big effect on me. hope this helps.

  • generic flonase Spray is utilized for handling of allergic and nonallergic nasal indications together with blocking, runny nose, burning, and sneezing. cheap flonase is approve to treat indications due to any allergies identified as allergic rhinitis or other reasons recognized as non-allergic rhinitis. If you are pregnant and planning to become pregnant then buy flonase only after your's doctor's permission.
