I have non-allergic asthma, mild flare ups of egzema and Rhinitis. I'm in good health for my age, exercise routinely and take vitamin supplements. Last year, I moved to Seattle. I take Foradil daily for my asthma. At the beginning of the summer, I developed a respiratory infection. I had an asthma flare up which took 4 months to get under control (albuterol, prednisone, antibiotics). However, my dilemma lately is related to my sinuses. I've had multiple sinus infections over the last year. I think the last sinus infection has finally been eliminated due to my latest prescription (Augmentin). However, my sinuses are runny and/or congested like never before. This has been going on for 6 months. I've spent countless $$ on all the tests (xrays, allergy, etc..). Everything appears normal but I'm congested a lot. I've been taking Allegra-D 24 hour. However, periodically, I still need a strong dose of psuedoephed to breath at night (which I've never taken in my life). Most the time it gives me relief. Sometimes, I'm still stuffed up and I reach for the Advil too (will anything help). First, what can I do to gain better control of this problem? :confused: I think red wine may excasberate my sinus inflammation. And, I notice skiing causes my nose to run constantly. Second, should I consider a different approach to treating this problem? Should I take something while I'm skiing? Should I take antihistimines at all? Thanks for your advise. :)Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
