Hello, I have both asthma and perennial allergic rhinitis. I use inhalers for the asthma but Iam unable to use steroid nasal spray for the rhinitis as I also have glaucoma b
and the steroid sprays cause a rise in pressures. I have been told that I am a steroid responder. I am wondering how you deal with colds and flu as well. I dread getting a cold as the symptoms are much worse and I usually get a choking cough which lasts for a long time. My asthma is generally mild but it is the rhinitis that gets me down. I have one sneezing fit aday which is always followed by postnasal drip and have to deal with loads of mucus in the throat which I have trouble clearing. I can only take antihistamines for it and they don't really help that much. I dobuse salt water spray which You can buy. If anyone can tell me how they cope with a cold on top of rhinitis I would be grateful. Any tips or things you do to help the cold go away. Many thanks.
