Help please from severe allergy sufferers

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am sending away a hair sample to test for food and environmental allergens in my house. I believe it's reaction to pet dander and dust mites. I have had cold and sometimes flu symptoms constant for months. I need to regularly take antibiotics as it often progresses to bronchitis. It's 2am and I'm up sneezing waiting for a tablet (demazin) to start to work so that I can try to get back to sleep. At 10pm I took 20ml of Benadryl mucus relief double action and 2 polarmine and used my Ventolin puffer.  Any suggestions of what treatment and medications have helped and what to use in the house would be greatly appreciated.

    I swear by Reactine (which is Ceitrizine, also marketed under the brand names Alatrol, Alerid, Alzene, Cetirin, Cetzine, Cezin, Histazine, Humex, Letizen, Reactine, Razene, Triz, Zetop, Zirtec, Zirtek, Zodac, Zyllergy, Zynor, Zyrlek, and Zyrtec among others).

    I also have the Ventolin puffer and have a severe allergy to peanuts for which I carry an EpiPen.

    I also like to use natural products and find oil of oregano to be very effective in combating bronchitis.
