: : Does anyone out there take Claritin and or Nasonex for a mold allergy? Do they help? Thanks!
: I have mould allergy and dust mite allergy - and have lived in some very dusty and mouldy places. So when I get itchy eyes, a runny nose and wheeziness at home, I don't know which of these allergies is primarily responsible. Anyway, Clarityn helps, as should any antihistamine tablet (I've never heard of Nasonex - is it a nose spray?). A steroid nose spray and asthma spray should help too. The symptoms and treatment as far as I understand allergy are the same as with any airborne allergy to animals or grasses. Hope this helps.
See an ENVIRONMENTAL ALLERGIST, (find a name on the internet). The testing and treatment are different and 100 times more efective than tradional allergists. Worked for me.
