Does anyone have these symptoms?

I have ear pressure, that are red and inflammed with fluid and sinus congestion. Head pressure and dizzy to the point I get nauseated. Does anyone else get this from allergies? I am desperate to find an answer to this. I tried allergy pills, nothing worked. I am currently starting Augmentin for the ear infections. Thank you, Michelle

Re: Does anyone have these symptoms?

Those could be allergy symptoms. And it might take a few tries to find an allergy medicine that works. Plus, once your symptoms get bad, it can take a couple weeks for allergy medicine to really start working!

Sudafed could probably provide faster relief, although antihistamines are more effective in the end. A steroid or antihistamine nasal spray could also help.

Getting you allergies under control should help lessen infections...unless they are causedby some other condition such a bad tonsils (that was my issue for years till I had them out). You could also use a saline rinse like NeilMed daily and that should keep your sinuses clear of any bacteria that could start an infection. If you aren't seeing an allergist, I suggest you do.

Re: Does anyone have these symptoms?

Thank you for your replies. I cant take sudafed cause I have a heart condition but I can take antihistamibes which we will try when the infection shows some improvement. I never knew dizziness or ear congestion were symptoms of allergies. Any ideas what kind of allergy triggers are out on August?

Ragweed season generally starts sometime in August, depending on where you live. Check a local pollen count to see if yours has started yet.
