Sick of Sneezing!

Hey,
I'm going into my third week straight of non-stop sneezing, stuffy nose, and itchy eyes and nose. It's like no matter what i do, when i start sneezing, it doesnt stop for a while. I have no allergies, never have to anything. Ive looked around the house for things that have changed and I see nothing. Is three weeks normal for a summer cold?

You no doubt have inhalent allergies, that is, something in the air this time of year. Take an anahistamine and see if that helps.

Re: Sick of Sneezing!

I've been taking a childrens allergy liquid syrup for it, doesnt seem to work though. IS there any antihistamine that works good and has little side effects. Also, im terible with pills. I swallow and then choke every time.

Re: Sick of Sneezing!

Children meds are usually not strong enough for adults. Allegra or Zyrtec, both prescription work very well.

One way to take pills is to put water in your mouth, add pill, gulp water & pill at same time. This prevents pill from sticking to your mouth or throat and glides right down.
