Discussions that mention claritin

General Health board

Do you think there is a chance that what you are calling a cold is actually allergies? It would be pretty unusual for a cold to last a couple of months. Another possibility would be that you started with a cold (or allergies) and developed a sinus infection. What color is the mucous when you blow your nose?

If you have a post-nasal drip (mucus draining down the back of your throat) from allergies, that could be causing your cough, etc. You could try an over-the-counter allergy medicine like Claritin.

If you are running a fever or have increasing difficulty breathing, you should consult an MD!
