Hmmm-the asthma-- maybe that's why I still have even after doing allergy drops, nasal spray and allegra. I do find that a nettie pot works good to flush the gunk out. I do always use boiled, distilled water, just to make sure no bacteria or parasites find there way into my sinuses. My doctor just says I have "sticky mucus", which sounds as disgusting as it is.....View Thread
Just in case you ONLY did the blood test, it is NOT accurate! I had it years ago, and was negative even tough I had horrible allergy symptoms. Then 5 years ago, I had the skin testing done and showed tons of allergies. Then my insurance changed and my allergist was not on plan find new one, so had to go to ENT on my plan, and he did not do the skin tests at the time, so did the blood test, even though I told him that it was obviously not that accurate, since I had before and showed negative, only to show numerous ones with the skin testing. Again, the blood test showed NO ALLERGIES----yet I knew that I had numerous allergies, so after he had added the skin testing, which they then did, and were surprised with how many showed up. SO, anyone still having symptoms of allergies, but ONLY did the blood test, find an allergist or ENT to do the skin testing. Only thing is, is that you have to stop all antihistamines for about 10 days before the tests, or it can make the skin testing inaccurate also.View Thread
