Avatar f tn These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications. Exposure to allergens causes a runny nose with a resultant post nasal drip where secretions from the nose go backward into the throat and irritate causing cough. Cough is a protective mechanism by the body as it helps to prevent infections. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.
Avatar n tn I've had a runny nose and cough for two months, along with a sore throat off and on (more on than off). No congestion. No sinus pain. No ear problems. Continuous symptoms, not a day in two months without. It started with a bad cold I had caught, and these particular symptoms never went away. Spring/summer is in full swing now, and my first guess would be that it's allergies, but I've never had this problem before. Itchy eyes and throat, yes, but not this.
Avatar f tn She keeps having to clear her throat. She does not have runny nose, does not have a cough, no symptoms of being sick at all. Her doctor said nothing in her throat and to encourage fluids. I have tried Benedryl, Children's Cleratin, cough meds, even just simple honey with warm water. Nothing seems to keep those constant clearing of throat at ease. Doc says maybe she has formed a habit. which to some extent seems true as when I keep reminding her, she would stop for a few minutes.
Avatar n tn Sneezing Runny or stuffy nose Cough and postnasal drip Itchy eyes, nose and throat Watery eyes The problem, I am have with the symptons of mols is it did not give me enough information.
Avatar n tn A few days afterwards, I started to get flu-like symptoms (runny nose, throat pain, white mucus discharge from the throat, joint pain, and a low grade fever - about 37 degrees celcius). This lasted for about three weeks, however, the symptoms that I had never really went away.. I still had mucus in my nose and there was a large presence of phlegm in my throat which forced me to clear it very often.
Avatar m tn it is a dry cough for the most part with a little bit of phlegm, but I am also having on and off cold symptoms (runny nose with clear mucus, sneezing). some of the coughing fits have gotten so bad that I have not been able to breathe and almost thrown up. it doesn't seem to be getting better with time and I am getting tired of coughing. what could this be?
Avatar f tn Should I be concerned or does it just sound like a common cold. Haven't had one in along time! Oh amd somewhat of a runny nose. Nose bleed last night and have a crappy cough.
Avatar m tn But each summer for the last two summers, my eyes, nose, throat and lungs burn - especially I think when the AC goes on. No runny nose or sneezing or itchy eyes. It just burns. Like the AC lubricant or freon or radon or something else? No one else in the family feels it either! Oh and my lymph nodes swell up, too. Last winter though, it went away and I was fine for months. Then it started to get warm and it came back just as strong. I can hardly stand to be in the house.

Avatar m tn i have performed oral sex on my girlfriend and now i'm wondering if that may cause some throat infection i feel like i'm currently having. at first it was just an itchy throat with coughs but now it seems just like the flu, complete with runny & stuffy nose. so at first i was worried it might be the oral but now i'm wondering if i was just worrying a bit too much. is there any way an infection from oral sex would present flu-like symptoms?
Avatar m tn The primary symptom of rhinitis is a runny nose along with sneezing, watering of the eyes, congestion of the nose and itchy nose, throat, eyes, and ears. You are right in saying that steam inhalation is beneficial in rhinitis. Along with steam inhalation, you can take nonsedating antihistamines like cetirizine (Zyrtec) or loratadine (Claritin).Moreover decongestants and topical decongestants may help in reducing congestion of the nose.
Avatar f tn But it has other associated signs and symptoms such as cough, runny nose, inflamed eyes, sore throat, fever and a red, blotchy skin rash. Hives or urticaria causes red and sometimes itchy rash on the body such as face, neck, trunk, arms, and legs and perhaps anywhere on the body. They are usually allergic (food, medication and insect stings) but may also be due to infections and stress. Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found.
1672514 tn?1304516514 My face and neck have been itchy and burning for a week now, usually this only happens when I pet a cat and then touch my face, I am not sure if it has to do with my use of Proactiv, I have used proactiv for years, I thought maybe the acid and living in Florida doesnt mix well, I also have a runny nose and it feels like my nasal passage is swollen... any one know what I can do to get rid of this?? Its very annoying to constantly be itching all day and night!!
Avatar m tn I developed cold symptoms about 2 weeks ago, starting with a sore throat, then a stuffy nose, and then a slight "itchy" cough. The cough subsided within 4 days, and the stuffy nose practically subsided, but I STILL have a sore throat. It seems to act up at night the most, and during the day it almost goes away to the point where I feel perfectly fine.
Avatar f tn Im a male in my early 20s and I've always had hayfever but this year it's been worse than normal, apparently due to higher pollen levels this year. I mainly get a runny nose, itchy eyes and sneeze alot. With this, I've had a dry ticklish/sore throat with a feeling of mucus there for about a month. When i looked, i had multiple round red bumps, what looked like granular pharyngitis, in the back of my throat.
Avatar n tn who told me there is a nerve in the roof of my mouth, or maybe the throat I can't remember, that for some people gets stimulated when one eats or drinks and can trigger a runny nose or even post nasal drip. If that is true then the more it drips, the more I swallow hard, the more it drips. I have tried eating painfully slow, chewing my food for a long time and taking smaller bites and it does seem to lessen the effect, but it still drips.

675923 tn?1296241611 I have dry itchy eyes, runny nose, headache and sometimes a scratchy throat. This year I am experiencing a burning sensation in my lungs and throat along with shortness of breath. Has anyone else had this experience? I am thinking that this is a new symptom of allergies OR asthma. I have never been diagnosed with asthma. I quit smoking three months ago but did not experience these symptoms even while smoking. Thank you in advance for your comments.
Avatar n tn Today it has spread to the right side of my face, chin eye and inside of my throat. The inside of my nose also burns now. It is really beginning to be uncomfortable. My face and nose feels cold to the touch, but from the inside is on fire!
Avatar f tn My last doctor sent me to an allergy specialist/immunologist and it turned out I'm pretty much allergic to every environmental substances (which usually cause the typical sneezing, watery/itchy eyes, runny nose). I've tried taking Clariton, Allegra, Reactine but they do not work for the throat swelling. I also tried Cortisone inhalers and nasal sprays and had no luck. I'm sick of going to the doctors and having them look at me like I'm crazy or just giving me more antibiotics.
1083321 tn?1256275912 One possible cause is an allergic reaction to a birth control pill I started taking on Sunday (10/18/09), but it's been about five days since then and I haven't felt anything else unusual. The symptoms of the cold I have are mild sore throat, runny nose, cough, fatigue, and mild upset stomach. I took an antihistamine and used lotion on my skin an hour ago, and neither have had much effect. I am 17 years old and female. Thanks for any feedback!
Avatar f tn Over 30 times popped. I feel delusional at times and runny nose to yuck! now, my neck and shoulders are killing me. Dust is MAYBE, one of many probs,smoke bbq smoke worst!! HELP ME. AMOX DIDNT FIX 5mnths ago, im sick
Avatar n tn Consulted ENT again he stopped antibiotics and prescribed some pottasium/sodium tablets, diarrhea, neck/back pain, severe fatigue & sore throat, spoungy nose. Day 23: Had very itching & pricking red bump on stomach, continous diarrhea, fatigue, sore throat & spoungy nose.
Avatar f tn A couple of weeks ago I had a sore throat that later turned into a cough and runny nose. I lost my voice for s few days. Throughout the course of these symptoms I developed dry red patches on my stomach area that later became itchy. After a few days the patches spread to my side and arms. I never felt bad like I had a cold but still had the cough and runny nose as well as these rashes.
Avatar f tn It is not painful what so ever. It's red and inflamed back in my throat and there are obvious red spots on throat. Sometimes white builds ups on there. Sometimes I will get a rash that comes up for a few minutes then go away. Those are the only symptoms I can think of. The doctor tested for strep and it was negative. I do have seasonal allergies and was wondering why I have a sore throat for so long. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn I did have a cold a couple days ago (sneezing, runny nose, sore throat). I have had joint pains but I had them for many years now. The last time I was HIV tested (in March) it came back negative. UPDATE: I have formed 2 more bumps on my buttocks, one is big and painful like a pimple with no puss.
Avatar f tn Also I always used to have a naturally runny nose and blocked sinuses and now it just feels scarily clear and there seems to be very little mucous production. I looked in my nostrils at the beginning of the week and noticed how red and raw the membrane over the septum area is. I rushed to my doctor who sent me to an ent. The ent says there is no septal perforation and that the membranes look really inflamed.
Avatar n tn I don't seem to have any other connected symptoms, no watery itchy eyes or runny nose. It does seem my nose gets dry in the morning and sometimes can't breath through my nose because it is so blocked, but it isn't runny. As a young child I used to get many ear infections (not sure if that is relavant). I'm thinking it is either a food allergy (milk suspected) or post nasal drip? What things can I try to narrow it down?
