Sinus / hayfever
I have permanent hayfever which is causing my sinusse to enflame. I am basicly allegic to dust / dustmites / pollin / grass. Also whenever I drink/eat dairy products I also start to sneeze and have found a lot of mucus build up. Then I sit with this headache right behind my eyes and on my forehead and underneath my eyes then I usually go to the dr to get antibiotics. The stuff coming out of my nose is a nice brite green/yellow. What I want to know is what can I take to decrease the hayfever on a permanent basis so that I don't have to go to the doctor so much. This is usually throughout the year but obviously worse in spring.

Hi Zelna
Sniff and rinse your nose with saline twice a day to get rid of all the phlegm - you can buy this at the pharmacist or make your own with boiled cooled down water 1 cup and 1/2 tsp salt. Use luke warm. Try using Beconase aquous nosespray twice a day and Loratidine at night.
