Do these symptoms sound like an allergy?

0

I’ve been sneezing excessively and have been experiencing a blocked nose, irritated ears and itchy throat. I’ve been taking cough medicine, but it doesn’t seem to be working.  I have head aches, chest pain and dry irritated itchy skin. Do these symptoms sound like an allergy or should I be looking at other possible explanations?

Hi there,

Thanks for your question. When an allergen enters the body, the immune system kicks in to counter to the effects. In most cases, the immune system produces histamine, which causes the symptoms typically associated with allergies and hay fever:

– Headaches
– Sneezing
– Watery or itchy eyes
– Nasal congestion
– Scratchy throat
