Making your bedroom allergen free can help with the mornings but it won't help when you are out and about. Do you have hypo-allergenic covers for your pillows and mattress? Dust and dust mites are notorious for hiding in your mattress and pillows as well as curtains and carpet. By removing the carpet and curtains you can help eliminate the dust and dust mites. You can also try using a saline nose spray or a Netti pot to help clear your sinuses. The coughing and gagging may be from post nasal drip brought on by allergies.
