So, searching to see if anyone has discovered a solution to the irritation in the nostril with sneezing problem. I'm slated to see an allergist, 3rd time in my life, shots did nothing before so I'm trying to avoid this appointment. Pricey, uncomfortable and time consuming. I've had the irritated "did a gnat fly up my nose" thing followed by constant sneezing, clear liquid pouring out of affected nostril, very lovely. It comes and goes, sometimes I'll have it several days in a row, then...poof...it goes away. I've gotten it at the beach, I started one night in a restaurant, I can find no rhyme or reason for a trigger. I've tried: netipot, current taking Flonase for about six-weeks, taking Rootology Breathe Free, even Afrin doesn't stop the sneezing. I don't do well with antihistamines, they just make me feel bad in a different way and don't help with the sneezing, anyhow. A recent trip to the ENT confirmed there are no polyps and although my septum is slightly deviated, doesn't seem to be a problem. I've had this constant problem for over a year but I will say, this summer it has gained momentum. I'm going to try acupuncture next. Thoughts? Anyone?
