I have suffered with mould and cat allergies for the last 10 years (diagnosed only in last year) resulting in chronic rhinitis. I have a level of reaction currently all year, but the months of Aug-Feb are horrendous. I have to come home and sleep straight after work to get through the next day, and sleep/rest all weekend to get through the next week.
I have swollen nasal lining, facial migraine, burning, itching nose. But no real mucous or running, just the feeling of chronic swelling and pressure - constantly.
Because it's not life threatening it's not considered severe, but wholly effects my quality of life.
I've tried most things; OTC antihistamines, natural nasal sprays, steroid nasal sprays, antihistamine nasal sprays, betamethasone, naproxen (anti inflammatory), fexofenadine, migraine medicines... the list goes on.
Has anyone tried anything effective, other than the usual, for mould allergies?
Has anyone had immunotherapy? Is there anywhere good for this either NHS or privately in the UK?
I'm desperate to find something that works now...
