Patient Comments: Chronic Rhinitis - Causes

What causes or triggers your case of post-drip or chronic rhinitis (for example, pollen, animal dander, other allergies)?

I am very allergic to bird feathers and was exposed to a couple of exotic birds for around an hour and immediately the post-drip started.

I use to be allergic to cats. My symptoms got really bad during allergy season. I was sent to a specialist where I was told that my sinuses were to blame. I have an air purifier and an air conditioner. I do have carpet. I'm allergic to every kind of pollen. I take fluticasone and loratadine. I miss living in the northwest where my allergies weren't a problem.

I have rhinitis and sinusitis, and now they seem to be getting worse. I can't stand, walk, or do any normal things in life without my nose pouring. If I lay or sit down, the mucous goes down the back of my throat and makes me gag. I can't sleep, and stay home from work because I work at a health center and deal with patients. I don't know what to do. I am on doxycycline, cetirizine, and rinse with salt water. It seems like nothing works.
