I have chronic allergic rhinitis but the past week my usual loratadine just hasn't been working- had almost been over a cold and thought maybe a new one starting- coughing every few minutes from constant drainage. Was able to control cough only with chlorpheneramine (CTM) (for only 4 hours each 4 mg though) or constant menthol drops past few days. Got up 2 am few nights ago and showered (wash hair of allergens); that and a CTM helped me until morning. Yesterday vacuumed bedroom; no definite change though a bag full of dust/hair! Today I finally found (I'm a bit unobservant) the preHalloween gourds had one of them totally turned into a mold bag in the shape of a gourd. SInce I took that out to the compost heap haven't needed another CTM. Hope that is the end of it... and will keep all fruit/veg /other possibly molding items under careful scrutiny.
