Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Thanks for this excellent question.

I'm sorry you are having this problem.

I need to gather more information in order to give you the best answer possible.

How old are you?

Any other health problems?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I am 52 years old and have been going through the change since approx 44 years old. I normally take besastine as and when I need it and usually last year and year before take sainsburys one a day allegy and hayfever relief 10 mg tablets loradine which normally work. I swopped this to the becanise nasal spray and have been taking Bethastine tables 3 times daily to make sure my ears dont get affected by hayfever.


I do not have fever just get flushed with my hormones.


I did do some gardening on last sunday so my back ache could be to do with this, but my sides hurt as well. I put ibrofen gel on my back and that night was very sick for most of the night.


I had small rash on my lower arm this morning which has now gone and very tired as not sleeping very well at night.

Thanks Anne.

I think your regimen is good but clearly something else is going on here.

Nose bleeds and back ache is unusual with allergies.

I am worried about an infection of some sort.

It could be a viral infection. That can cause this.

Something like meningitis or a kidney stone should also be considered but this wouldn't really explain a nose bleed.

I do like your medicines though. It is a good combination

I hope this helps.

If you have more questions, just reply. :)
