I suffered from year round rhinitis all the years I lived in

Customer Question

I suffered from year round rhinitis all the years I lived in cork ireland. Runny and stuffy nose, especially in the mornings. I moved to the uk near london and it completely goes away. Then when back in ireland for few days it is back. Happens wherever I stay in cork. What could the allergen be? If pollen, then why get all year round the same. If dust mites, why dont I get it in uk?

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
It is probably not something like pollen or dust mites
It is something in the environment in Cork.
Check your house there and make sure it is nothing there.
Also, you could do formal allergy testing and see exactly what it is
It might not be something you can avoid.
