Our expert says:
It sounds very much like you have chronic hay fever with post-nasal drip. This is the commonest cause of persistent cough in those with allergies. I know you stopped the Flomist. I would suggest you talk to your GP and ask him to consider prescribing Mometasone nasal spray 1 puff/daily in each nostril. You will have to find a nasal steroid that you can tolerate. The next question is why are you not tolerating nasal steroids? This is unusual. Did an ENT have a look to see whether you have polyps? You also need to try 3 or 4 different types of antihistamines to see what works for you to dry out your nasal passages.
