Family history

Mother has a shortness of breath although is not on any active treatment. Grandmother (Fathers Mother) has brochial asthma for the last 35 years. Father has allergic rhinitis which gets worse in rainy season.

Problem description:
• No problems noted after the first two years of birth.
• In the third year after birth developed sneezing problems predominantly in the morning. He used to sneeze 20 times on average daily morning. The sneezing used to be accompanied by watery mucous. The mucous has no colour and no smell.
• Some homeopathic immune boosters were given (name unknown). This corrected the issue of running nose and sneezing reduced to ~10 times in the morning. But at the same time another problem got initiated.. He developed idiopathic urticaria (Hives). The hives problem continued for a period of about ten months(Oct 2006 to July 2007). He had to be given a dose of anti histamine every day(Allerid). There was parallel homeopathic treatment that was given. Finally he was relieved of urticaria with urtica urens 200.
• It seems as soon as the urticaria went away running nose and sneezing came back with a vengeance. It was earlier only in the morning but is now happening in the day as well although predominantly in the morning (~10 sneezes daily). Since Oct 2009 The patient has developed wheezing. He is currently on cortico inhaler to manage wheezing
