rhinitis allergy - was gone and came back

Hello,

Please help me. I have had rhinitis for 7 years. I am 31years old. It began like sneezing at first then sore throat, watery and itchy eyes, pain in ears that the wind would hurt, runny nose, constant sneezing. I was told I was allergic to dust and fungus, but I get this allergy in the mornings, whenever I wake up, at night, when temperature changes. I prefer cold weather because I get less allergies then.

At the beginning I took every week a different allergy medicine, but didn´t work the next week. Afterwards, I tried natural medicine, and it controlled the watery eyes and pain in my ears and sore throat but never the sneezing or runny nose.

I went to an homeopath 3 years ago, and I took some medicine which helped me only for 3 months. The allergy then came back. Sadly I don´t remember what he gave me but it was three different medicines. For the last 3 years I haven´t had any medicine and now my ears are hurting again, my throat is sore and my eyes are itchy. And I still have runny nose (no color) and sneezing.

I don´t know what to do anymore. Is there some kind of homeopathic medicine that could help me?

Hi,
thank you for the indications. But I have a question, I am so sorry but I drank 30min after the medicine today and I wonder if I should begin the process again? and how long should I wait, since you said I should only take 3 doses in 5 days.

I took Nux Vomica 200 for 3 days as oriented. I have experienced some mild improvement, less sneezing but still runny nose and pain in my ears and some kind of itchy throat. Also I can feel when the allergy is coming because my nose gets itchy now. My nose, ears and face also feel cold when the allergy is beginning, even if the weather is hot.

Hi. Yesterday was the last day of the dose of Lycopodium 200. I had a lot of pain in my right ankle, knee and my big toe, of of them in the right side. I also increased in the night my sneezing and runny nose. Now my two ears hurt, not only one.

Is it something wrong with the treatment? How long should I wait to see any improvement?
