Hello doctor,

I am a 45 year old female. I have chronic allergies, which become worse in winter. What can I do, so that I do not need to take anti-allergic medications?



Welcome to

The allergic symptoms usually aggravate during winter season. It continues from November till February based on the climate in your place.

You have not mentioned about the allergic site (nose or lung or skin). If it is nose or lung, the dryness due to winter can trigger the allergic response in nose. In this situation, you need to maintain moisture by just applying a drop of coconut oil in each nostril before going to bed.

On the other hand, you can apply a drop of Anu Thailam (an ayurvedic nasal drops for allergy) in each nostril before going to bed.

During evenings and nights, when it is too cold, you need to protect your ears (by keeping cotton plug), nose (by applying oil drops), head (by covering head with a woolen cap) and hands and feet (by wearing gloves and socks). The external cold stimulus triggers the allergic response. So, prevent yourself from the cold stimulus to avoid allergy.

If you have allergic asthma, then it is better to practice pranayama and yoga. Breathing exercises will help you.

If you have allergic skin disorder, then you can use vaseline or vegetable oils to gently apply on the skin. This helps in overcoming the dryness due to the cold climate. The skin manifestation should also be examined by a physician to decide the proper medication.
