Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
It does sound like cold allergy. But I would want to know what medicines you have tried already before giving my opinion.

Patient replied :

Hello doctor,
Thank you for your reply. The medicine what i taken, was long back before more than 1 month, i don't remember it's name, but it was a very small size tablet, sorry i really don't recalling the name of tablet.
it's my request to you, please advise me and help me as you understod my problem. I really fed up with this cold problem.

Recurrent cold can be a sign of a chronic sinusitis problem, as sometimes the sinuses get blocked due to repeated infections, and the only symptom is post nasal drip as well as recurrent cold.
I will advise you a course of Tab. Montelukast-Levocetirizine 10 mg, once daily for a period of one week, and if it still does not resolve, you should get a CBC, ESR and CT SCAN of the para nasal sinuses and follow-up with me,

Patient replied :

Hello Doctor, Thank you for your valuable advise, i will sure take the tab as you mentioned. I need to ask you, should i take some other precausion like, drinking water, food or anything.
i am living in bangalore, india. and weather in bangalore is cool and little bit child compare than other city of india, so please advise if i have to take any other precausion for this problem.

Unfortunately, allergies can be avoided only if if do not expose yourself to the environmental triggers like cold or dust.
Kindly try the course and let me know as it will help desensitise you to the allergens.
