so sorry to hear that sarah, hope you get better soon.... big hug oo

hayfever season is bad, ive been the worse ever, anti-histimines, nasal rinse and nasal sprays are the order of the day!

could you ask your doctor if maybe the antis or pred could be causing your side effects on your trachy stoma (what is that by the way?!)

take care

kel xx


lol yeah nasal sprays, eye drops and antihistamines deffo on the menu, the tracheostomy is a tube in my neck where i breathe from- but the rashes are from an unknown allergy (pants) o well keep taking the meds and hope for the best lol



Hello Sarah,

Are you sensitive to anything like latex or the material that is used in the trache tube etc? That may cause rash and hence irritates skin, infections etc. There may be some infection on the inside which isn't healing and therefore reinfecting your lungs. I am just guessing here as never had a trache.

Hope this helps


PS Pollen is super strength this year! My cons had doubled my Singulair which has helped. May be worth asking about.


Hang in there Sarah, it's horrid when you get repeated chest infections and you feel like you're never off antibiotics and steroids. Sending you some strength to help raise your spirits. :-)
