Any antihistamine medication do make the human body dry up!

Was it allergy testing identified "dust mite"?

The best thing is to keep a food diary and also the home environment diary, process of elimination can help. Fresh veg and fresh fruits do give reaction at different time of the year.


Many thanks for your answer, a food diary haven't heard about that and no proper diagnose only my G P believing it was, hospital thought it was asthma a year or so ago , I think it may b something to do with the Christmas tree which isn't a real one perhaps it's dusty ! Thanks
