Hi, question has RD anything to do with allergies?
Symptoms : sneezing coughing wheezing & iching
History : 5 years ago I was (bar a serious accident) very healthy. Then all sorts of weird things started happening, to cut a long story short I have RD OA Inflammatory A & palindromic rheumatism. My body doesn't tolerate pills very well so I can't take painkillers. I've had two steroid injections which were terrific but didn't last very long. So I only take hydroxy.
Anyway about that time I found out I couldn't wear mascara ( ended up looking like I'd done 10 rounds with a boxer) then lipstick ( blisters) then face makeup then shampoo etc.. in the meantime I would have sneezing fits constant running nose. Eight weeks ago I caught a cold it was nasty & I ended up with me in bed for a couple of days but since then I've felt so unwell, blocked nose sneezing coughing (dry) itchy throat & so so tired. Went to the docs sinus infection antibiotics given made no difference went back saline drops given. Due back to see him on Tuesday. But I reckon it isn't an infection but an allergy which may be connected with RD. If anyone is still reading I'd appreciate your wise thoughts before I go back pls 🎄
