-- It is a very common sight where people suffer from running nose, have watery eyes or have pain in the ear. Some consider that these are all symptoms of a person catching cold or are being affected by the change in weather. However, in reality there are times when they are the symptoms of allergic rhinitis or ear infection. In such situations, people often try to avoid going to the doctor but when the problem persists or becomes more serious they eventually do. Now there is a much better way of treating these problems and it is in the form of over the top counter medications and they are quite good and provide relief to the sufferer in a very short time.
The medication that provides relief in cases of seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis is in the form of syrup. The main ingredient is Loratadine and it helps in recovering from problems like running nose, sneezing, watery eyes and itching. The ingredient is also useful in case of itching or formation or rashes that are caused due to insect bites or pox. The medicine works by preventing release of histamine, which if released causes a chain reaction that leads to different problems. Histamine is stored in a type of body cell known as the mast cells and they are released when foreign particles like dust, dirt, insect venoms or pollens enter through the nose, the cells releases the histamine. This component then gets attached to the receptors and triggers different reactions in the body that leads to the symptoms. Loratadine works by blocking any further release of this ingredient and thus provides relief to the sufferer. An adult can take about two spoonful of the medicine and children can take one spoonful to get relief. It can be taken with or without food, but a woman should always consult a doctor before taking the Clarityn (http://www.medicines2u.com/clarityn-allergy-syrup-5mg-5ml...)
syrup if she is pregnant or is breastfeeding.
Many people often suffer from pain in the ear that is caused due to otitis media and otitis externa. Nowadays ear drops are available that contain an ingredient called choline salicylate and it reduces the pain caused due to inflammation. Another constituent of the drop is glycerol and it helps in removal of the ear wax, that when gets accumulated causes pain. Ear wax is a type of section type produced by the ears and it forms a thin layer on the eardrums and protects it. The problem occurs when too much of wax gets accumulated and then it hinders in proper hearing and also causes pain. In such cases the drop comes as a big help as it softens the wax and them removes it. The medicine also has another big advantage and it is that it doesn’t have any side effects. The Earex (http://www.medicines2u.com/earex-plus-ear-drops-10ml.html)
drop also doesn’t have any reaction with other medicines and thus it can be used by all.
