    Anyone suffer from non-allergic rhinitis ???

    I have been told this is what I have.  I had sinus polyps removed three times already.  I have suffered with this for over a decade.  I seem to react to stong odors or smells that others barely notice.  I showed no allergies on the scratch test inlcuding a mold test.  Yet the last three office buildings I have worked in have aggravated the condition.  Yet outdoor things like pollen have no effect on me. Anyone know of any treatments other than the usual stuff.  I have already used flonase, saline spray, sudafed, hepa filters and more.

    The problem with scratch tests is they can't test you for chemical allergies. Carpets have formaldyhyde in them, as well as latex backings, and synthetic fibers, which maybe what you are allergic too. As you walk across them, they become airbourne. Smells are probably invisable offenders, such as plastics, and gases that are normal for any building. Open a window, if possible. We are bombarded daily by chemicals, additives, and gases. The trick is to get your immune system to calm down. Beta glucan has that ability. It is derived from oats. Start off with a low dose such as 3mg, as long as you aren't allergic to oatmeal. … an+solaray
    If it truly is allergies Seagate makes a nasal spray containing grapefruit seed extract and olive leaf extract, an excellent product. I use to have sinus infections
    on a regular basis, but now no longer plagued with them, and allergic rhinitis. Do not combine with any other medicine, whether prescription or over the counter, as grapefruit seed increases the strength of medications, and can result in overdose.
    Another awesome product is QBC. Quercitin, bromelain, complex, by douglas labs, a natural antihistamine.

      Thanks, I noticed that this started when I began working in an office without operable windows.  Fortunately I am moving my office to one that does have them.
