My son has asthma-like issues with wheezing, coughing, sneezing, itcy/red/watery eyes and appears to be allergic to dust, pollen, mold and pet dander. We don't have any pets and vacuum with a hepa-filter vacuum. However, the doctor has put him on Zyrtec and Nasonex and he's been coughing for two months with no relief even with the allergy meds. I thought he might have asthma or large adonoids, but the doctor doesn't think he has those issues. In addition, he wakes up twice during the night coughing or waking up crying and lightly snores at bedtime and naps. Does anyone have any suggestions of natural ways to help with allergies? I am truly at a loss. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
