I am really suffering from cold, with a running nose, sneezing, as well as headache. I have been taking so many different drugs but still the situation remains the same.

For weeks now my area of the country has been plagued with excessive juniper pollen production owing to the large numbers of junipers in the area and anomalous warm winter conditions that have triggered extra flowering. Headache, sinus pressure, chest congestion, and above all excessive and continuous mucus production are my allergy symptoms, and despite use of loratadine and prescribed fluticasone propionate nasal spray, the symptoms are getting worse. They are much worse at night; that's when junipers bloom and I am feeling increasingly exhausted.

I have a really raw throat in the back, more at the top of my throat. It is red tiny streaks and raw to swallow. I have been gargling. I believe it will turn into a head cold but would like to prevent that. I have been around a lot of people in the last few days. Don’t smoke. Last time I had anything like this was in July and I had laryngitis and a lot of coughing.

I have been coughing for the last 10 days. Seen two doctors. But the cough still persist. My throat is like having worm tickling. The worst is when I cough, my urine also leaked. I have to sit in the toilet once my throat starts to itch and cough. The cough lasted for at least 3-5 minutes.
