Has anyone had any positive & successful experiences with any allergist on the North Coast of the DR or in Santiago?
* I'd appreciate a brief explanation of your experiences, when they occured, & the name, address, etc. of the specific allergist. Suggestions? Reccomendations? All welcomed. Thank you.

May I ask, what allergic symptoms are you suffering from?

Response to Q byMirador re: my symptoms

Some AMs, perhaps most, after I get up & @ 6:30 - 7:00 AM on, my eyes water almost uncontrolably, my nose gets congested, I sneeze - nearly violently, & I feel weak. This varies during the day; not all day nor every day, but frequently. It's worst in the AM. I live in the Cofresi area of POP; not much dust @ here, esp. compared to the main roads in la Ciudad de POP. Pollen, etc.? I don't know. I have no A/C in my house; when I use the SUV w A/C, the symptoms go away.
* I checked with my American [Mass.] MD; he told me that allergies are extremely local; to deal with my allergies effectively, assuming that I have allergies, I had to go to a DR MD.
* Medications: I'm trying Claritan; it seems to work OK; except that at times, I get sleepy.
* My situation isn't serious; more persistently annoying than life threatening. But, . . . . . it seems to be getting worse.
Thank you for asking. Reccomendation? Suggestions?

I also am allergic to mold. Usually get an attack after a period of a few days of rain. The best medication for me is Flonase. Causes me no drowsieness or side-effects.

Many people who stop the intake of dairy see a relief in allergies. Building up your inmune system helps a lot. Lots of Vitamin C(Ascorbic Acid) is very important supplements. Nasal irrigating works well also. You wash out your nasal passages with a saline solution. and doing a total detox and following a healthy diet after that is also very helpful.good luck.
