I may be in the wrong system , but I want to know if adults can get an allergy as I have running nose and watery eyes for almost 11/2 years now. I am 73 yrs old and at my witts end . I believe it is a medication, but my doctors here do not take it serious

Not sure on that, but if it were me, I would be looking for a new doctor! My doctor is very thorough to address my questions and concerns. I would try to ask them again and communicate that you want an answer and if they can’t follow up with you that you will be looking for another provider that is a better fit for you. You’re not trying to be ornery with them, but if you politely say it like that they may reconsider and take it more seriously. And if they don’t then you truly do need a new provider. That’s just my opinion! Good luck and keep us posted on how it turns out!

Hi, @mrlee43.
It sounds like these symptoms are really bothersome, and I’m sorry it’s been challenging to get the help you need. Since you asked about the possibility of allergies, I’d like to suggest some material on them here: http://mayocl.in/2hlsYuC

Conversations about adult allergies are found in various places on Connect. I’d like to direct you to this discussion in particular:

In this discussion, @ladycat writes “I have worked as a Pharmacy Tech for 7 yrs. I can tell you quite honestly that anyone at anytime can become allergic or sensitive to a drug or drugs.”

I encourage you to reply to LadyCat here: http://mayocl.in/2rK6F45 and ask about your allergies.
