AL­LERGY WISE

Health & Nutrition - - HEALTHY MIND - Dr Chris de Souza, ENT Sur­geon

I’m start­ing to think I have al­ler­gies, even though I never had al­ler­gies as a child. I get a stuffy nose and scratchy throat at var­i­ous times through­out the year, with no other cold symp­toms. Can you de­velop al­ler­gies as you age? Nisha Menon, In­dore

You can de­velop al­ler­gies at any age. How­ever, in view of your com­plaints, I would like to treat you with a pro­ton pump in­hibitor twice a day for some time and see if your com­plaints lessen with that.
