Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


Recently, I've noticed a concerning pattern in my health. Whenever I'm exposed to even a few drops of rain, I seem to develop flu-like symptoms and experience issues with my tonsils. Could you kindly provide insight into what might be causing this recurring problem?



Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


It seems that your symptoms, triggered by rain exposure, likely indicate an allergic reaction. While rainwater itself is not typically allergenic, it can carry other substances like pollen or pollutants that may be causing your symptoms. Taking antihistamines can help alleviate your discomfort temporarily, but for long-term relief, I recommend consulting with a medical professional for a comprehensive evaluation and personalized treatment plan. Allergy testing can identify specific triggers, allowing for targeted interventions to manage your symptoms effectively. By seeking medical guidance, you can take proactive steps towards improving your overall quality of life.
