    Can Allergy start after 25 years of your life!
    An_247823 posted:
    I am 25 years old, from India. About 3 years ago, I came to the USA to do my Masters and studied at universities at Ohio and Upstate New York. I had not experienced any type of allergy till about 9 months ago when I moved to Florida. I am having typical allergy symtoms like Stuffy nose, running nose, sneezing, constant irritation of the nose. It is killing me everyday and I take Zyrtec giving a gap of 24 hours. I do not know what to do! Please share your thoughts.

    Thank you!
