Always have cough, cold

My sister have cough,cold,sneezing problem throughout the year.We stay in Bangalore and she always have some kind of allergy and intermittent fever wiyh cold. It becomes necessary to take cetrizine and Viscodyne throughout the year. Eithput Viscodyne (taking other cough medivines) does not even subsides her cough. I am not sure if she has dust allergy but even if she goes out covering her nose and mouth, still she has cold and keepd on sneezing or coughing throughout the year. What might be the problem as I am really worried about her?

Dear friend, your sister having cold and cough throughout the year even after covering her nose suggests it's less likely to be allergic. It might be due to some polyp or chronic sinusitis( if associated with headache). Kindly check with an ENT surgeon in person. hope this helps. regards.

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
She could definitely be having some allergy but what allergy? It needs to be found out. She could go for a allergy profile test after consulting a ENT specialist or a pulmonologist in person for further evaluation and management. 
Best regards.
