Dry mouth and lips is a common side effect of taking histamine blockers and decongestants. It does take some time after you discontinue taking these medicines depending upon your dose and duration for which you took the medicine.
You can try Homoeopathic medicines to get cure for dry lips as well as your allergic condition to get cured permanently without any side effects.
avoid / limit your medicines and decongestants intake, covers your nose and mouth before entering or leaving cold rooms or when exposed to dust or pollens, donot pick your lips or nose, drink plenty of water throughout the day, avoid caffeine, tobacco or alcohol as it will further aggravate your condition.
Yes dryness of mouth is a common side effect of hosts tablet. Yes it should go away when u stop ur medicine intake. For nasal allergy do this
1. Do saline gargles daily.
2. Whenever possible do steam inhalation also.
3. Cover your nose and mouth with hanky for at least 30 sec when you go in dusty areas also when you go in and out of AC. As our nose is the most sensitive part of our body, When there is temperature difference between two rooms or inside n outside, then if we not protect our nose, it gets affected.
4. Drink Hot Liquids --Hot liquids relieve nasal congestion, prevent dehydration, and soothe the uncomfortably inflamed membranes that line your nose and throat.
5. Sleep With an Extra Pillow Under Your Head-- Elevating your head will help relieve congested nasal passages. If the angle is too awkward, try placing the pillows between the mattress and the box springs to create a more gradual slope.
6. Treat That Stuffy Nose With Warm Salt Water-- Salt-water rinsing helps break nasal congestion, while also removing virus particles and bacteria from your nose.
7. Blow Your Nose Often (and the Right Way)-- It's important to blow your nose regularly when you have a cold rather than sniffling mucus back into your head. But when you blow hard, pressure can carry germ-carrying phlegm back into your ear passages, causing earache. The best way to blow your nose: Press a finger over one nostril while you blow gently to clear the other.
