No. If you go from cold to warm then there will be no effect but when you go to cold environment again, and if you do continue the cycle you will surely get symptoms like headach and dizziness with discharge from nose and watering eyes.

If symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ent problem like dns polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management.

Hi, I am 34 years old and I am suffering from sneezing and nasal discharge for many years. Last year I got septoplasty done on the recommendation of an ent doctor. For around 9 months after that, I was better. But since last 1-2 months, the problems have surfaced again with almost same intensity. I feel heavy itching nostrils, sneezing and nasal discharge almost everyday. Sometimes the situation persist for whole day. I consulted one ent specialist around 2 months ago who suggested me to get a" serum ige level" test done. He told me that based on that test, allergy shots would be given. Then I got the idea that may be I need to go to an allergy specialist for cure to my problem. But before that I have some questions, 1. Are there allergy shots which can give relief for sometime. 2. What is the most relevant speciality of doctor in my case. 3. Is there a complete or permanent cure for this problem. 4. How long would be the treatment. 5. Are there any side effects.
