Effect of coffee on allergy
Dr. James Wedner
James Wedner, M.D., is the director of the Allergy and Asthma Center at Washington University in St. Louis and has been in the field for 40 years.
He doesn't have allergies, but he still won't prescribe anything for his patients that he wouldn't use himself. "I have tasted every medicine that I've given to my patients," he says. He says he rarely gets sick (thanks to a daily vitamin C tablet), but when he does get congested he'll use a baby's bulb syringe and saltwater solution to clear his pipes.
Another tip from Dr. Wedner: Coffee is a decongestant. If you drink a lot of coffee while taking oral decongestants, it may make the pills more effective.
If you have testimony to coffee as a combat for allergy, please send your comment to us or email firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to know if it makes a different regarding to what type of coffee you drink. caffeinated or decafe
