If you have been drinking chamomile tea, STOP immediately. Use over time can lead to weed pollen allergy. The same with prolonged use of echinacea. (quote from link below...Echinacea- "may overstimulate immune system and lead to immune suppression" "Increases tumor necrosis factor" "Don't use in HIV" Don't use for more than 2 weeks in a row.)

See an allergist. I had gotten to the point in my late 40's where I could not breathe except through my mouth. A skin patch test on my back revealed that I am very allergic to feathers. I threw out all my feather pillows. Nasonex helped me recover.
