A 20 year old female student came with complaints of allergic rhinitis since 2 years and urticaria since 9 months.
Attacks were very frequent, started with sneezing, coryza, burning sensation in the eyes, lachrymation and severe itching in the eyes. Occasionally it was associated with fever.
Burning and rawness of the nostrils was present. All complaints were worse by smell of any perfume, dust, smoke & smell of flowers. Anti-allergic medicine only gave her temporary relief.

Her sleep used to be disturbed in anticipation if she had to wake up early the next morning. She dreamt of her dead cousin very often and also about people close to her dying which made her feel very uneasy.
