Not worked it out yet ... marginally better gluten-free, have been dairy free a month and that has not made a difference. I guss at least I may get dairy back :)

Yes I do have environmental allergies..actually just found out. The allergist said that food allergies don't cause post nasal drip or the redness that is on the skin under my eyes.

food allergies (IgE mediated) as well as food sensitivies (IgG mediated) can cause postnasal drip. dairy is very inflammatory, regardless if people have senstivies to it or not. my daughter got postnasal drip and then asthma from dairy. after i pulled it out of her diet for 1 yr, she can now eat it, in limited quantities.

I'm another one who has chronic post nasal drip. It's so bad at time that it's made me vomit. I asked my doctor about this a few years ago and she couldn't really give me any info, but I did have blood tests done for a slew of common allergens (respiratory) and was negative for all of them (and I also have no other common allergy symptoms whatsoever, like sneezing, itchy eyes, etc).

Don't know what it could be except that it gets much worse after I've eaten... it's really aggravating. I still haven't gone dairy-free, though it's on the agenda. If you find out anything please post.

I had chronic postnasal drip for years, despite everything I did to avoid environmental allergens. However, after I abtained from dairy, my postnasal drip and chronic congestioin magically disappeared. Even when I get respiratory infections, I no longer have congestion or pnd.

Excellent. So in this short thread already 2 people have resolved the post nasal drip by removing dairy. This is great info. Last night after dinner (which involved a salad with feta cheese) I had a coughing fit with post-nasal drip so bad that I was gagging. Yuck. Might need to move that dairy-free trial up on the schedule...
