Remind me to sneeze on you next time.

Where: HealthPartners Como clinic
City: St. Paul
State: MN
Original Complaint: Ran out of allergy pills, was congested. Allegra D is not available OTC here.

There is no such thing as a dust or dustmite allergy.
Dust irritates everyone's nose, resulting in more mucus.
The congestion was probably a cold virus.
Antibiotics will help a virus.

This resulted in me giving him an amused look and asking if he was an intern. Surprise! He was! I wryly asked that if there's no such thing as a dust/mite allergy, what my 32mm hive from the scratch test could have been caused by.

He then went and got the resident.

Who immediately gave me my scrip.
