It started for me today. Anyone else?
My favorite remedies are sleeping 12 hours a day and eating every second that I’m awake. Snorting cromolyn sodium also helps.
I felt a tickle today too. I'm a Benadryl person, and took some accordingly.
One of my 3 year old daughters woke up sneezing no less than 17 times in a row...that's like running a half marathon for a wee one. Must be something floating in the fog today.
a combination of zyrtec-D and a netipot. works great for me.
Triaminic or Claritin doesn't work for me. Benadryl works in heavy doses, but unless I'm exercising, I pass out within the hour.
There was one year that my eyes itched so bad that I had to frequently apply icecubes to my eyelids. That same year, I could break out in hives within 2 minutes just by sitting in mown grass.
The allergic reactions come and go about every 3-4 years and vary in intensity; which, interestingly enough, does not vary with the amount of mold/fungus/pollen in the air, or my location.
I started sneezing today too..and that 12 hours of sleep begins now.
I am happy to blame the sneezing on something other than the new cat.
Last week & today, the sneezing & watery eyes started - Benadryl works for me too
Ah, so I guess I'm not just coming down with the World's Worst Cold. In the past I've only gotten mildy sniffly during ragweed season, so I wasn't sure if the gallons of snot I've been producing lately were viral or pollen related.
I can't get my neti pot to work. Either I am so congested that the water can't flow through my sinuses, or I'm doing it wrong. It trickles back into my throat and I feel like I'm drowning in a swimming pool.
Here in Germany, one of the approaches to relief of spring allergies is a daily spoon of honey produced by local bees. I guess the idea is sort of like a vaccine in that it fortifies your immune system with small amounts of the thing you're allergic to.
Is this season exceptionally bad in Chicago? I never knew I had allergies, thought it was a constant cold. This is different, I went for a bike ride & could barely breathe - coughing & wheezy. Tried Claritin Reditabs which helped a lot. Think it gave me a headache tho....
