Got it? I do. And I am suffering big time right now. Maybe another beer will help?

Sadly beer doesn't help me. Coffee sometimes does, though.

Yep, I suffer badly. Nothing has helped, sprays, pills, shots, just gotta go through it..

Beers dramatically worsen allergies for me. Go out, get out, exercise in that pollen ridden environment. THAT has clinically provided relief to me.

There is a great tablet called 'Telfast' in Europe.Maybe it is under a different
name in the states but it is worth trying. It is only available from a doctor over
here.

I have hayfever as well... sneezed nine times in a row in a class this week and it all happens constantly. I use a nasal spray.

I have it as well. It's not too bad, but still unpleasant.

I suggest taking alfalfa tablets (found in health stores) and eating honey.

Interesting coincidence. My best friend suffered from alergies his whole life and they suddenly just stopped. A couple weeks later he found out he had cancer and passed away a few months later, he was always wondering if the cancer shut down the alergy.

This year I can't hide in my room suffering, because I have a new dog who needs his walks. I usually take him on 2 2-3 mile walks per day.

Since the blooming started, it has been hell. I had a major attack in the dog park today. I had to basically drag the dog away from the friends he was playing with to come hide in my room, where I feel much better.

So much for going out and exercising.

The best approach to "hayfever" is the most natural one and that is to flush out of your nose (there is a "filter" in there) all the allergens in the environment that is driving your allergy symptoms. There is a cheap product called SINUS RINSE (by NeilMed) that will do that for you. Just fill it with warm tap water, add 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt, and clean out that nose filter.

That sounds like a good idea, but for the last three years what's really killing me is my eyes. I look like a demon, and my eyes feel like they have salt in them.

Oh well. The crosses I bear. :sigh:

There is an over the counter eyedrop called Zaditor (ketotifen) that may help the eyes. Before anyone ask how I know all this, the answer is that I am a Board Certified allergist, practicing for over 20 years now.

I noticed my hay fever was significantly reduced when I started taking fish oil suppliments. I wasn't sure if it was just a coincidence until about a month ago, when my wife noted she had seen a medical report that fish oil did, in fact, help reduce hay fever symptoms.

And yes, the NEIL-MED sinus rinse really helps for both stuffed up nose and sneezing, and sore throat from post-nasal drip.

This year's been especially bad, though, with the weather alternating cool and rainy and hot and windy, which sends tree pollen levels soaring. I discovered my N95 filter mask that I wear when woodworking actually helps with the pollen, as well. I won't do yardwork anymore unless I wear it.

Thanks for bringing up NeilMed, George. I use their Neti Pot (basically the cheaper, old-school, gravity-feed version of the squeeze bottle for those unfamiliar). The kit comes with saline packets. I saw Neti pots on some medical show, and figured it was a better solution to drugs, although on really bad days, I will take a 24 hour Clariton (generic).

The Neti pot is also a godsend when I've spent a long day in the woodshop.

I have central air, I take alergy pills, I still have a sneezing fit every morning, and it will go away in October.

I haven't heard anyone use the word "hayfever" in about 40 years, I feel like I'm in a time warp. Generally people these days use the word "allergies" when they are talking about seasonal sinus irritations.

You live in the high desert of north western Nevada, and you ain't got no pollen up there. I live in the hot/humid north east, where we got stuff growing from the cracks in the sidewalk.

No pollen? Are you kidding? We have brush and grasses all over the place, my property is full of them, and there is an alfalfa field at the end of my street that they just did their first cut last week. The desert is covered with brush.
