Allergies

My allergies are going nuts this year. I sneeze like crazy. And not just little cute aaachoo's like I normally do. These are rapid fire, you better cross your legs, from the gut sneezes. The back of my throat feels like a gob of goo is stuck in it and it itches like crazy. I have to do the back of the throat squeak honk scratch that only talented people can do. And my lips and eyes...I want to scratch them off my head. It's that annoying under the skin itch that you just can't quite satisfy. I hope it ends soon. Is anyone else suffering this year?

YES!!! Both of us are, Mark and I. Every time he comes home from work (it's a little habit) pulls out his eye drops and uses it. He keeps it in his pocket. Our house is surrounded by kleenex boxes. Every room, every window sill, every section has some sort of nose wiping devise. I swear (not really, but) that either I'm getting not so good at battling the dang season due to age, or the pollen and allergy creating substances are just getting worse. I think it's the latter, I'm not getting old....hmmmmmm.

Heard a great reliever. Go to your local MD or clinic and get an allergy shot. I do not suffer but my good friend does and she got one and she is doing great, none of the sneezing fits, watery eyes, feeling that you are suffering 24/7. Good luck!

You described it just right! I always suffered with hayfever when I was a kid, but haven't had troubles for quite a few years. I took the herb, "ALJ" faithfully as a kid (okay, so maybe I fought it a lot, but I took it quite often) and I think that really helped me. You should try it.

Isn't it crazy how some years it hits and othe years it doesn't? Unfortunately mine is bad when I'm pregnantand my doctor wouldn't let me take what normally helps for me ... HAS (hayfever, allery, sinus) I think it's "Nature's Way" and you can get it at GNC. Good luck - allergies are miserable!!

Russ has been going nuts for a couple of weeks now. I haven't been to bad because it hasn't been windy. I just get going when the dust kicks up from the wind. I think it has been a bad season for allergies this year. Sorry to hear you are suffering so bad!

This has been the WORST year for my husband who seems to be allergic to every tree or grass that's out there. He definitely only started it up as an adult. But this year has been pretty bad for him. Try claritin or zyrtec. They seem to help and you can get them over the counter now. I hope you feel better...it just stinks, doesn't it!

Liam and James! We're currently paying for the Kleenex guys yacht I think.

I get dry throat, but it's easily managed with a strict ice cream regiment :)!
