Hay fever

Who else is locked in a titanic struggle with Mother Nature? Current sporting blood shot eyes and a red snotty nose like Iv got a cocaine habit Tony Montana on zero sleep would be proud of.

Keep taking all sorts of anti histamines but they do nothing but make me drowsy even the supposed non drowsy ones.

    I get the occasional itchy eyes, but it never lasts long these days touch wood.
     
    Apparently, strawberries contain a natural anti histamine, so I've been eating plenty of these.  Also, local honey (needs to be harvested locally, so I've heard...).
     
    I do sympathise though, it's incredibly disruptive to everything you do...

    Same here mate. My eyes feel like they have sand in them, my nose is blocked one min and running the next and my throat is sore.
     
    I buy Loratadine, it's what some of the big brands are without the brand name (Google it) 69p per 30 tablets online rather than 4.50 for 8 tablets in the supermarkets. Non drowsy too.

    Took me ages to eventually find the anti-h med that seemed to make a difference. Doesn't rid me of the symptoms completely but other than the occasional irresistible urge to scratch my eyeballs out after cycling home late at night by and large I don't struggle too badly at all. I used to be in bits for 2-3 months
     
    For me the Fluctinase Prop nose spray has been the biggest difference maker, to the point where I now don't even buy the eye drops at all. I keep some Chloraphenamine Maleate tabs to hand, you can use 4+ a day of those so just drop one as and when I feel things getting bad if I need it.
     
    Using other sprays and tabs I was still struggling and getting thru bottles of eye drops too. You just need to work your way thru and find the one your system responds too, what works for one may not work for another even if the causes are identical.

    It’s the worst. They say one a day on the tablets I’m using and I’m taking them twice every four hours and still look like I’m suffering an allergic reaction to shellfish.

    Change tablets/med.... if they're going to work will know fairly quickly. If they aren't working, more won't make any difference

    I get it pretty bad. Take the anti-h before bed. Also as dv suggests go all out and use them with a nasal spray and eye solution. Ive also tried chamomile, peppermint and nettle teas with some success. Failing that put some vaseline on your nostrils as a barrier, bit messy but works too. I fckin hate hayfever!

    Seems to be a really bad year, eyes been streaming! Try some different types/brands of hystenine - some seem to do nothing for me, whereas others work well.

    The ones from Aldi I find particularly good. Eye drops and nasal sprats if the tabs aren't cutting it!

    Same here. This is the worst year for Hayfever in a long time. I thought I had grown out of it after the last few years but that is definitely not the case!

    You want the anti histamines they don't want to sell you. The non drowsy ones do **** all, the best one I've found OTC is piriton.

    Fluticasone nasal spray will sort you except on the worst days, then chuck in a loratadine tab.
    I'm on half a loratadine a day ATM, avoiding the fluticasone if I can do without it, as it seems to give me a tad of 'roid rage these days. When I say rage, I mean short, but intense attacks of depression. Fluticasone is a 'roid, and quite a strong one. It won't give you gainz tho.

    Hi mate,
    Do yourself a favour and ditch the pills and find yourself a LOCAL honey source. Start taking a spoonful a day. This will take a few weeks to work but it will work.

    You slowly introduce the pollen into your body building up a tolerance to it😉

    This is apparently the highest pollen count we have had for years. I have even been on my inhaler as I have hayfever induced asthma which I only get when things are bad. I have been a sufferer all my 47 years and the only thing that works for me is the 3 a day benadryl. I used the 3 a day as on the 1 a day if I take one and them im bad later I can't have one.  The other things you can do, which might seem daft, are do not hang your bedding on the line as this then comes in the house full of pollen. if you cut the grass put cotton wool up your nose.
