Hayfever Sucks

Suffering

I suffer with the allergy hay fever which unfortunately means that during the summer months family and friends suffer as well,they suffer me moaning and groaning about how rotten i feel.Now my hay fever isn't as bad as some peoples,i generally around the end of may beginning of June get cold like symptoms which are usually runny nose which i have to keep blowing or itching eyes or on some days i am blessed with both.

I have friends who also have it,one friend has serious eye issues and sometimes is so bad cant see properly, and another friend gets all the symptoms a lot worse than i do so i cant complain too much.

Prevention

Again just like the symptoms of hay fever the preventions can differ depending on the person,it is really a case of trial and error,For me personally i find actifed cold and flu tablets dry up my runny nose and generally make me feel a lot more human again and enable me to go about my day to day business,however they can make me drowsy which is a bit of a pain.Other people prefer hay fever cures such as Zyrtec or piriton but in my experience they just don't dry my nose up enough.I have recently discovered that if you purchase honey that has been made in your local area and then take a spoonful a night every night for up to 5 months before your hay fever period starts then by the time it does your body is almost used to the pollen form the honey and it dramatically reduces the symptoms.

Ideas

Apologies for this rather short hub but i could go on and bitch about how rough i feel during the summer months so i shall stop here,but i am keen for people to leave comments regarding their own cures and reliefs.thanks guys.

Im 16, and have had HayFever since last summer. I hate it more than spiders. And that's a lot. My eyes and nose are effected equally during June, July and August. I take tablets which are temporarily effective but my question is, are there any Home rem-ides as they seem to do the Job on me :) Thanks

@ciaran i recently brought a bit of home kit from boots,it is a device wherby u put two probes up your nose and turn on this machine which fires infrared light up your nostrils helping to stimulate them to trap pollen,it cost about £15 and seems to work quite well

Great hub. I know exactly how you feel! I'm sitting here wondering if I should go back to bed AGAIN, or find some way to just get through it. Allergies are no fun and often those around us don't understand how awful we feel. Hope you're handling it well warchild75. I've heard of the honey tip before but haven't tried it, maybe it's time!
