    I think Zyrtec is great. It really helps.

    It is also possible to change your diet. My friend did it. He began to eat more fruits and vegetables, less fast-food and sweets. He also doesn’t drink any sodas, instead he drinks ice-teas or hot teas during a day. In the morning he loves to have his coffee. It looks like a Spartan life, but it mustn't be at all.

    You have to take complete rest. Put a wet cloth in your forehead and wet it whenever  it get dry. Use only liquid food and  drink lot of water. Fever will come down within few hours.
    If  hay fever  continuing  or complicated better to  consult with physician.

    Hayfever usually acts up in late summer, and early fall. The known culprits are ragweed pollen, and mold. If your allergies act up in the spring , and you feel better after it rains, (rain washes pollen out of the air)than more than likely its pollen allergies. If your allergies act up on wet days, in moldy places, around wet leaves, are year round, and worse in the fall, then its mold. QBC, is the best natural antihistamine. Benedryl is still the strongest, but causes drowsiness. Allegra just came out over the counter. They also offer a generic form. Zyrtec, which is hydroxizine, and can cause drowsiness. The best way is to treat the cause.
    For true hayfever, bio allers makes a new product, sublingual, to treat the actual cause. You may use at the same time as a natural anti histamine, or an over the counter one.
    As well as for mold. http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/Is-it … or-allergy
    Other recommendations include the following:
    Keep windows shut, if its pollen. At your house, and in the car. Pollen is carried thru the air, and can settle everywhere. Ever have your shoes turn yellow, when you walk through the grass? pollen.
    After being out doors, take a shower, change clothes, it also settles in the hair, and on clothes. You don't want to take that to bed with you.
    A furnace filter specifically for pollen, should say on the package, will help to remove pollen, or mold from the house.
    Your immune system is reacting to a protein in ragweed. The same protein is in cantalope, melons, and chamomile, best to avoid those foods, and herbs.
    If your reactions are severe an immunoligist should be consulted.
    I hear this year is suppose be pretty bad. As we really haven't had a good cold freeze. Global warming. Hope this helps.
