      My allergies have been bothering me as well!  I picked up some Clariton at CVS today and it has helped with the runny nose and sneezing.  The sooner spring ends the better.

      YES YES YES

      Started late this year... end of February.  Thankfully.  People think I am nuts when I know trees are already frolicking at that time of year.

      I recommend a shower and nasal wash before bed.  Neti pots are wonderful!

      I have a Sinus problem, so at the onset of spring I lock myself at home.

      Although pollen causes me problems, my Sinusitis mainly gets triggered by pollution.

      Before I go out I use a spray (Sinox Nasal Spray) that has prophylactic properties similar to Airborne Health Formula. This helps reduce the likelihood of falling sick.

      As Lwelsh mentioned, the Neti-pot also works.

    Yes, every spring is allergy season for me! It’s a nuisance, and really interferes with my daily activities unless I find an antihistamine that works, but spring is still my favorite season. I love seeing the growth of new plants and the appearance of animals that I haven’t seen since the last year.

    Spring is the time of year that we normally think of when it comes to seasonal allergies. As the trees start to bloom and the pollen gets airborne, allergy sufferers begin their annual ritual of sniffling and sneezing. Each year, 35 million Americans fall prey to seasonal allergic rhinitis, more commonly known as hay fever.

    Although there is no magical cure for spring allergies, there are a number of ways to combat them, from medication to household habits.

    Here are some of the biggest spring allergy offenders:

    Trees

    Alder
    Ash
    Aspen
    Beech
    Box elder
    Cedar
    Cottonwood
    Cypress
    Elm
    Hickory
    Juniper
    Maple
    Mulberry
    Oak
    Olive
    Palm
    Pine
    Poplar
    Sycamore
    Willow

    Grasses and weeds

    Bermuda
    Fescue
    Johnson
    June
    Orchard
    Perennial rye
    Redtop
    Saltgrass
    Sweet vernal
    Timothy

    Allergy symptoms tend to be particularly high on breezy days when the wind picks up pollen and carries it through the air. Rainy days, on the other hand, cause a drop in the pollen counts because the rain washes away the allergens.
