I love this time of year;everything is blooming, birds are chirping and my nose hasn't stopped running for weeks!
anyone else having major allergy symptoms now?
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.
i have year around allergies but this time of the year does suck for allergies. i live where i can enjoy four beautiful seasons but i suffer through all of them except for winter.
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.
with record-breaking temperatures for April and rainfall,the allergy season is horrible this 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:
Grasses and weeds
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.

I know of someone who has peanut, tree nut, soy and shellfish allergies. Are these proteins airborne? In other words, is it okay to cook items free of allergens in the same oven as items containing the above...

It's 80 degrees in South Kentucky ,and every tree and some flowers are in full bloom. I cut the grass the other day and now my allergies are also in full bloom. If its 80 now what will July be like?
