From Hay Fever

Terribly itchy eyes, unlimited sneezing, can you suggest?

I was wondering its allergy due to pollens in this season, but I am home most of the times and even the doors and windows have a net lining, limiting even dust from coming in. Yes, I do have a peace lily plant at home, could this be the cause of my allergy? I have been taking Allegra D daily, since it didnt help, I was prescribed Aerius for allergy, but neither helps….please suggest cause and remedy. Thanks

Answer:

Certainly sounds like hay fever. Eat local honey all year round to let your body build a tolerance for the local flora. It will reduce the fever in Summer. Also try mixing a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinager with it, and use lots of the vinager in Summer. It works for everything. You may be allergic to something else either, still try Apple cider vinager.

Need a Miracle Allergy Medication?

Anyone know of effective proven medications for allergies? I have hay fever and allergic conjunctivitis (eyes are irritated all the time), but now there is volcanic residue (vog) in the air and it’s much worse than pollen and dust combined. I tried claritin, zyrtec, and allegra, where allegra was the more effective medicine. I also use neilmed nasal rinse, alaway eyedrops, systane tear drops, and gonna start using nasalcrom. Any breakthroughs with allergy medicines or proven natural remedies?

Answer:

I used to use Nasonex with Claritin every morning and that worked well with me. Over time, though, the medicine didn’t work, so use it only during allergy season

Allergies/hay fever if no red, watery itchy eyes?

My sinuses get really congested a few times a year (maybe sinus infection, which I know can be triggered by an allergic reaction). I’m wondering if I have hay fever. I stay indoors most of the time. Although I sneeze occassionally and get really congested with sinus headaches, I don’t ever have red, watery or itchy eyes. What is this??? I also experience a lot of postnasal drip and sometimes a sore throat because of it – but usually not an itchy throat.

This question was not answered by a nutritionist, however another user commented.

Answer:

Common allergens that occur indoors are dust, dust mites, mold and cockroaches. You can have allergies without having red, watery or itchy eyes. Hay fever generally is seasonal and occurs when there is an increase of pollens in the air through Spring and Summer. If it is not during these times then it is most likely an indoor allergen that is creating the problem. Food allergens may also trigger post nasal drip and sinus infections such as cow’s milk allergy.

What are some natural remedies for hay fever?

I’m tired of taking prescription drugs as i’ve reacted badly to some and don’t always trust the long worded methodyloctix goodness knows what stuff they put in it lol. So am trying to seek out natural ingredients like increased vitamin C from fruit or stuff. So was hoping if anyone has natural things that work for them to combat the typical symptoms of hay fever? (runny nose, itchy eyes, throat etc). Much appreciated. P.s. I’ve tried to eliminate certain foods from my diet which im slightly sensitive to. Any help wil be greatly appreciated! 🙂 Thx for the tips so far. Have read both the links “mumknows..” and still may consider it, although i live in a major city, i’m not sure i can find nearby honey makers. But i’ll still look out for it. Thx

Answer:

I’ve heard stinging nettle or bayberry helps hay fever. Allergy desensitization shots are natural. They are a tiny extract of the pollen to which you are allergic. Over several years they slowly build up the dosage until it is as strong as what you naturally encounter.

Answer:

I used to get bloody noses for no reason when I was younger. At one point the doctor did what was called cauterizing. It didn’t really seem to help because I continued to get them into my 20s. I also had hay fever a lot as a kid and this doctor gave me a prescription for hay fever medicine. Finally I figured out that the hay fever medicine or any anti-histamine medicine that dries out the inner nose membranes will cause me to have a bloody nose. I finally stopped taking any type of cold or hay fever medicine that dries the nose and that really helped. But sometimes the hay fever causes a stuffy nose and that can lead to a bloody nose. I found a product that works great at keeping the nose moist and not drying out through colds and hay fever. It is called Ayr (pronounced Air). I used the saline nasal gel and it works great. The articles below should also help.

What type of pollen am I allergic to?

Every year I seem to get hay fever just when everyone else is getting over it. I’ve been fine all through the spring but this week it’s all come out in full force. I’m just wondering what type of pollen it is I’m actually allergic to? I live in Herts, UK and it’s only really become bad this week (Mid-June).

Hay fever or just a cold?

For the last couple of days I’ve woken up with a stuffy nose with then, throughout the day turns into a runny nose. My eyes start watering when I’m outside. I’ve also been sneezing loads not just in one place. I’ve been sneezing at home, outdoors and at school! Is it just a cold or is it hay fever?? Can you even get hay fever this time of year??

This question was not answered by a nutritionist, however another user commented.

Answer:

Hay fever is a respiratory response to an allergen. Colds are an upper respiratory infection caused by a virus. For both, the immune system releases inflammatory chemicals that cause nasal congestion. Although both produce a runny nose, mucus caused by colds will have color to it. Mucus caused by allergies will be clear or transparent. Both conditions will cause sneezing. However, hay fever can produce prolong and repeated spells of sneezing that colds do not. Hay fever tends to produce a scratchy throat while colds produce more of a red and sore throat.
