I hate them! I don't know about everywhere else, but the local news here was saying that this year is the worst in 50 years for allergies. I believe it. I've been having difficulty breathing, almost asthmatic, and I'm seriously considering gouging out my eyes if they continue to itch like this. I just took an OTC Claritin, hopefully that'll kick in soon.

Anyone else going crazy?

My allergies are actually not too bad so far this year. Luckily I never encounter anything as bad as you do. Hope you feel better soon

Yeah, he lives with my parents and their 75 ft. pine tree is baaaad. I was there on Saturday and I'm STILL feeling nasty. Animals and normal stuff doesn't bother me, but that pine tree snows yellow pollen for weeks.

I'm such a , i'm allergic to:

dust: because I have Rhinitis (don't know how to spell it in english). In the worst cases I can't breath and I feel sufocated.

cold: I'm propense to respiratory infections and the actual winter (yes, bogot√° is a cold city ) isn't helping me at all.

while I was in college I found that i'm allergic to the photographic chemicals :S

Mine have passed, thank God.

I get a terribly runny nose, but I can put up with that so long as my sinuses aren't throbbing. That's the worst by far.

my allergies have been really bad so far this summer but they seem to get worse every year. The Claritin isn't cutting it. I'm wondering about Claritin D

I'm supposed to be taking advair and nasonex but haven't been. It just seems like too much medicine

Mine are at their worse in the morning. The nurse at the doctor's office where I get my shots told me to take my Allegra before I go to bed. I have and it's been really helping me.

Suprisingly, I haven't been too bad this. I think all they rain we've gotten in the northeast has helped me out quite a bit. I'm taking Alavert and it does seem to be working too. In the past I've taken Flonase, Claratin, Allegra, and a few other things as well.

My allergies suck----but they're much better now that we've moved out of the moldy basement that we used to live in!!

u2democrat, you're in VA, right? i'm in's always so terrible around us! i think a month ago they said the pollen count was like 3000 (when the hundreds are bad enough!). oy! i have a bunch of friends from college & med school who'd never had allergies until they'd moved here.

We live just south of Frederick, MD and I've been hearing too how horrible the pollen count is here around D.C.
My son has been on Claritin for the past couple of months. He is having a hard time with his allergies this year. Always a runny nose, itchy watery eyes, etc... A non-stop cold for him.
I feel so sorry for my little man

For thos of you who get seasonal allergies, I recommend lemon and ginger tea. I get extremely bad hayfever, and was recommended it by a friend - I have a cup first thing in the morning, and it works like a miracle cure.
The tea doesn't taste so good, but it works just as well as things like beconase and claritin.
