I am in my own personal hell for the past few days- My eyes are swollen and red, my ears are clogged and I feel like my head is going to This completely sucks!! I was sick before the NJ show Tuesday now this before tomorrow at MSG! I have to be better for tomorrow



Any suggestions with keeping in mind I have horrible side effects to medications?

Allergies suck ass! I'm so sorry you're not feeling 100% before the concert.

Have you tried Allegra and those allergy medications? They tend to relieve some of the symptoms for me anyway, but you said you have bad reactions to medications so I'm not sure.

Advil Cold and Sinus, although not specific to allergies, still works wonders for anything in the head region in my opinion!

Get a good sleep and bring kleenex and the like. Feel better for tomorrow!

Get some Allergy Visine.

I didn't get allergies until last year....I woke up one morning and couldn't even open my eyes they were that bad. I thought I had pink eye or something and freaked. I needed to get special eye drops AND take medicine ontop of that. Holy hell allergies suck.

I took clarinex today, didn't help much and made me tired. I can't get a drs appointment until Monday so I asked the pharmacist what to do and she recomended claritin D non drowsy, but I'm too afraid to take it tomorrow

Hmm you should be ok with the non-drowsy but I can understand your anxiety! Maybe try it early tomorrow morning and see how it goes...at least then you'll know how it'll affect you before the concert. But if you have GAs then maybe that's not such a good idea

Wow, I'm no help at all

Sounds like me. I haven't had an eye infection since I was four....until recently. I've had three of them in the past few months and have basically had a sinus infection since the end of January. I used the antibiotic eye ointment and I'm still waking up with green goo all over my face and my eye glued shut. I've been to the Dr. a few times with no real results. My mom is convinced I'm finally getting allergies and might be allergic to my cats, which sucks b/c I'm NOT getting rid of them.

OK, yeah, I did get this generic stuff, but haven't used it much since I've been needing to wear my contacts for finals and such. Maybe now I'll put it in every night after my contacts are out and see if it helps. I've noticed that even though my eyes aren't as goopy in the morning as they have been all winter/spring, they feel really dry when I first close them and try to go to sleep.

Claritin D is good stuff. Be not afraid.
