Pollen just about kills me every year. Ugh.

If you are able to, cut the stamens off any bunches of flowers and this will help with the pollen (if you can do it outdoors or get someone else to do it).

Watched an interesting programme on parasites the other night which shows there is a correlation between lack of intestinal worms and the rise in allergy/hayfever sufferers. Who know's, in the future you may have to drink a "worming" paste to get worms rather than remove them from your system to stop the immune system from going into hyperdrive.

I have been getting allergy shots now for amost a year and they have been helping me. I'm had allergies to dust, mites, mold and all kinds of pollen. Once the weather gets warmer look out "Allegra".

I hate Claritin for allergies (although Claritin-D is my favorite when it comes to congestion). Allegra is where it's at...and it's non-prescription in Canada.

Zyrtec is a fantastic allergy drug - it's harder to get here than narcotics. My husband has been on it for the last few years and I've never seen anyone as bad as him with allergies, he's still getting weekly shots at the doctors because he's allergic to EVERYTHING. Between his allergies and my sinus problems, we go through kleenex like crazy. I"m also allergic to augmentin.

But my main point is - you're supposed to take Zyrtec at bedtime because sleepiness is a common side effect. It'll stay in your system and keep you covered.

Have you seen an allergist or immunologist? You may be a candidate for shots. My husband would never survive on Zyrtec alone.
