Pretty good for me, minus the ludicrous food allergies gah!, the Little has been having a rough time of it. We use a neti type device but it’s the one that looks like a turkey baster (easier, more control over the flow and it creates a seal)

It could be better, but I am feeling a bit better now that I took my daytime allergy meds and did a quick saline rinse!

As well as could be expected. I have been sparingly using the Flonase I was recently prescribed, and it seems to help some at least.

Saw a new dose of pollen on the cars today!  Took no chances and went right back on Zyrtec, with the Nasacort on the shelf if it gets bad.

+1 on the new dose of pollen!  It is out and it is READY.  I’m really considering masking up even when taking my walks at this point because my poor nose and throat can’t take much more of this lol

I had 4 years of allergy shots in my early teens. This spring has been the worst I have had since then. Zytrec and Padaday X-tra strength eye drops (used to be prescription Pazeo) & my inhaler make it bearable. Remember not to hang clothes outside to dry until pollen levels drop-or be sure to put in dryer on high for 10 mins or so to clear pollen off everything. Eyedrops kept in the fridge feel awesome on inflamed, red eyes. Good luck.

Hi Blondy, Great advice. Does refrigerating the eyedrops help take some of the initial sting out of the first few seconds after taking the drops? That’d be awesome.
