So I just tried to go to the bus stop to go to college and as soon as I got there I turned around and came back home, my hayfever was so bad I could only see from one eye and could not breathe. I got there at 12:00 exactly, it's 12:16 now as I write this - bus comes about now. Thing is, I sprayed 2 sprays of Beconase Nasal into each nostril and everything. Absolute joke man... :cry:

Now I just want two packs of fig rolls (my comfort food) and to watch Netflix and cry all day, but I can't even go to Tesco!! Literally immobilised at home. I've sneezed more times in the past hour than I have in the past 5 years. AMA

update: there's also a fly in my room. :dong:

I used to as a kid yeah, weren't all that effective if I'm completely honest but perhaps thats because I was taking kids medication. I was planning on getting some tomorrow, whatever the highest strength is if they measure them like that, but that's if I can muster up enough strength to bear the outside! Might just not see me until Autumn comes chief :no:

You increase the strength by taking multiple per day (technically not recommended but I've been doing it for years and the liver failure hasn't caught up to me yet). First I tried loratadine but it made me tired and didn't really work, but I've been finding cetirizine pretty effective. They're super cheap, too.

Thanks man, made a note of em. Gonna send someone out to get them first thing tomorrow.
Right now I think I'm going to brave it and dash to the old Tesco Express near me and get my fig rolls, then cry all day. If they sell them there at a decent price I might as well pick up up when I'm there too

If this just so happens to be my last message, consider me lost to the elements. :yy:

Might be a bit of trial and error to find what works. I take antihistamines for allergies; anything with loratadine as a daily dose, acrivastine (in the form of Benedryl tablets) for quick relief if anything triggers a reaction. Ceterizine brings me out in a nasty rash; yep, I'm allergic to certain allergy tablets!

Hey I am so sorry to hear this
I can relate to this Even though I take loratadine, my hayfever flared up massively yesterday and has continued into today.
They mowed the grass outside this morning :cry2:
Thankfully it's been a little better today but yesterday was awful! Basically no vision in one eye and the other wasn't great

A hack I learned of that might help you if you're out and about if using a bit of moisturiser or Vaseline and putting a little bit below your nose and a little bit underneath your lower eyelid (not too close otherwise you might rub it in the eye :nn: ). The effect of this is supposedly to catch pollen before it enters the nose/eyes. I found it to be quite effective but obviously it wears out over time :yy:

:fyi: I have moved this thread into health in case anyone else has some good tips to share :hugs:
