I use Zyrtec & a decongestant to thin the mucus at my allergist's suggestion when seasonal allergies flare up; Mucinex D is the one I use. Local honey in a cup of warm water first thing in the morning before you eat is a good homeopathic help. Zatidor allergy eye drops for itchy eyes.

Using honey that was locally made can help with seasonal allergies. I put some in a cup of chamomile tea. I also take a prescription medication.

I take allergy meds for now. They help, but only so much. I have so many allergies it just tones some of them down.

Have you had allergy tests to see what the problem areas are?

I use a prescribed antihistamine daily. As far as foods and drinks are concerned, where it comes to allergies it certainly isn't a one-case-fits-all scenario. I would be inclined to keep a diary of what you ate, where you went, the climatic conditions - i.e. windy(even the direction of the wind), cold, hot, smells!!! I discovered from that that a couple near neighbours had plants growing that caused me significant problems - including mimicking angina. Also on that diary, keep any symptoms you have. It makes it much MUCH easier to trace the cause of the problem.

I don't hang any of my clothing or bedding outside to dry - it all goes in the drier. That helps to prevent pollens etc. contaminating my clothing. I don't have windows open on windy days - stops pollens being blown inside. My Vacuum cleaner is a Hepa Filter one which filters out the allergens. If you are looking for a good one that is fairly cheap - Mine is a Shark Navigator - VERY easy to use and GOOD! I vacuum my mattress regularly. I also vacuum the house, generally every 4-5 days. I damp-dust to get rid of settled pollen rather than just disturbing it.

Hey! Hope you're all having a nice night. So I was wondering what you all do for seasonal allergies. Right now I'm taking NatraBio that I got from the health store. It's over the counter and homeopathic. What can I do as far as food and drinks and stuff?
