Those solutions don't cut it for me, I live in the country next to a 10 acre ragweed field. This year I got a sinus infection and walking pneumonia from hay fever that started around August 1 and continues to this day; I am waiting for a nice hard killing frost. I had to take antibiotics and steroids for the infections but they didn't solve the allergy sypmtoms.

Daily I use claritin, sudafed, robitussen cough suppressant, and in dire situations benadryl, plus allergy eye drops. That only hides it for a while, it always returns. Short of getting a bubble to live in I don't know what to do, I already have a HEPA pollen filter in the bedroom. This is a yearly thing I go through, might have to move to some barren spot in Arizona or something...

I've hay fever since I was a kid. It depends on the severity but I generally use a nasal spray like Flonase and allergy eye drops. For more severe cases, I use an OTC allergy meds. I alternate between Claritin and Zyrtec.
