I've been seeing commercials for allergy blockers that I guess is like a gel or something you put on the outside of your nose? has anyone tried this? Does it work? Which brand? Can people see you have something on your nose?

Good post Rapture. I was curious about that also. If it works like they say it does, it should be a good thing to try. Hopfully someone will answer who has tried it.

This product works amazingly so kept me out of the hospital from major ashma problems due to allergies. The clorespectic one in the small gel. Best product for the money and as many uses you get out of the tube a real life saver vs all of the pills and such that people take. I would swear by this for small children even if you just have a a cold and such this stuff is amazing for allergies. An allerlgist really needs to endorse this product.

Have you considered using a neti pot and cleaning out your nasal passages that way.
It's a saline (water & salt) solution to clean you out naturally.

I suggested this to a friend who was taking several allergy pills a day, now she's down to one every week or so.

No guarantees, but a simple and natural suggestion that worked for me and others.
Nasal irrigation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I use the blue and clear type.
Do Neti Pots Really Work? Doctors recommend nasal irrigation, too.

I would be cautious about "blockers" - in many cases an allergy is a block.
For example, if you're allergic to Vitamin C, your body can be blocking the absorption of Vitamin C - throwing too much Vitamin C at your body may result in other systems going a bit haywire.

Get a sample before you pay for a script. My mother tried that and she said it just seemed like nasal spray. Another option to try is just have two glasses of water when your allergies coming on. This works well with whatever you combo or just alone. Also flush out your eyes with cool water if you can.

I notice that any rinse or water drinking makes you need less of whatever product. So if its just drinking or a neti pot. Its definitely worth the try to see if it works for you too.
