Well, I am flabbergasted and exhausted
I live on the east coast and have already suffered 2 rounds of severe allergic reactions to the environment, (go figure), so i will be going through several tests to find the culprit,
My symptoms include itching, stinging skin, swelling, puffiness, wheezing
and difficulty swallowing, general angioedema, urticara. (Bah Humbug!!!)
I've already ahd to take prednisone twice and Decadron shots in between, (there goes my beautiful skinny figure!!
Well anyways, since it started very early February, i didn't feel that there was any significant amount of pollen to trigger these episodes, but I read
online about some cedar trees and other crap!! and my severe outbreaks aren't responding to anything right now but prayer...
So does anyone have any experiences to share along with treatments of any kind??
Thanks in advance

scratch,itch,scratch some more, itch some more, try not to scratch and try not to itch.....the life of allergies

Awe Gee! Thanks for reminding me that season is right around the corner.. Have you tried flushing them out with one of those flush kits you can get at the drug store or a nedi pot.. Worked wonders for mine and I am never without one of those kits nearby.... allergy meds too.. They say, getting honey from your local area and eating that helps... I started the self flushing them out and the honey at the same time so I can't swear which one worked the best for me... maybe both.. I just know I do not have to see the doctor hardly any for allergy or sinus problems anymore, now all I use is OTC stuff and that is hardly ever.

I am an oddball. My allergies start in the fall when the air is thin/cool and crisp. I breath so much better in the hot/humid weather...lol. No problems in the spring either.
