Anyone else having bad allergies right now? This is the wrong time of year for me. Typically fall is my worst season, but right now I'm absolutely miserable. This summer was bad as well during the orange days, but this is almost as bad. My son is having a rough time of it as well. Anyone else? Is this typical for this area?

Ragweed, mold, all kinds of stuff this time of year. Yep - typical for some people. Wait 'till Spring.

I am the queen of allergy and sinus issues. Here is what I do/take:

Do a nasal wash every day sometimes twice
Take 1000-3000 of Emergen C every day
Take good quality probiotics twice a day
Take Oil of Oregano every other day

Use the humidifier when the heat is running

Feel better!

Actually pollen counts are very, very low this time of the year. You are probably experiencing more difficulty with indoor allergens such as dustmites. This time of the year when our houses are dry and we spend more time indoors, those are the allergens that are more problematic.

Try nasal saline spray to humidify your nose. DON'T use a humidifier as that will just increase the indoor mold counts.

If you are allergic to tree pollens, you have about three months to get on some sort of maintenance regimen (nasal steroid spray, antihistamine...) before the big spring pollen rush!

Roslyn, I feel ya! I have been sniffling, eyes red and itchy and my sinuses get really blocked up when I lay down and go to sleep which makes me wake up in the middle of the night to step out for fresh air in hopes of unblocking at leash one nostril, lol.. I was thinking its the change of weather back and forth and if you've been getting headaches just recently which I have it may possibly be the barometric pressure. Ive taken Claratin Non Drowsy formula, but it didnt do much but make me feel on edge kinda, and I was thinking of taking Zyrtec which I my doc says works pretty well. Anyone taking this now?

I have it too December 2010. It began in November while visiting relatives in douglasville, ga. we live in mountains, near north carolina, can't understand it now - itchy eyes, ears and incessant sneezing, in DECEMBER!! I am allergic to animal dander. Visited people with animals who live near a pond, since then it has been incessant. Do you have a clue what is causing it?

It's been driving me nuts, too, and this is the third year in a row! I've never had allergy problems before, even in the height of pollen season. I can manage with OTC antihistamines but it's still quite aggravating.

The only allergies I've experienced in December are from Christmas trees. We had to switch to artificial, because I get a rash when I touch them, and once they're up, I'm sneezing non-stop! But, yeah, spring... everything's yellow!
