It's all the pollen in the air. I get sick every spring. Go to the Dr and get some Nasonex. It works wonders!!!

Yes, this is normal. Allergies are horrible here!! Nasonex is a steriod though, I would try some zyrtec first and see if that helps. My daughter is allergic to ragweed, my son pollen, and they are both having symptoms right now.

Default try Claritan

I tried every rx allergy med & over the counter & nasonex-nothing helped except 2 Claritan. A neighbor told me about it, take 2 in the morning-regular Claritan- not the one with the D. Of course I'm not a child so you might just want to give one Claritan. Had always used a RX for zyrtec does not work here- I am from Long Island it worked fine for the little allergies I had living there. It seems since I have moved here (August) I now suffer from bad ragweed and pollen. 2 Claritan. Best of Luck!

My son gets it bad this time of year because of pollen. He actually gets severe nose bleeds from it. He gets his nose cauterized (sp) this week. Nothing like waking up to find your 6 year old with blood all over his face!

He is on zytec and some other meds..... Summer time he is golden!

Yes it's normal. I never had allergies but now get "spring" headaches to go w/all the other headaches. The older 2 don't have allergies but the little one has them bad and will be starting allergy shots (ugh!). Zyrtec is pretty good and so is claritan. Both take a few days to really work, so pick one and keep taking it. I'm sending you a PM about where to get claritan the cheapest.

You know what's odd? I'm allergic to nearly everythign in the book...just moved up from Florida where I'd have constant problems of congestion and other symptoms. I move up here and I've been relatively crystal clear. I guess it's that old tale of "it takes you a while to adjust when you move." I would have said phooey to that a year ago...but now I'm living the tale!
