take a notice glance in the area where you live on a 10 mile radius for construction site going on and for how long and that is what i am guessing--- the disturbance of the ground plus some pollen at time in the air at the same time-- mine was the 410 down from i35 past broadway 2007-2010 allergy and as of now my allergy and probably lots more people is the i35 - 1604 area 2013 -? allergy, it took me quite a while to figure it out.

Some things that I do to get by:

  • Saline Nasal Wash/Spray every morning and night, then blow nose.
  • When taking a shower and washing your hair, close your eyes and wash your eyelashes, then rinse well before opening your eyes (do this every time you take a shower).
  • If your eyes water during the day, go to the bathroom and splash water in your face and eyes.
  • Allergy meds, of course.


By the way, I have a friend who uses something called NasalCrom and swears by it, but I like the plain old saline nasal spray; the one I use is called Simply Saline.

I've noticed that Allegra works a lot better for me than the cheaper alternatives, even though they used to work fine for me. This year has been worse for allergies.

Make sure you don't use tap water in that neti pot.

As posted above, IF using a neti pot it is VERY important that you used distilled H20 vs tap water because there have been incidences where people have DIED from strange critters present in the cities water systems.

I am NOT advising at all, but after a oral steroid burst on Friday that lasted less than 24 hours and now a steroid shot yesterday (that seems to be working GREAT)! I have a friend at work that "recommended" an OTC allergy med that is like true psudeaphed...you have to show you drivers license to get it....but MAN....GREAT stuff! Go to HEB or wherever and ask for "aprodine" tablets. 1 every 4 hours....NO sneezing, NO runny nose, NO pain and suffering...actually feeling human. YES, I realize it might be the combo for me, but my friend at work was just as miserable and doing just as well with just the "aprodine" vs my shot and that med.

Only trying to help those suffering as greatly as I have these past few days...sleeing a total of 6 hours last night was SOOOOOOOO exciting I was so very sleep deprived...

This year has been extremely bad for me too. I had cedar fever so bad this year that I thought it was a mild flu.

Thanks for the tips. I need to change my allergy meds. I take allegra in morning and evening but it just isn't helping.

Try that stuff you can get OTC at HEB...the BEST $5 you have EVER spent!!!! Praying your feeling better soon....take it from someone that feels like they can kick a$$ and take names after just ONE night of good sleep!!!
