Has anyone seen their allergies almost disappear from being inside all the time due to the lockdown?
Good to know that your allergy has almost disappeared. I too have an allergy and I am staying at home but it hasn't affected my allergy. It is the same as it was before but sometimes it gets worse while staying at home.

Nope, my allergies are the same every year. I have not had to be in lock-down because I am considered an essential worker. I will say my allergies were a little better this years than in past years but I still have them.

My allergies are SO BAD today!!! I can barely even see as my eyes are constantly watering up. Have sneezed over and over and have some coughing and a headache. Totally miserable right now.

I couldn't take it anymore as I'm operating on one eye and one nostril (other one completely dripping and useless), so put in my window A/C, closed all of the windows and my slider doors. I prefer natural fresh air but the pollen and dust have gotten to be too much.

I wish they would disappear.

The only benefit is being able to control the environment at home better. I find travelling on public transport a nightmare for my allergies as the air is so poor. Although, not an allergic reaction, I find simple things like perfume people wear acting as a strong irritant which triggers a pseudo-allergic reaction, so being away from other people definitely helps.

Have you been wearing a mask? Depending on the mask and they type of allergy it may help reduce the severity of the allergy. Some people wear masks for dust and pollen.

Well my food allergies are still the same, as expected, but when I step outdoors the seasonal plants and their pollen seem to find my direction.

No, but here’s another angle.

I’m a truck driver, so I never locked down. I’m in a metal can for almost all of my day. It traps all kinds of dust and dirt, not much of a filter.

I get badass morning allergies. Sniffles, sneezes...and coughs. Awkward going into the store for my morning joe and a poo.

No one bit. Whatever is blooming out there is coming in through my windows and hitting me whenever I'm outside. I was having coffee with a friend outside and my eyes and nose were causing me grief.
