Anyone else sneezing their @sses off? Good god I can't walk two feet without sneezing. According to Pollen.com It's cedar and Juniper but the levels are fairly low. I'm so sensitive to this. Spring should be fun lol I've loaded up on Zyrtec because I'm trying to avoid taking Benodryl which is the only thing to really work because the Benodryl makes me well.. a little wasted haha

Is it mainly outdoor or indoor? For some reason here, I have indoor allergies. But they are much worse at certain times of the year.

I moved here with bad allergies and after a year am so much better. I would suggest two things.

1. Very high quality Filtrete filters for you air handler, their best which run about $19.
2. A Roomba, yes a Roomba. Run it in your house two days in row and you will be sold when you see how much it picks up. They are awesome.

Between the Roomba and a very high quality filter you are doing wonders for indoor air quality. In fact our Roomba is at work now. Will be getting a second one soon so there is one for each level.

There is not anything blooming right now, so it must be something you exposed yourself to.

My daughter has been sneezing like crazy lately and told me it was allergies. I didn't think it could be allergies this time of year however she has had it for over a week with no other signs of a cold.....so there must be something out there this time of year making her allergies act up!

Robot vacuum that runs around by itself.

We have a Miele canister that does a great job but you need to operate it.

This will be my first Spring in this area. I've never had seasonal allergies of any sort - or at least I've never had any that were bad enough to notice.

For the past week and a half to two weeks my eyes have been driving me crazy. I feel like I have sand in my eyes and they burn and water. I've always lived in tropical climates where things are blooming year-round, so I don't know what to think.

What are the typical allergy-inducing things in this area?
