Well, it is official. My own 'allergy season' started this morning. You know, the usual symptoms: sneezing and itchy nose and coughing. I don't have the itchy eyes yet, it'll come sooner or later I'm sure of it. We need to stock up on Claritin-D, both dh and I have Spring allergies although we have different kinds. Only downside to this medicine is it makes you very thirsty. I find myself waking up in the middle of the night to drink some water. I don't mind though, it's better than having a restless night not being able to breathe.
I'm allergic to tree pollen while he is allergic to grass. I started having hay fever allergies while in CA, I've been living there for 3 years when my allergies started. I thought I had the flu or cold so I went to my primary care doctor and he said that it is just hay fever. Funny, but I haven't had any allergies growing up. I read somewhere that when a person moves to a new location, something triggers your allergies. We go through a lot of facial tissues during this time. If you suffer from hay fever like we do, I suggest using facial tissue with lotion like Puffs-Plus. It definitely is better than regular tissues. It is softer and will not dry out your skin. I hope this year my allergies won't be as bad as the past few years. :(
Do you have allergies?
