I'd better grow out of it, it's driving me mental :cry:

My dad's had it since he was ten, though.

I get something called Neoclarityn - tablets, & a nasal spray from the doctor. They work like magic and don't make you fall asleep. You can get them over the counter but the price is extortionate. :wink:

Don't suppose anybody's got a miracle cure?


Move to the North Pole :D

My daughter suffers terribly - she's gone through her GCSE's feeling like shit - she tries different medication, it may or may not work, and even if it does she seems to become immune after a while.

Apparently Arizona is a great place to live if you have severe allergies...might be because the landscape looks like the surface of Mars, bit of an extreme move though.

:*: It's everything I love in a plan: simple, effective, sensible...

And the same thing's happened to me. I've managed to load myself with enough anti-allergy thingies not to be the phantom sneezer in every exam (there's always one), but I've felt terrible for weeks. Yesterday just pushed it over the edge. I'm liking that North Pole idea.

It works out VERY expensive as well......I would imagine you're in the same way as my girl, if you went to the docs every time you needed some medication you'd never be away, so you end up paying 6 or 7 quid for an over the counter remedy that probably won't work!!!

It's awful, really spoils the enjoyment of the summer for you :(

Yep. That's one of the many reasons I love being in the sea in summer. Much less grass there.

I have had hay fever for years, but a few years ago I read an article which said that if you take a daily teaspoon of honey from your local area you will eventually build up a resistance to local pollen. Biologically, I don't understand how it could work, and my but I found a farm that supplies local honey and started to have honey and lemon in hot water every morning (teaspoon of honey and hjuice from half a lemon) and I only rarely now have hay fever. The article recommended that you start the 'remedy' during the winter months though ... maybe worth a try next year? You have my sympathy :cry:

Hahaha... Well, now you've said that, so do I. I'm not technically in Glasgow, though, I'm just outside. There are fields and everything.

And thanks, Jan. Any excuse for honey and lemon. I'll give it a go next time.

I looked into this - it works 'cos honey contains pollen, so a small amount a day helps your body tolerate it and build up a resistance. Thanks for reminding me - I'd meant to stock up on honey but I forgot. :roll:

Isn't that the principle behind homeopathic treatments? Now you've got me thinking :roll: my hayfever nightmares are pretty much behind me but I still suffer a bit each year ...

One of the papers today had a lot of hayfever remedies and it included a local honey - it needs to be local honey as that contains the same pollens as cause the irritations (so presumably not a 100% cure if you travel).

Ta for that - it'll probably save me clearing Tesco's out of a load of honey that won't work.

So that australian honey in the cupboard isn't going to help me much is it :roll: :roll: ... and I'll be needing at least four 'local' honeys given my wanderings.
