Relief for me

Postby hayfeverfreeish » Fri Dec 16, 2016 12:16 am

Hi all,

I am not one for promoting products but......
I have tried everything to relieve my hay fever.
There was the old Actifed - worked well but felt dizzy for a few weeks then bingo, but was taken off the market.
Now I have tried a steroid nasel spray called Avamys, at $50 its expensive, but what price I say?????

I still need some of those good old stinging eye drops but very few of the other symptoms, and no more of the running out of a 200 tissue box.

Maybe it will kill my sence smell but better that than running off the road while having a fit!!!!!! :D

Good luck out there my fellow sufferers.

I was recently given a prescription medication called Montelukast. OMG it is the best stuff I have ever tried. I was suffering from asthma attacks and respiratory distress then in one day felt almost normal again. The doctor said many people who normally have no problem with their hayfever medications are having trouble this season.

Hi Guys,

2017 already, we are still in winter but these last few days my hay fever is killing me.
I have tried many different tables like Telfast, Zyrtec, Claritin plus many other nasal sprays.

Does anyone has had an injection? Was it good for you? Do you have an allergic censored to advise?

Many thanks,

I had the injection 20 years ago for 2 years. Had it terrible including maniac sneezing fit’s. Worked for me and do not remember any side affects just the joy of normality. Then moved to city for 10 years and did not need it. Hay fever not bad last couple of years and controlled by tablets and drops but this year it’s back and I want to put my eyes in a vacuum sealed jar until the end of the season… unfortunately I’m Now a type2 diabetic and steroids are not recommended …

I suffered 24/7 when I first discovered I had hay fever. Then I dropped dairy products. They did not cause my hay fever but they gave me lactose intolerance. Dropping them, my body did not have to cope with the lactose. It coped better on its own and hay fever slowly became a dim memory. I stopped taking tablets!

This year I went back to dairy. While I could tolerate it in small doses, my hay fever returned after winter. Took Zyrtec but it made me drowsy. I had bought some P2.5 filters for pollution and tried them. They worked beautifully, even mowing the lawn! I have them on 24/7. They help. Stopped Zyrtec.

Found some nasal filters you put in your nostrils online. They may help.

not an endorsement but just to show what goggle brings up in oz.

may try a nasal pot [neti pot from yoga] with warm salt water. it was good years ago.
