  • Hayfever

    DI NEVER suffer from it, but suddenly have the worst case of hayfever, nose never stops running, sneezing, bad throat, earaches, and generally feel quite bad. I am trying -Demazin (now 12 hour ones, 6 hrs don'r work) and telfast once daily.

    They'e not even touching the hayfever, and the pseudoepherine which I apparently need to clear the ears is now keeping me quite awake!

    Any suggestions as to how to clear it super fast?

    I'm flying to Bali this weekend and don't wish to take it on holiday with me!
    Plus I'm not sure if I can take pseudoepherine with me to Bali.

    Thanks

    I've always used Polaromine (not sure of the spelling) ... tablets, little pink ones do fine for me, otherwise stronger blue ones are available.

      zyrtec was always good for me - or nasal sprays like beconaise (wrong spelling there im sure)

        +1 for those babies, use them after mowing the lawns at home.

              i never used to go past Polaromine either BUT then I found Beconase Nasal Spray - the best relief I've had

              I buy the 24 hour one - but still use it just before I go to bed and when I wake up in the morning....

              good luck and happy holidays!

                I got a pack of Zyrtec to help me through the first 3 weeks of hayfever season. I also was using some herbal crap before that, which was marginally effective. Zyrtec was probably the better of the two, although it did make me a little drowsy.

                  I would bet it stops straight away once you get to bali. Perth climate is exceptionally bad for hayfever.

                    If you want a short term relief, then go sit in the sauna at Beatty Park aquatic centre.

                    The heat in there will at least clear your head and nose for a couple of hours.

                      Polaramine was great, cheap and easy but caused drowsiness
                      Teldane was good, Telfast not so great.
                      Zyrtec or a same-chem ripoff (cheaper) work well.

                      These are all symptomatic relief jobs - take them when it flairs up.

                      Beconase, Rhinocort et al are cortisone type immunosuppressants which act as preventatives. If you're getting a runny nose which lasts a while, these puppies kick in after a few days and are good as long as you keep taking them. They do bugger all for itchy eyes and skin, though!

                      Generally a combination for the first week and then down to the sprays.

                      I'd double check on the hayfever guess though - I suffer badly from it but no sign at all for the last month or so. Different people have different allergies - it may be something else...



                      Good luck, I feel for you - it's bloody horrible.


                      edit -= Whoops, just read the bali bit. I went to Sipadan/Kota Kinabalu late last year and it was gone an hour after I got on the plane to get there. Two weeks of blissful non-sniff in peak hayfever season.

                      Mind you it was back with a vengeance about 10 minutes after I stepped off the plane back in Perth

                          Lol, you won't be taking it with you.
                          Different continent, different pollen, you probably won't be allergic.

                          Oh I don't think you'll have ANY issues finding it there.

                            Damn, thanks for the reminder.

                            Time to book an appointment with Dr Desensitisation, before the next round rolls in.
