  • Hayfever

    It seems the hayfever season has set in once again, and we're all left with itchy ears, eyes, and running noses, and it seems to get worse every year.

    I've taken a number of anti-histamines and other stuff to try and help, but never seem to be able to stop the itchyness in my ears.

    What's everyone's secret remedy?

      Funny you should mention this as just this morning I started sneezing my head off It has actually started later this year I have been using Sudafed antihistamines and a Beconase nasal spray during the day lately with good affect. They usually make me a bit drowsy at first but then my body gets used to them and I am fine although I do tend to sleep better at night as I usually try and take them in the evening or just before bed. I have tried most on the market over the years since I have had hay fever since ~8 years of age, in fact when I was a kid I needed a prescription only antihistamine as it was so bad but am much better now Another thing to be aware of is what the triggers are, as in my case it is grass seed, I can walk through a florist shop no problem but walk past a vacant lot with that "wild oats" type long grass and start sneezing like crazy I haven't had much luck with the "non drowsy" hay fever treatments, sure they don't make me drowsy but they also don't get rid of the bad symptoms either

        these are what i take for hayfever but you need to start drinking water in about 1/2 hour as they really really dry you up

            Zyrtec work for me if I have just as it starts.

            In full swing I found rhinocourt wasn't enough, Nasonex is an even bigger and better 'roid.
            Not particularly good for ya. But sure as shit sorts the sinus out nearly instantly.

              My biggest problem is the itching eyes and ears/throat, so nasal sprays are for the really bad days.

              If my nose is runny the Demazin 12hr tablets work, but riding the bike gets the pollen in my eyes, same stuff as what Taz posted (minus the painkillers).

              At home we've got the rye grass over the back fence, a couple of giant eucalypts, and a heap of smaller plants, so whatever there is to be allergic to, it's probably close at hand.

                    I'm using Zantac (or Zirtek, whichever is cheaper for the same thing) this season because I forgot the whole desensitisation thing AGAIN and now it's too late for this year.

                    I went for four years getting a series of 3 or 4 cortizone shots in august/september and then not having one sneeze. That's rolling in grass clippings and watching pollen thick in the air for the first time I can remember.

                    Now the GPs won't do it any more, apparently osteoporosis and cancer are somewhat more inconvenient than hayfever

                        If the itchy eyes in particular are a problem try Zaditen eyedrops- can buy over the counter at your chemist. Oral antihistamines can be tricky as they will take care of the sneezing/itchy nose but can dry the eyes more and increase the discomfort. Have used Zaditen on alot of people who have come in with seasonal hayfever (which has been a shocker this year) with good results- failing that a script from your doctor for Patanol normally sorts it out.

                              I cop the itchy eyes, sneezing, followed by a runny nose

                              Phenergan works for me (antihistamine) ... I take the 10mg ones ... any stronger and they tend to make me drousy
