In Reply to: Postman allergic to paper dust!!!! posted by Ray on January 11, 2000 at 20:50:45:

: Have worked for USPS for 15 yrs.Never had a problem with watery,itchy eyes or constant nasal drip until I had this job.After years of suffering,I had a skin test and found I was allergic to paper dust & animal dander.For the last few years have been taking Clartin and using a Nasacort inhaler.Relief is only temporary.The paper dust in my office and vehicle only make my day unbearable. Any suggestions outside of holding my breath or quiting my job?
: Thanks!

Try using a dust mask. Dust is everywhere and I know theres plenty in the Post Office. Try complaining to your shop stewart about having the area dusted or vaccumn. The mask does help. I have the same problem, I just switched to a over the counter allergy med, Teynol. Your body might get use to the Clartin. Try switching up. THe over the counter one works better for me than the doctors stuff.
