Good luck.

Yes I am on Claritin and a prescription nose spray which seems to clear up the congestion. My son went to the doctors yesterday and they concluded it was allergies so they put him on a nose spray as well. I am convinced it is due to this wacky weather. My dog is suffering from allergies too. It is still lingering and it is annoying.
