Does the cold weather make your allergies miserable?

Ever since it's gotten very cold and dry here, I wake up every morning having this bloody discharge when i blow my nose. I have bad allergies, but it's freaking me out since this is only occuring in the morning, then is clear for the rest of the day, not to mention that my allergies are only horrible in the morning.

It's from the heat being on at night and stirring up the dustmites (in my opinion!)...I have the same problem so I take a benedryl at bedtime...if congested when I wake, I spray the nose with saline and blow ....works very well for me...

Re: Does the cold weather make your allergies miserable?

I thought I was suffering from allergies all last week, but it turned out to be a sinus infection. My allergies do get worse during the cold weather though. Nothing works either to get rid of them. I've tried every over the counter and prescription. I can't wait for a miracle cure to come out.

Yep, running the heater is awful for your allergies. Make sure if you have to run the heat keep your room dust free as you can and have an air purifier on in your room.
