Re: really annoying allergies
Doctors believe that breathing the pollen directly and post-nasal drip may both play a role in allergic asthma. Possibly a decongestant (like Sudafed) could improve your situation.
Definitely, this is a bad month for someone allergic to weeds and grass (like me!) After the first frost, you should be MUCH better.
You may need a daily controller medicine for the asthma. I'm doing much better since I started on Symbicort, for example. Also, you should minimize time spent outside or near open windows, and shower before bed and keep your polleny clothes outside the bedroom. Sleeping in a very low-pollen place can make it much easier for your body to deal with pollen in the day time.
Eventually, you may benefit from allergy shots, but that's a long-term solution.
