Re: grass allergy
Have you been tested for allergies? I have the usual tree allergies, but grass and weeds are the worst and grass season seems to last the longest as well. Sudafed never works for me during grass season, what seems to help is the Neti teapot, I use Benedryl because I am often sneezing, have watery itchy eyes and I start itching if grass even touches me. I am vacuuming and dusting the house often, washing all bedding, clothing, etc, use the air conditioner rather than open windows and I take a shower as soon as i come in from being outside doing yardwork or whatever.
Since your cheeks hurt, you might want to call your doctor to see if you have a sinus infection that might need treatment. Hope you feel better soon.
