2012 Allergies
Hi -

My 12 year old son has allergies - always has and has a bevy of symptoms - this year is even worse. I don't have them but HAVE had a few symptoms this year myself and have heard this will prolly be a bad year.

He seems to be having it all this year. Runny nose, coughing, nausea, dizziness, cold sweats (this one isn't as common but the Dr said could be related), tiredness, etc.

Is everyone else's allergies wreaking havoc as much as his this year? I feel so bad for him. He is on a pill and nose spray and it helps but doesnt cut all of it out.

It's climate change. Too warm, too much carbon dioxide in the air, and the pollen counts get worse with every passing year.

A HEPA filer in the bedroom helps a lot. Also, I rinse my sinuses with saline frequently.
