    Unhappy These Allergy Symptoms are KILLING ME!!

    My allergy symptoms are off the hook. I take my Zyrtec everyday, use my eye drops, nose spray, and Benadryl. I even take my itching medications prescribed. However, I still get stuffy and runny nose, break out in hives, rashes, hotspots and swollen eyes. They also itch. I try to cool my skin off with alcohol, showers, but nothing helps. The skin peeling hurts, the sneezing is incessant, and the headaches and dizziness are crippling. How else do I cope with this? My allergist is state renowned so she never returns anyone's calls... please... help...

    Why are you not on injections? And have you tried 2 zyrtec a day - one AM and one PM? What all are you allergic to?

    Well the doctor said no more than one, and she hasn't put me on injections for some reason. I'm allergic to blackberries, ibuprofen, soy, and lactose. And of course, I've got seasonal allergies. I've also got Lupus.

    I think it would be wise if you found another doctor PRONTO!
