Allergies board


i would try some Zyrtec or an otc nasal spray (think nasalcrom is otc now). Are you having any pain or pressure? any mucous?

I used to get swelling on the left side of my face. Never found out what it was.. some times it would last a couple of days or a week. One thing that helped and more or less proved it was some sort of an allergy was getting a steroid shot at the allergist's office. The swelling was gone in about an hour.

good luck... do you get fatigued with this?
I will have to try the Zyrtec. I haven't had any sinus pressure or pain, which surprises me. Twice a year (spring and fall) I end up with Sinusitis from allergies, which causes quite a bit of pain.

When this happened a few years ago the only thing that would take the swelling down was an oral steriod that my dr perscribed. I just don't want to call my dr 'cause I have switched dr's and I know that I'll have to make an appointment. Silly I know, but I don't want to spend an hour at the dr. :)

Why do you ask if I'm fatigued? I actually have been overly tired the past few weeks. Thanks for your help!
