Bad Allergies

I have allergies right now so bad I am about to gorge my eyes out. They are that itchy and its not really itchy but once I rub my eyes its hurts like heck. Well thank goodness this only lasts around February-March kinda. Usually I only get it bad at nite but today I guess b/c Im not at work, its kinda making me feel the pollen or whatever it is. Does anyone else have bad allergies too? ==>

i have terrible allergies. i'm allergic to just about everything!

i get itchy eyes a lot. but there is a solution! visine makes eye drops just for allergies, and they work really well. i think it has some sort of antihistamine in it. its called visine a.c. and its made for helping with pollen, dust, and ragweed allergies. highly recommended.

also, if you have health insurance, i'd advise asking yr doctor for a zyrtec prescription. man that stuff is amazing. i've been on every allergy med available, and its by far the best.

I'm so sorry to hear that kitkat! I remember one summer where I was knocked on my rear for 4 months because of a dust storm that blew across the ocean from China and settled in the valley where I lived. I was so allergic! I even got bloody noses from the pressure in my sinuses (I've never had bloody noses before or since then).

Now I get migraine headaches when the weather changes. I've been knocked down twice just this week (I went home early yesterday).

I'm so sorry for you guys. I don't have any allergies. I have some small health problems - like law iron, bad vision,..... but I'm ok..no big deal.

Just wondering what is law iron, don't think I've heard of that before.

Its quite strange but when I put on make up the itchiness goes away and just happens at nite. So for now, off to puttin on some make up everyday.

I've never had any allergies at all until recently, and every year they get worse. The weather is changing, my eyes are watering and I just can't stop sneezing.

I think I should have said "low in iron" - the mineral iron, you know what I mean? sorry about that!

I hear you, I have terrible allergies. I notice them year-round, but they are the worst in spring and fall. I have an appointment for a physical coming up, I think it is time to get on some medication.

I have allergies to my cat, but it seems to be getting better. Maybe because I'm getting used to her? But I can't stay in the house all the time because I think then it'll be bad. I think I'm allergic to grass, but I'm not sure.
