Common allergies during spring

Common Questions and Answers about Common allergies during spring


12498457 tn?1425603087 When the weather changes from winter to spring-like conditions, my seasonal allergies kick in full force. So, the pressure buildup and sneezing fits (6+ in rapid succession) get worse. Allergy meds only help so much leaving me miserable and hoping I don't have a massive pain episode at work. Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts on how to lessen the sneezing at least? With hopes that I'll be able to function at work until the end of March?
Avatar f tn My allergies got much worse during tx. Don't think it has anything to do with Hep. C, but with the treatment for Hep. C. Took Claratin and Benedral for the allergies. Never had Asthma.
Avatar n tn One way to deal with it is to try an elimination diet, where you get rid of most everything you eat and slowly add in foods one at a time, since food allergies are quite common. Certain foods will also make allergies worse by increasing inflammation -- most common are wheat, dairy, and sugar, but anyone can have food intolerances to just about anything.
Avatar n tn Hi. I've never suffered from allergies before and I'm 19. From late November onward I started suffering from severly itchy eyes which turn red. Then over the course of the next weeks it would be accompanied with sneezing, itchy throat and runny nose. I know it can't be a cold because it comes and goes during the day and I've had it for almost 2 to 3 months now. Could I be suffering from seasonal allergies?
Avatar f tn I believe that genetics increase the likelihood of some allergies, but dont guarantee that it will be passed on. Peanut allergies, for example, are more common in children if one of the parents have that allergy.
Avatar f tn is it me or does it seem like when allergies flare up, it's so much harder to deal with during pregnancy than before pregnancy?
Avatar m tn If eating brings this on, you probably also have food allergies that arise more strongly during allergy seasons. One thing you can do on your own is cut out dairy and wheat, the two most common allergenic foods, and see if this improves. You can experiment with your diet in other ways as well. What you want with your problems is an anti-inflammatory diet, meaning avoiding pro-inflammatory foods. Dairy is the worst, but different individuals have different ones.
Avatar m tn I used to take allergy shots but finally got too frustrated and stopped. In the past few years during spring time for 1-2 months I used the nose spray which is a steroid. Of all medications, this is the only one that has been very helpful. Since steroids are not recommended for those with Lyme, I'm curious what allergy sufferers do about this? I figure that this is relatively low dose and should be OK, but thought I would solicit opinions. Thanks.
Avatar m tn In temperate climates, PMLE is usually rare in the winter, but common during the spring and summer months. In many cases, the PMLE rash returns every spring, immediately after the person begins spending more time outside. As spring turns into summer, repeated sun exposure may cause the person to become less sensitive to sunlight, and the PMLE rash either may disappear totally or gradually become less severe.
Avatar n tn everyday and night with maybe a few hours in between when it stops. It actually started being chronic last Spring...then it seemed to go away at he end of June and during July. But two weeks ago it returned with a vengeance. Please what can I do???
Avatar f tn My winter asthma definitively increased with the pregnancy and now that Spring is coming I have more sinusitis. Yous doctor can probably prescribe some allergy medication that are deemed safe during pregnancy. I have been using a Neti pot every day for months now, with saline solution: you can try this natural way and see if it brings any relief (I also use an inhaler for my asthma).
Avatar f tn I'm 7 weeks today and I have always had the worst allergies, does anyone have any suggestions for help?
Avatar f tn Since then, I have done my own research and thought it could be a form of eczema as if only comes up during the spring when my allergies are bad and it can kind of flairs and then goes back down. BUT I was given eucrisa and it has done absolutely nothing to help. Some of the bumps have white heads on them and stuff comes out but some of them are just red. Please help!!!!
Avatar f tn I'm 12 weeks... Usually I don't have allergies but this spring I am going crazy. Puffy eyes puffy nose, and lots of sneezing!!
746512 tn?1388807580 Alright, need some input or personal experience. This is the three year in a row that my allergies/asthma (or non-asthma who knows) is getting worse from middle of november into december. This can't be due to the cats since I am down one cat now and I have NO ALLERGIES in the spring with increased shedding. It is worse when I go outside and if I'm in and out at work or if it's busy and the door is constantly opened and closed I also have worsening symptoms.
Avatar f tn t even test him because she said by looking at him she could tell he does not have allergies. The symptoms clear up in the summer and do not return until spring. What in the world could this be? We are desperate for answers! Thanks!
Avatar f tn I have been off the meds for about 3 weeks or so and I had severe allergies prior to tx. I did not realize but the allergies were improved while on tx. and now they are back full force. I am assuming that in some ways my immune system was suppressed and other ways it was working very well. Anyone have any ideas or experience this?
Avatar f tn Yes Zyrtec and Claritin are fine - my allergies were insane this spring during dirst trimester so I researched it very carefully and talked to my doctor. Benadryl is also completely safe although it knocks me out like a sleeping pill. Which is helpful if you need a sleeping pill!
Avatar f tn Yes very common in pregnancy plus with spring on its way people allergies going crazy try non drozey benadryl its safe while pregnant and also salt water up the nose really works well for me when I feel like you good luck hope you feel better soon♡
Avatar m tn I have Fall allergies which they normally call hay fever as does he but he also has a flare of spring allergies. Our allergist said this is from blooming plants, leaves budding out on trees, etc. They are emitting things that they do so less during the warmer summer months. Do you use anything like claritan? My son uses that and a saline nasal wash. It helps.
Avatar n tn I had moderate allergies prior to taking Zoloft, and virtually no allergies while taking it, although I occasionally took Claritin for spring allergies.
Avatar f tn Yes, I definitely need Advair during the Spring, Summer and Fall. Lots of allergies! Thanks for your help!
Avatar f tn I have horrible allergies also my dr told me that i could take Benadryl, or Claritin as long as it was not the D kind. This is my thrid and my first two i lived off Benadryl during the spring and fall they are now 6 &4.
Avatar f tn Then it feels like I am having trouble breathing which makes me panic. I was fine during the winter. This happened to me last spring and now I find it is happening again this year. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn Several small problems with my allergies have snowballed. I am not sleeping well at night which started more than a year ago when my allergies (to pollens, animals, grasses, etc.) worsened in the spring. My husband noticed that my breathing became so shallow that I would stop breathing for a second then catch myself. Sometimes that lack of sleep would take a toll -then on a good night, I would sleep like a rock. Lately I am not bouncing back so well.
