try antihistamine eye drops instead, these are usually better (for me anyway)

otherwise visit your GP and ask them =]

my hayfever was as bad as it gets this year. i was in a living hell. then i bought this nasal spray called beconase and ive not had a bout since. its a miracle

my son has suffered really badly from this for past 6 years - eyes totally close sometimes. Anyway, last year the doctor told us to try him on this little gadget that Lloyds chemist was selling for hayfever sufferers. Its two prongs you put into your nostrils and u use it for couple of minutes three times a day - well what a difference after using it for a week. We started him on this last month - and also his tablets, and so far its good. Will go find u the link for this

What are you taking at the moment?

here it is and its also half price http://www.lloydspharmacy.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=1008&storeId=90&productId=5383

If you use this in the dark you will laugh your backside off as you will look like rudolph cause your nostrils are lit up bright red!

Hayfever has ruined my sons summer holidays for years - been awful him in whilst hearing kids outside having fun - but keeping my fingers crossed this summer might be different thanks to this



edit - there is a package http://www.lloydspharmacy.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=90&catalogId=1008&productId=300005 and thats what we actually bought - and have the room thing plugged in all the time too - whether that helps I dont know, but worth a try

I've struggled with hayfever for the last 5 or 6 years. At first I just used standard hayfever tablets that you can get at boots/tesco, but I went to my GP, and got given some of this stuff: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levocetirizine. It's sold as Xyzall over here
Works brilliantly for me. It's third-gen stuff, so much better than Cetrizine and other second-gen antihistamines. Apparently the effectiveness of antihistamines wears off over time, so just changing which type you take can also help.

^^^^ this


i use piriton when i get bad otherwise i just put up with it. nothing else comes close to working. Tho a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a towel is great :thumbsup: and nasal sprays make me worse lol. Luckily, this year i seem to be suffering less, hopefully finally growing out of it.

There is a theory that if you eat honey produced locally then your hayfever will decrease. Living in a city is a problem though:) I vary the tablets I take each season, but none of them are really effective. I've been thinking of buying a spacesuit.

I've also heard that. I eat honey that is produced about 100 yards down the road from my house. Whether it works, I'm not really sure; I just like the honey :P

Mines horrendous, my eyes sometimes close totally due to the swelling, and the whites are blood red. I've tried everything (apart from the Lloyds prong thing) allergy tests, all meds the lot, and nothing is good enough. Mine also started last night. I will be giving the Lloyds thing a go shortly, as i'm sick of this stupid thing ruining my life! Its whacks me out, makes me grumpy, and thats not like me at all!! Arrrrggghh!!

put some vaseline up your nose..stops the pollen ...obviously just a small smear...dont be going around with dollops of it hanging out!!
#17
I've suffered with hayfever for the last 30 years (so much for growing out of it!) and last year I tried the lloyds prongs, which didnt do a thing, apart from making everyone laugh out loud!! I then tried cetirizine tablets and flixonase nasal spray which worked great!! They didn't cure it completely but it was the best I've been since 1979!! :w00t:

got son the prongs thing from Amazon marketplace, he says it helps with the blocked nose feeling. is hilarious watching him, nose lites up like xmas decoration.

I am trying something new this year:

It's calles Qu'chi and works with 'Acupressure'. It's basically an armband applied around the ellbow region and through pushing on a certain pressure button it stops the hayfever symptoms.

I have been eating cetirizine-tablets like cookies over the last years without too much relief, but this thing seems to be working - at least the first couple of days that the pollen are really out and active.
I was honestly very cynical about 'alternative medicins' and just bought it as I was ordering a little package (10 x 30 tablets) of the usual hayfever med and read about it on the wegpage of the same online-pharmacy. So for less than a tenner I thought I'd give it a try... let's see how it will work when the summer goes on but so far so good, not a single tablet taken.

Here the link to Amazon where they sell it for a bit over £7 at the moment:
