Found 8th Apr 2014
First post, so guidance probably necessary..

Not sure if it's online, not sure if national

Summer is here, so this might come in handy, used to be £5 and now reduced to clear, never tried this myself, but the pills sometimes don't seem to work, so I'm open to giving this a try, I'll report back on whether they work or not, on the sides of the packaging, it had some awards for best organic product, trustworthy enough i suppose!

Bought from Shoreham

OK great, will do, any idea how to tilt the picture as well? And is it possible to edit post on the app?

Does anyone know if this is safe to use during pregnancy? Dreading the summer months without antihistamines

Use Vaseline around your nose that will stop the pollen going up

Will definitely be looking for this!

Yes, it states I in the side of the packaging:- "suitable for children and pregnant women" obviously this stuff isn't meant to be used internally, only around base of nostrils

Fingers crossed you have the same experience as I did. After terrible hayfever from the age of nine, mine totally disappeared when I was pregnant, and never came back again!

If this balm ins't suitable, there is a little powder spray you can buy which Im sure is safe. It just coats the inside of the nostrils so stopping the pollen.

This stuff works like magic! hot hot

I've had "hay fever" since I was 14.

In all honestly nothing really ever made any difference at all for me when living in temperate climates. Living in a tropical climate completely stopped my allegies.

If this balm actually works then all you really need to do is breath through your mouth and be cured of "hay fever".....

The other elephant in the room for me is that if you have actuall allergies, then 99% of the time you can't breathe through your nose anyway as it is completely blocked up.

The most effective treatment I've used to date is Cetirizine which can be picked up in Aldi and Poundland etc.

I was very sceptical but a German colleague recommended it to me and I have to say I've been very impressed!

I've had hay fever from when i could remember, Centirizine works, but i find that i need switching between them from loratidine as well, and some days neither of them work, so thought this extra bit might help, i tend to get sniffles as opposed to a blocked nose anyways. I've stocked up on this for the summer just in case they do work, fingers crossed they work!

Yeah it's been the only thing that's had any effect at all for me - other medications would try to knock me out - even the supposedly non-drowsy types! Cetirizine does make me somewhat tired but at least it works to stop the other symptoms.

It's that good for me that I'm actually quite happy to cut the grass!!!

Cetirizine at night, a Loratidine in the morning!

Get them from one of the online ones, but since I now have a prepayment card I'm going to the Docs!

Now is the time to start buying local honey. Put it in all sorts of meals, on toast, cereal. Started using honey a few years ago. Works really well. Remember to get it as local to where you live as possible. Most decent farm shops and natural remedy shops will sell it. Round my way it's about £5 a jar. Great if you don't want to fill your body with tablets.

You say that nothing really helped, now you say that you can happily cut the grass if you use Cetirizine, which is it?

When I had hay fever, NOTHING worked for it well, I even had steroid injections it was so bad. However, I think it's well worth it for anyone to try the balm before tablets, or as well as tablets, if they don't work very well on their own. Everyone is different.

What??? The whole point is that the balm catches the pollen in your nose as it's getting into your system. Just breathing through your mouth would do nothing, the pollen would still be getting into your system, albeit not via your nostrils.

I only starting using Cetirizine in the last 3 years and that's been the only thing that was/is effective. Is it hard to understand that I ended up with a recommendation of what finally worked for me?

I also had the steroid injections which did nothing at all - that was in the past BEFORE Cetirizine.

You can't honestly consider that there is a thick enough mesh of nostril hairs and balm to stop all of the pollen surely?

The hairs in most peoples noses will catch a tiny percentage of pollen but the vast majority is going straight through to the lungs and blood stream. At least it would be with my hooter

The pollen also goes into your eyes not just the nose. Drive with the car window open or ride a motorcycle and you'll have itchy eyes in no time at all.
