just got back from the Dr's and thankfully my son is only allergic to grasses, all types of them, theres a few other things that were really slight and the GP said they are nothing to worry about, so i am so relieved , thanks to everyone who offered advice.

so once the weather clears up hubby is going to dig up all the grass round the house and lay bark & chippings

no weed for him then :w00t:

maybe a bit of decking would be an idea, bark can fly all over the place and attract lots of bugs and other animals thinking its cat litter. just my experience. glad you had good news anyhow. gd luck

Is it grass pollen your son is allergic to? if it is I'm not sure how much difference removing your grass will make as the pollen will just drift from the neighbours garden etc

im alergic to feathers

bit random i know but hey i like to share

There are some other steps you can take like keeping windows closed at certain times of the day etc

The symptoms of hay fever can be controlled in two main ways. One is to avoid the allergens and the other is take medication. Pollen and spores spread over wide distances on the wind and penetrate into houses and vehicles. It is extremely difficult to avoid contact with them completely. Sensible precautions can be taken such as wearing dark glasses to keep pollen out of the eyes, keeping doors and windows shut and avoiding places with where the pollen count is likely to be high. The worst times for grass pollen are early morning to about 10 am and then in the late afternoon and evening (unless it's raining). In most cases the symptoms of hay fever can be controlled by medication. A wide range of treatments is now available including antihistamines, decongestants and corticosteroids. Some products, such as nasal sprays and eye drops are useful if a person has localised symptoms but antihistamines are the most common form of treatment for multiple symptoms. Certain treatments need to be started before the pollen season begins in order to prevent the onset of symptoms. Some remedies are available only by prescription but many can be bought over the counter at pharmacies. In all cases it is best to discuss appropriate treatments with a pharmacist or doctor.
