I'm sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I hope and pray you will get better soon.
Allergies run in my family. Have you seen an allergists yet? They can test you to find the things you are specifically allergic to . Therefore the medications can be specifically applied.
My allergist did say to start preparing your body ahead for the spring pollen by taking meds March 1st.You can also prepare for the fall around August 15th. My son has been on this regimen from last fall. At the height of the season he takes Allegra 180 ( the lower dosage was not doing it for him), Patanol (eye drops), and Nasonex (nose spray). After a few weeks he can make it on the Allegra 180 alone until now. He is back to the original plan because we are walking into the next pollen season - spring.
His body tends to get used to the meds so that by the start of next fall this regimen will no longer be effective for him. He will probably start taking allergy shots again in the fall. (they stopped because we had to change our doctor due to a change over to another insurance plan)
I also suffered when I was in my teens through early adulthood from pollen, dust, and animal dander. I was reactive to some foods, as well. The funny thing is they never bothered me when I was pregnant. Now that I am in my middle years as an adult , the pollen is affecting me but not as severely. I take prescription Claritan, Nasonex, and I may need something for my eyes occasionally.
Overall, were are doing quite well. I was recently told that if you stop ingesting all forms of dairy products many allergies would be eliminated.
I can no longer drink milk. I have tried soy milk which I like. And I will try rice milk. Lately, I have been using lactaid milk. It is not bad, however I am getting a rash on my hand that was not there before. My son refuses to stop drinking milk.
Love/Peace/Blessings & Respect,
