    They Are Somewhat Annoying!!

    Certain times of the year (like right now), I will be plagued by allergies. Lots of sneezing, itchy eyes constantly and a strange, very itchy rash on my legs below the kneecaps. I don't know if it's ragweed, or what; additionally, my roommate is a chain smoker (Marlboros), so I'm...

    It's right on time. My nose is running,

    throat itching. Just closed the windows and blasted the dehumidifier. I noticed a small bump at the back of my throat.When I cover it with my tongue, the itching goes away. But the itching is soo annoying. My eyes and throat. This is my fifth year I believe with allergies.

    Oddly enough, I have discovered this year, that just prior to a big sneeze I feel incredibly nauseous.  Once I let go of a thunderous sneeze the nausea disappears.  I have never experienced this sensation before this year.  Weird.   Anyone have...
