    My allergies where acting up

    for the first time this year today. It was terrible. Nose running and blocked, sneezing which made my nose bleed and itchy eyes. I didn't have any allergy medication I could take.

    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.

    Mountain Cedar...

    Mountain cedar pollen is in the air from about mid-December until as late as March. It is the only time of year when I suffer from allergies so the doctor does not recommend shots. He recommends antihistamines. They work wonders for relieving allergy symptoms but I have a very...

    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...
