Every since this weather system came through my area three days ago I have been sneezing, coughing, and with a itchy throat. I feel awful, I guess it’s the cedar pollen. Is there any type of home remedy that I can take? I don’t want to take anything that might make me drowsy. I was glad of the rain but it bought this problem too, but we needed the rain badly we been in a drought for several years now. With all the rain the system bought we are still in a drought. I guess it will take a tropical storm or hurricane to get us out of it.

Mine will probably never go away now. I have a new rare condition that only Asthmatics and people with Cystic Fibrosis get call (and this a mouthful) Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis, and if a person has this, then anabolic steroids are your option. For normal people, just simple Allergy medication like Allegra or Singulair would work.

I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. With some changes in the weather, a lot has been suffering from sickness so it is a must to take an extra care of ourselves. I suggest that you take vitamin c which is known to be very good in dealing with problem such as yours. Also, you may want to take more fruits and vegetables because these things are good for your health as well. Take care and get well soon.

I am sorry to hear that you get seasonal allergies. Then you have no choice else, just learn to live with it. I hope you are fine now. I think you can go to see doctors then they can give you a cure for it.

One thing that my mom finds helps a lot is local honey. The bees use the same pollen that makes you sneeze to make their honey and it actually helps with allergies. Try finding some local honey, if possible. Use it in your tea or coffee.

one thing i heard about is making a citrus juice with a juicer. i don't know if you have one, but maybe you could eat it instead of drink. mix oranges, lemon, lime, and honey, and cayenne pepper. if you have a juicer, juice the whole fruit when you cut it up. don't skin it. make about 1 cup and drink one in the mourning and one in the evening before you go to bed. i tried this remedy once. i did it for about a week and it worked within that time frame. i hope you see some results, whatever method you choose.
