I am suffering today from Allergies. My eyes are iching something terrible. My ears are itching and I can't quit sneezing. I was going though this a few weeks ago and it got better. I do have some medicine I take for mine, Allegra, but it hasn't kicked in today yet. Mine start acting up in May. Do you suffer from Allergies? When are your the worse (certain months)? How do you cope with them, medicine, shots?

I sure do! This time of year is miserable with the pollen. My son also suffers form allergies...he take Clariten Redi-Tabs. Its a 24 hr medication, and he sleeps well with it which is so important. A good nights sleep for a child is worth millions!!!

I used to be allergy-free but now, I am suffering from allergy, the cause of which I don't know. I take zytec. This medicine isn't addictive and, it is effective. It also alleviates my itchiness. It works for 24hours. I heard from my doctor that allegies are incurable. Recognizing this fact I am in no hurry to get cured of my symtoms immediately. I need to identify the cause of my allergy. I strongly believe that the best medicine for allergy is positive thinking. Our brain controls every part of our body.

Yes, only this year I've started to develop hayfever, because my eyes have been unbearably itchy, sore, tired and red, the GP said you can contract hayfever at any stage in your life, I thought great! So she's started me off on some claritin one a day, hopefully to ease it.

I don't have these kinds of allergies but my sister does and she gets really miserable at times - eyes puff up so much she can't see, nose running like crazy, and sneezing so bad it drives even me crazy. I'm not sure what she does about it though.

Usually if i eat a lot of protein food i have allegies. Its terrible and if will happen i try ot be careful of choosing my food. Try to study what did you eat and try to avoid if it works.

Yes I do suffer from allergies but my allergies are only triggered by Cotri antibiotics - I havent 'encountered' anything else that gave me such reactions. When I have allergies from that medicine, my face swells and my lips suddenly get itchy and 'voluptuous'.. LOL It takes more than a week before I get well again. I am now avoiding that medicine now. I dont wanna repeat my serious mistake.
