View Full Version : Allergies.

I'm fairly new to the allergy scene. Which is long enough to know it sucks. My nose used to be the prime target of the allergies, but it seems to have migrated to the eyes. what's is a good way to keep myself from clawing my eyes out? medicine, eyedrops, etc.?

I use visine allergy drops at night -- helps me sleep w/o scratching my eyes. Best thing you can really do is get on some kind of allergy medication which will help dry out your sinuses and help your eyes. I'm on something called Nasonex which is a non-addictive nose spray and it's really helped.

I use to use eye drops but they seem to agitate it more.
I don't usually take medication for it since I have not been having the bad cases of allergies like I use to have.
If you don't want to take medication then main thing is try to keep the pollen off of you. Wash your hair and stuff and stay indoors (preferable with AC) Try not to touch your eyes much.... (easier said then done :P )Allegies are not that as bad as it use to be for me, either I got tolerance to it or I am just not in the same area as before.

non-drug management is best if it works, but if you get desperate, triprolidine + pseudoephedrine kills all itches, nose and eyes, like a charm. leaves me with a pounding heart and dry mouth, but it works. none of the other overthecounter pills work even half as well. i think those are the ingredients of sudafed or somethin, but i don't know cuz i always buy generic.

try chlor-trimetine. Don't bother with Benadryl. It doesn't work. I'm fairly allergic to pollen and animals and I've had the hardest time finding a over the counter drug that works, and this one actually works.
Alcohol is the cure all for me. Have a few beers and I'm passed out for the night. THough it does make waking up a little harder.
