    While it's actually raining you're all right, but as soon as it stops the bastard plants spray more sperm into the air to make up for lost time. Fuckers.
    I'm convinced there is also some kind of evapotranspiration thing happening after it rains. As in, the rain soaks the pollen, the sun evaporates the rain and it takes the pollen up into the air with the water vapour. The wind-bourne pollen is tiny (so the wind can carry it, obviously). Thats the stuff we're allergic to.

    I'd rather not and don't call me honey.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Enough with the prejudice already!

    That thing I said a page or two back about my Hayfever being a lot better this year... Yeah, well, it doesn't extend to walking in fields. My EYES. My poor red raw eyes!

    Went to the coast today (well, Whitstable, so not really the coast). No hay fever. Well, a little, but hardly anything at all.

    Have come home...hay fever. Sticky eyed hay fever, all in 15 minutes. Goats. Cock. Suck. Of. The.

    I always found my hayfever worse in london, the pollution from the traffic & the horrifying black dust on the underground are no good for hayfever.

    Although the ozone at the seaside can be bad for hayfever symptoms the wind generally being off the sea results in symptomless day.

    Enjoying a second year with no symptoms... I don't know if it is the lousy weather or I've out grown it.

    btw stay away from oilseed rape - murder on your eyes & nose.

    That's if you can find any honey that hasn't been privatized by a mutualized bank. ;)

    Eyes on fire last night; missus came to my rescue with what sounded like a ridiculous old wive's tale.

    Warm camomile teabag over each eye. Laid down for ten minutes - felt back to normal once they came off. Was very skeptical but it worked a treat.

    Pro-tip: Let the teabags cool down a bit first. (Although they need to have boiled up for a while beforehand.) Also, make sure your family don't have a camera handy when you're laying there, looking like a dickhead.

    Holy shit this actually works,



    tldr:
    Hold nose and close mouth
    walk 20-25 steps briskly without breathing whilst holding nose
    sit down and take short breaths with your nose only
    nose completely unblocked

    The above breathing exercise really has worked wonders for me, I can do it now from a sitting position without walking. I just hold my breath, rotate my shoulders or swing my leg for 25 seconds then breath short shallow breaths through my nose and voila my nose completely unblocks. It can be quite difficult at first as it can feel like you're suffocating, in a way I guess you are but its only brief and you get used to the sensation soon and your body doesn't panic as much, it's a bit like training to hold your breath under water.

    Shut up with the fucking local honey bollocks.

    Anyway, my hayfever seems fine now. More or less the same as last year.

    Yeah, the worst of it seems to be over I think. Until the sun decides to come out again.

    I've been fine so far thanks to the crap weather.

    On a side note, I also fall foul of the local honey wives-tale, partly for the placebo effect, but mostly because just I love spooning yummy honey into my trap like Winnie the Pooh.

    "Now, when you go after honey with a balloon, the great thing is not to let the bees know you're coming.

    If you have a green balloon, they might think you were only part of the tree, and not notice you, and if you have a blue balloon, they might think you were only part of the sky, and not notice you, and the question is: Which is most likely?"

    :)

    Get some of this.

    It works a treat. Not the most pleasant thing to use but it gets the job done. It's the only thing that has ever worked for me.

    You can't complain if you're just starting to get allergies really.
    Early Feb, with snow on the ground, I was getting massive allergy symptomes. Sneezing, runny, eyes, runny nose, itchy feeling on the roof of your mouth.

    Checked out what on earth could be causing that in early Feb and it turned out these fuckers are related to birch and were already shaking out pollen.

    I know how you feel, its horrible. Thankfully it hasn't started properly for me this year yet. Also I have to work in a dusty warehouse, which makes it ten times worse....horrible feeling. Nothing seems to get rid of it for me :/

    Ive had a few sniffles recenly and bunged up nose, but nothing too horriffic. Only thing that works for me is steroids, which I'm getting a course of next week.

    Hoping for a mild summer, as my local aea if utterly surrounded by farmland.

    Make sure to turn your pillow over before going to bed. Or better yet, cover it with a throw during the day and keep the bedroom door and windows closed. Worst but about hayfever is trying to get to sleep and being made to suffer from near-instant concentrated snotty horror the second you put your head down.

    The trees are trying to kill me!
    Apparently 60-80 pollen / cubic meter can trigger allergic reactions. It varies a bit per person.

    There's currently about 800 / cubic meter and my left eye is leaking despite antihistamine, nose spray and eye drops.

    Not a cheerful picture.

    Last year I walked through a field on the way to work.

    I couldn't see for about 4 hours.
