    Beconase is the bees knees.

    One spray in each nostril every day seems to do me grand. Have two in each if i know i'm going to be spending a lot of time outside.

    Cetirizine, every day, and when it's bad some beconase. After a while on Cetirizine you won't need the beconase at all. I have year round rhinitis and it does the job. 2 for 30 tablets means it costs 24 a year, which isn't that bad really.
    Had an awful week this week with my hay fever, thought I was doing fine then it hit me really badly. My nose was dripping, my eyes were all red and closing up, I felt drowsy and had a headache... and then came the nose bleeds :(

    I usually use Loratadine tablets and Beconase spray but they seemed to do fuck all this time, so I've got some of those Cetirizine hydrochloride tablets cubby mentions in his post today, along with an allergy spray that has a different corticosteroid called Fluticasone as its key ingredient (Beconase key ingredient is Beclometasone). The expensive brand of the new spray is called Pirinase, but I got a generic Boots version cheaper.

    Had a couple of squirts of the new allergy spray earlier on and I think I'm already feeling a fair bit clearer headed so hope it's a good sign!

    Yeah, mine completely screwed me this week.. got some prescription tablets (fexofenadine) and some spray (fluticasone). Seems to be under control for once!

    The idea is you find locally produced honey that's unfiltered. Not exactly easy (or cheap!) but it's supposed to naturally build up your tolerance to it.

    Take a tea-spoon of honey every day (all year round)... I tried it for 2 years and it did appear to work... Stop doing it and it comes back however.

    It can just suddenly affect you at any age?

    It's basically your body's response to what it perceives as an attack (like an immune response)

    There's no proof this actually works.

    I did say it appeared to work. It wasn't an endorsement and it's back just as bad as ever this year!

    Sadly yes. Mine kicked in suddenly in my mid 20s.

    The hay fever seems particularly bad this week in London, bastard plant sperm everywhere.

    Yeah, think mine arrived in my mid 20s. My prescription stuff is totally kicking it's arse though, such a bloody relief :)
  • Deleted user 28 June 2013 18:40:21
    My hayfever started during the summer of 1976 when we had the hottest temperatures since records began. I still get it, but it hasn't been bad for something like a decade, haven't used hayfever cures since 2009 and these days I only get hayfever symptoms round about March/April when there is loads of tree pollen in the air. I used to dread the grass pollen in August O.O

    I haven't slept in days. I've given up on Loratadine and just bought some of the hardstuff, 10mg Cetirizine. I've also ordered that red light thingy that stone linked earlier. Allergy wise, this is most miserable summer I've ever had. Severe eye pain, coughing, insomnia, constant congestion which is worse at night time.

    I double up on loratadine and cetirizine, and take more than the recommended dose of cetirize. My GP said you can take up to like 4 or 5 cetirizine in a day. I do about 3 of them. Interested by this red light thingy, let me know if that does anything

    Pollen count must have been astronomically high....don't usually suffer, but Sat and Sun was sneezing like a bastard all day. Seems to have calmed down now, thank fuck. Don't envy you poor bastards that get it badly

    I seem to be fine pretty much anywhere apart from at work. Even if I don't medicate up, at home or outside I'm a bit sneezy at worst, but as soon as I get into the office it's like a nose tsunami for the first two hours of the day, regardless of what I take.

    Fucking annoying.

    Right I've ordered one of these nose light things. I'll have a punt for a tenner. I've spent that on tissues in two weeks some of which were used for blowing my nose
