I've had a couple of hayfever sneezes and my eyes are itchy. So here we go again!

CalibratedNellyphant Wed 20-Apr-16 20:56:45

My hayfever has started today as well. sad My eyes have been itchy and burning all day even with an antihistamine.

Dd's kicked off a few weeks ago and we have just had to up her medication dose. Deep joy

BuonoEstente Wed 20-Apr-16 21:06:28

Started today for me with a vengeance. Dry eyes and sneezing.

Fwaffy Wed 20-Apr-16 21:08:33

Same here. I took a piriton. DD was unimpressed by my wish for a nap after.

Non-drowsy preps henceforth.

Try 6 weeks ago. And I can't take my usual stuff because I'm upduffed angry

Mine started today, I have a blocked yet runny nose and keep sneezing. Not sure what I can take as I'm pregnant.

Sew mine too sad - though at least I'm not pregnant (thank goodness, for all sorts of other reasons too grin): we need a [hanky] emoticon!

SewSlapdash Wed 20-Apr-16 21:18:33

Tip obviously talk to your GP, but I am taking cetirizine - when I was pg with DS my GP said I should be safe to take it as no recorded problems (except in very high doses in cattle but we'll gloss over those types of comparisons grin)

Mine started a month ago bit today was a very bad day, pollen higher than they said I think...plus pollution.

lorelei9here Wed 20-Apr-16 21:24:16

Can the upduffed use Prevalin? I've not tried it but heard good things.

BeastofCraggyIsland Wed 20-Apr-16 21:24:46

Mine started a few weeks ago. Pollen Joy abounds angry

BeStrongAndCourageous Wed 20-Apr-16 21:25:33

Started weeks ago for me and the DC.

Oreocrumbs Wed 20-Apr-16 21:26:06

It started here too. Took my first piriton of many to come! I have a love hate relationship with the 'nice' weather.

Mrsmorton Wed 20-Apr-16 21:26:57

Few weeks ago for me!

louisejxxx Wed 20-Apr-16 21:27:13

I envy all you people who have only started feeling it today...I've been feeling it for nearly a month but it's gone to another level in the last week or so.

Does anyone know if they have different strengths of antihistamine available on prescription? I get tablets prescribed but to be honest the barely seem to make a dent on the symptoms.

CointreauVersial Wed 20-Apr-16 21:27:16

DH is a tree pollen man, so his started weeks ago. Today DS joined in.

I'm not sure, I was driving with the windows down earlier and my eyes felt prickly it was weird, like they were about to feel itchy but didn't hmm, I was filled with dread when I realised it could be the start of hay fever sad.

vvviola Wed 20-Apr-16 21:28:18

Mine started about a month ago. But thankfully it will only last a little while longer. Cherry blossom is the only thing that affects me, so I'm usually ok by June grin

lorelei9here Wed 20-Apr-16 21:29:34

Louise, I think so, my sister has a prescription one for the whole year. I use Beconase for about eight months.

SealSong Wed 20-Apr-16 21:30:15

Yes! I have been horrific with it this week. I started my own thread earlier in desperation, someone suggested cetrizine antihistamines, I've just ordered a load.

Uuugghh it's horrrible, I feel pretty bloomin unwell.

EggbertHeartsTina Wed 20-Apr-16 21:30:31

Yes today! Not a whisper yesterday, but then today I've had itchy mouth, itchy ears and runny nose

stealthsquiggle Wed 20-Apr-16 21:30:36

I am on year round motelukast since the list of things to which I appear to be allergic got completely out of control. It does mean that I don't get the normal sniffles and sore throat.

Yesterday I discovered that it doesn't suppress everything though. Swollen eye (looks for all the world as though someone has socked me in the eye) - so now I have eyedrops and cetrizine as well. And a very swollen eye

stealthsquiggle Wed 20-Apr-16 21:32:22

Montelukast (singulair) - works better if you spell it right. Not sure I would whole-heartedly recommend it unless you are desperate though.
