I developed grass allergy when I was 23. It is my only allergy! This year I am really bothered with it even with taking extra strength reactine. The pollen count says moderate but it feels high to me. Maybe the windy days that we have been having is making it worse. My daughter is also having trouble this year. My son might even be grass allergic. My daughter saw his runny nose and she said,"K has allergies!" I think she was excited that he was now really a part of our allergic family.

Yes, I'm starting to think our daughter has hayfever as well as her food allergies!
I'm hoping that it's just a summer cold but...it's all allergy symptoms :roll:

My hayfever is most definitely severe this year, but I couldn't tell you if its worse than previous years. Every summer it feels worse, but I think that's only because current symptoms seem worse than remembering symptoms in the past.

But I'm in the U.K., could be that pollen levels are different here.

Most definitely. My eyes are pouring every morning and I'm very stuffed up. My poor son is worse than I am. I've never seen him this bad.

I'm really looking forward to ragweed season!! :)

My youngest started with the itchy eyes a few years ago. Each year seems to be worse. This year he has literally scratched the skin off his eyelids a few times.

I don't want to over-medicate, but it's hard to give enough without to much.

He was tested last year and came back negative to environmentals that he was tested for.

My son was also have a lot of problems, and frankly, we do medicate a lot (but not before consulting our allergist). He has been on Reactine (double the dose - allergist say okay), Nasonex nasal spray, plus his asthma meds - Singulair and Flovent. Once we added in the Reactine and Nasonex, he seemed to feel much better.

We also have eye drops (Patanol) but he doesn't need them that much - and kind of resists them. But he does have itchy eyes once in awhile as well.

We are now laying off the Reactine unless he seems to need it, but he still seems to have a runny nose quite often.

OOooh Yah!
My daughter is having a really hard time. We started her on Singular this year which seemed to make the world of difference. She was sleeping and everything. But that only lasted for a week. No we're also giving her Reactine, which doesn't seem to being a great job either. Feel sorry for her since it's reallly effecting her sleep too. We just bought an air purifier for her room and it seems to be working a bit better.

This is the first year we've known about her grass allergies but the light bulb sure went on once we found out. Makes a bunch of stuff make more sense now.
