Allergy relief

Postby KU40 » Fri Jun 13, 2008 3:07 pm

This year I decided to get allergies I guess. The last couple months I've had a runny nose/sneezing fairly bad and have managed to control that with OTC meds (grocery store brand antihistamines). The problem is my eyes. The drugs don't do much for my dry, itchy eyes. It becomes hell when I put in my contacts because they just get blurry and uncomfortable. Does anybody have anything that works good for eyes? I haven't tried eyedrops, but I've never used them before.

My parents used to microwave the eyedrops so they would warm up and not be as irritating to put in.

I'm afraid after two months that's all I have to offer.

I would try eyedrops. Specifically Naphcon-A Allergy Eye Drops. They are on the spendy side IIRC. 5-8 bucks but they work great. I have year round allergies and those seem to work for me when needed.

Hope that helps.

Fuck Allergies!

Oh yeah and I don't know about the microwave, but I do the opposite and keep my drops in the fridge.

aye, allergies... I also had my worst/first allergy case a month ago, felt like I was sick almost minus the whole cough/body aches, it lasted till I got some claritin D's, even those are weak though...

not sure about eye problems though, I don't found the best solution is to get in the habit of avoiding ever touching your eyes like me.

I think that's half my problem. I need to stop doing it.

I usually just mess with mine when there is junk in them, like the morning crusties. Then whenever my eyes get dry or itchy throughout the day I think something is in them and sometimes try rubbing it out. but far too often there's nothing in there and it just worsens the problem.
