I suffer terribly with Hayfever. I have tried every single over the counter tablet. I have tried all the nasal sprays (even the prescription ones such as dymister) I have tried Every eye drop available and I'm still struggling so bad! I've had the injection as well which does not help. Next step is all the injection to get "de-sensitised" but that's a hell of alot of money and I've heard mixed reviews. Is there anything out there that maybe I've missed to try??? Please help me it's terrible :(
Have an answer?
Normal saline wash out
Nasal spray - try Azep, it's fast acting and no cortisone, twice a day
I can't stress the DAILY enough.
Good luck. hope it helps
I had terrible hayfever from age 14, so bad my nose and even throat would flood, and I would end up feeling like I was drowning, start vomiting and doctor had to be called out to give me an injection to dry it up. (Couldnt swallow a tablet and keep it down in that state.)
Then I would sleep for 2 days, because I was so exhausted from fighting to breathe.
200 massive sneezes a day was usual for me. Every day.
I got tested for allergies, and did not show up as allergic to anything. (35 scratches on each arm, and nothing reacted).
Eventually diagnosed as "chronic allergic Rhinitis".
Although it was particularly bad in hayfever season, I would have a sneezing fit and my nose would also flood when I went from a warm room to a cold room.
I lived on pseudoephidrine based tablets to dry it up, which of course you cant buy over the counter now because of illicit drug manufacturers robbing chemists to use them to make ice. But you can get them on prescription. And you cant use them all the time.
And I was using Otrivin nasal spray, a pack a week, which I was told can damage your heart.
I ended up going to an ENT specialist and getting an operation to remove cartilage from inside my nose, and that worked magically for 20 years. No sneezing at all.
He also fixed my deviated nasal septum.
The surgeon said that cartilage growth inside the nose is linked to allergies.
I suggest you go get a referral from your GP to an ENT specialist, and have the problem properly researched, and then fixed.
It was misery to live with.
Also heard bone broth can help.
No idea on either of the remedies but at least they are cheap and relatively simple
