I had a bit yesterday,it`s not nice when you spray inside your visor when your not quick enough.My daughter uses a spoon ful of honey,i used to use anti/histomine called clarytin.As you know slow down when on a bike.
Hey up zak03
I have heared from a mate of mine who suffers badly with hay fever, He swears by local honey. Something to do with the pollen collected by the bees in your location seems to make a natural defence for it. He eats about a jar a week and his symptoms have lessened. Give it a try for a week and see if that helps. That is assuming you like honey.
I used to get an injection, think it was called Kenolog. I don't think they like giving it as it's a steroid. You have 8 weeks of no symptoms and 2 weeks with minimal symptoms. I got it a few years back and it was great. I now use Beconase nasal spray, and Tesco's own tablets (quarter of the price of the branded gear with the same ingredients). Found the Beconase to be very good, only use it in the morning and it seems to last all day.
thanks for info so far,not tried honey,beco im on at moment ,kenelog i had that from army medic but said not to take regually as i may devolop a pair of tits so cant do that.hmmmmmm although might come in handy when alone.not tried clarytin give it a go cheers all
try everything and eventually you'll find something.
There's loads of different types of hayfever so one persons cure will do nothing for someone else. The only way is to try them all until you find the one that works. When I say try them all I mean the drug not the brand, Claratyn I believe is just Loratadine with a funky name and twice the price. Thats the drug for me after trying the inhalers, sprays, herbals ...
I must say the biggest factor in my relief was moving to the coast.
If there`s a Lidl near you try there hayfever tablets.Clarytin could be spelt Clarityn.
tescos own make allergy relief tablets, ask fur the non drowsy tho,they come in boxes o 30 fur aboot £2 or £3,works fur me " /> AAAAAcchhoooo,
takes Cetrizine for his hayfever...think its same as Zirtek or Tesco's own brand...look on t'net for prices, I recently got some at 10p per pack, and it was the same brand/box/make as on Docs.prescription !!!!
ive snotted me visor a few times but now im like lightning jack to raise visor as i ride open face helmet and my allergy is grass i do suffer mostly when i get back to base eyes itch like mad but tis a small price to pay for the freedom and enjoyment,oh and just to say the adjustment you did on clutch has done the job no more clutch slip when tanking it,hope you are mending o.k
I only get it on really bad days so normal asda's own works with me. Have you tried stuffing fag filters up your nose? (New one's obviously " />) But more seriously, my friend has a face mask that he wears for allergies, isn't prevention better than a cure? They're called anti pollen masks or allergy masks, them sorts of names.
If you're on beclometasone, switch to the other one that begins with an "f" and I can't remember the name.
As for antihistamines, don't bother with that over priced crap. You may get better relief from prescription stuff - £8 for a months supply.
My choice given a nasal spray on its own isn't working properly would be between desloratadine and fexofenadine 180mg (they do a 120mg which is good for the sniffles, not for full blown swollen eye "I HATE SUMMER" malarkey).
EDIT: oh and check the dose on your nasal spray. I thought most of them were twice daily.
I sell a lot of honey to people who think it helps them. I don't understand how it can work, but I certainly don't turn them away! They keep coming back, so maybe it's worth a try.
Make sure you get local honey though. The theory seems to be immunity to your local pollen dust, so it's no good going to Tesco for it. Try the British Beekepers website if you don't see a sign out locally.
I know I ride like a girl. So try and keep up.
a drug from the doctors called Fexofenadine. Its the stongest stuff available and it works a treat. Zero Symptoms!!!!
