View Full Version : Could this still be hayfever?
Help me settle a good natured argument with my DH.
I've been sneezing and snuffling for a good month or two and I reckon it's hayfever. He says not because HE doesn't have it :rolleyes:
I think that two people can be allergic to different pollens, and it COULD be hayfever.
So what do you think?
PS stupidly reluctant to take Clarityn just in case.... :rolleyes:
I normally have hayfever, but have been pretty symptom free this year. That is until this week. I think some new kind of pollen has been released that I am highly allergic too.
People are allergic to different pollens, I am more susceptible to trees than grass.
I'm sure that you could be allergic to different pollens which are more *in season* at differing times in the summer. When I lived in the US, they used to have the pollen count (like we do sometimes) at the end of the news, but they used to do it for about 10 different sorts of pollen!!
ps - you ARE allowed to take piriton. :wink:
Sounds like hayfever if its been going on for a couple of months, I'd take the tablets and see if it clears up - then you'll know for sure :smile:
BTW, I've still got hayfever, going on for aggeeesss this summer :sigh:
The hayfever "season" can last from as early as March and as late as October and over that period there are peaks of different pollens which is why some people are worse at different times than others.
My DH gets really bad around late May and June where as it's the rapeseed that really gets me.
It is ok to take piriton if you need it, otherwise the topical stuff - eye drops and steroid nasal sprays are safe too :wink:
I have been sneezing etc for months now - and its affecting my eyes too and I am having to wear my stupid glasses cos it hurts to have my contacts in. Seeing optician in morning to see whats going on.............
My mum has hayfever - but she has it at completely different times to me - as does my best mate.
