Anybody else suffering?
Here in the deep south the pollen is coating everything!! My white truck looks yellow! Its so gross. And my allergies are in full force right now. I'm taking zyrtec, and maybe its helping?! And I know Afrin is a no-no (not for baby, just in general), but its totally my BFF right now. Only way I can breath!!!
Yep! Pollen count was close to 10,000 yesterday in Atlanta (anything over 120 is considered very high, if I'm not mistaken). I've had a low grade headache for three days, but my older DD is miserable. We had a nice storm last night, so I'm hoping we'll have a little relief. We've been staying inside as much as possible.
You know I'm not far from you in GA, just a little south, and YES, the pollen is ridiculous. I can't go outside without sneezing and itching like crazy. I feel like I need a shower if I even walk outside for a second. I've been having a sinus headache for days. Ugh...

Allergies are worse and earlier this year because tress never stopped producing pollen in the Winter. I was told by my doctor that I'm allowed to take Benedryl, but it knocks me out so I'm too afraid of what it'll do to the baby. Right now, I just suffer.
I am allergic to shedding horses, well you know what horses are doing by the handfuls right now! LOL........ Needless to say I have been suffering the past couple weeks. I got a TON of hair off my stud yesterday and I am sure I will get just as much this evening. I just suffer through it but my dr told me benedryl is fine to take.
VA is pretty bad to, but must admit when I lived in GA it was heck a bad! Pollen counts are going to be at the highest ever this year since winter was a bust and everything bloomed earlier. Anyhow Zertec 10mg, cool mist humidifier, and benedryl.
I'm dying over here! I take Claritin D because I need the decongestant. I normally take precription strength Allegra D but it's not approved so this will have to do. It helps with the sneezing and congestion but the headaches are the worst. I have a bad one today and nothing is helping. It's raining right now and I hope once it stops I'll have some relief. I have to go to a 2 year old bday party today
Location: Just moved to Pineville, LA from Fort Polk, LA
in LA sneezing daily...... I take benedryl to sleep about 2 times a week, but nothing for allergies, I already have to take wellbuterin for bipolar, trying to stay away from taking to much meds or mixing them right now so i just choose to tough it out along with the ocassional headache
