    Tell me what I can do to breath out my nose please!

    I have no health insurance right now.

    This is a bad time of year for me. Every year this time like through Oct. I have issues.

    The only thing I can think of is to rotor route my nostrils.

    I did gargle with hot salt water the other evening....the back of my throat/nose (hard to explain) itches so bad. Eyes are itchy and plugged up but sometimes runny nose. I also keep have sneezing episodes....like 10-20 in a row.

    Zyrtec works for me.

    My little bro had really bad allergies, and he had to get Zyrtec. I think it is 35-45 dollars for 50 pills. I may be wrong, but It is good stuff. Just pricey

    Yep its not cheap. I only take it when I really need to, but it does work. It won't make you sleepy either.

    I sneeze horribly and get the itchy tongue and throat, I take zyrtec but if that is not enough I also take Sudafed(the real stuff you have to show your ID for at the pharmacy). I only started to get allergies at the age of 34 when pregnant with #6. I know they supplement my daughter with singulair as well as the zyrtec for her allergies [​IMG] (guess to breathe easier?)

    I have been sick with allergies and hay fever for over a month.

    I take prescriptions boosted with a decongestant at night and antihistamine eye drops throughout the day. I would literally sit and sneeze for hours. I couldn't drive or even go anywhere really.
    I got one of those nasal rinse kits out of desperation. I just wanted a clear enough nose to sleep a few hours straight. It sure made a difference! I still have hay fever, but the sneezing has lessened and my sinuses are clear enough to get some rest. I guess it rinsed out the pollen and other allergens I was breathing in.

    Quote:I've never seen one of those before, when I wake up in the morning during the winter time, my mouth is dry and my nose is full of blah. I go to the bathroom for about 5 minutes, and try to pick, rinse out, and pull out. Nasty stuff to have to deal with. I like the vaporizers though. Steam is so soothing.

    I've used this on the kids and it really helps. You can buy a Nettie Pot at Walgreens, probably any pharmacy. Allergies are bad this year. It' may sound or seem gross, but it's actually very easy once you get the hang of it and it's very effective.

    Sudaphed makes a nasel spray and you are not supposed to use it more than 3 days but it does help for that time.
