The worst part is people acting like I have the plague when I start sneezing or blowing my nose. No I don't have a cold, if you haven't noticed the pollen count is off the charts this year.

My allergies were actually worse last year. This year I've stayed indoors on days with high pollen counts or I've been medicated.

Yes, as indicated by the 80% who said YES! I had been taking Zyrtec or it's generic equivalent, for about three years, but have noticed it's effectiveness has been dwindling. I started taking Claratin D, or again the generic equivalent, and have seen a very improved resistance to the pollen. But, I still have problems when it's extremely high...like today! There is no panacea!

Making hot tea with lemon balm is a natural way to ease hayfever and spring allergies! :)

It's fracken awful in NE Arkansas. My eyes are swollen and weeping and my sinuses are running 24-7. This is the worst year I can remember in the last decade.
