So when someone eats local honey - something I've been told is a cure-all for seasonal allergies - does it work instantaneously (as in, eating it now would help with spring allergies already in progress) or does it build cumulatively before it works and a resistance kicks in?
 
And if so, how long?

Did anyone give you any sort of aromatherapy thing—like a candle or those bottles of oil with sticks coming out the top (for Christmas)? It took my mother and I a long time to realize that's what was affecting us. They were the ones from Target.

 
No, I don't have any of those anymore because they make me sneeze.  I think Sally makes me sneeze because she has been more affectionate lately I suppose because of the cold weather.  Oh well, I guess I'll learn to live with it.

Is it sniffles/sneezing or asthma?

 
I have deducted that whatever was giving me chronic asthma is NOT in Ohio. Since I've been here, I haven't had to use my inhaler and my lungs are clear for the first time in weeks. Makes me wonder if maybe I'm allergic to one of the Oregon fir or cedar trees. (Except it's only bad in fall/winter)

Everyday is allergy season for me because of all my food allergies. But there is something outside now that's making it really bad during my daily walks. For me instead of itchy eyes and runny nose I just get tons of post nasal drip mucus so I can't sleep or even use a Cpap. It sucks.

 
I get that in the spring. It gets so bad that some mornings I vomit up clear, foamy mucus that I've swallowed in my sleep, I even stopped drinking beer during the first couple weeks of baseball season in an attempt to eliminate all possible contributing factors, but thankfully that wasn't the cause.

European nettle extract, available in capsule form from your friendly neighborhood supplement source. Allergies alleviated in a half hour. Bing! Done.

I can't take Zyrtec either. Loratidine is barely noticeable in effect, side effect, anything. I haven't been bad this spring tho, so hey.

Oh, yes. forgot to mention that. Zyrtec comes into play only when the saline rinse fails.

Similar problem for me, and Zyrtec is about the only antihistamine I can take. The non drowsy Sudafed Actifed, etc., keep me awake at night. Benedryl lets me sleep, but causes other problems - ask HJ in about 10 years. Zyrtec is intended to be taken one pill a day, so I take it just before bed so it helps me get to sleep and guarantees a clear nose and throat through the night.
