Allergies- Yep, I have them!

As a kid, I don’t remember having allergies. I know my mom had them but not me. A couple of years ago I went to the doctor having back-to-back ear infections. After talking to the doctor, he suggested trying some over the counter allergy medicine as well as my antibiotic. I said allergy meds?… he said yep. He informed me that I likely have some allergies. I explained that I didn’t have have allergies… then he started listing some symptoms and I found yes, I do have allergies. Thankfully I don’t have serious allergies… some itching, sore throat, sneezing and the like, but nothing that prevents me from being outside or active. I have found that taking one 24-hour allergy pill really helps me stave off most of my problems. I do however get into a little trouble when we spent days at the house in town working on the remodeling project, mowing the lawn or gardening. sat-house-jo The dust gets to me when we are working at the house. I end up with a scratchy throat and my nose is just a mess. I know I should be wearing a mask and many of you will leave a comment here telling me to, but I’ve tried and it just doesn’t work for me. My glasses fog up and I get a little claustrophobic. Honest… I’ve tried. So instead, I suffer with the allergy symptoms. Recently HALLS® contacted me wanting to know if I wanted to try their cough drops for allergies. Now that surprised me. I had never thought of that. After thinking about it, cough drops for allergies makes a lot sense. I could get relief for my throat and breathe just a little easier just like I do in the winter when I have a cold. So I tried two varieties and like the lemon the best. Cough Drops My throat felt better and my nose cleared a bit too. I can see that I’ll be using them for just an extra boost once I overdo it with the house remodeling projects. Some of the upcoming things we have to do at the house is remove more plaster, remove the back 1/3 of the house, sanding floors, and sheet rocking. All of it includes some type of dust. All of that, coupled with the regular spring allergens make me sure I’ll be keeping some HALLS on hand for me. My next plan is get Hubby to try them. He too has found, now that he is older, that he has allergies. Some things on the farm really get to him now. Bedding the cattle, working in the silo, being around corn and oats dust, are some of the worst things for him. I am guessing he’ll like HALLS too. Who knew that HALLS helps allergies too?

    Wow – thanks for sharing that Jo! I developed allergies to dust and the like a few years ago, and I take a 24-hour med too, but sometimes – especially around this time of year – it’s not enough and I tend to have a sore throat often. I’ll definitely give these a try :)

    Have you tried just using a regular fabric bandanna, like an old-fashioned bank robber? It would keep the worst of the dust out of your nose and mouth and possibly wouldn’t fog up your glasses or make you feel too claustrophobic since it’s just fabric.
