My parents have cats (my trigger) and whilst living at home I had some tolerance to it I guess. But since moving out going home is a nightmare, for a few days before going I take my seretide 250, nasal spray, both drowsy and non drowsy antihistamines, i might as well have taken nothing. What can I do to avoid my christmas being ruined by allergies??? Does anybody know if a GP could give me something stronger to take just on days I am visiting home or do stronger things need to build up over time? I am new to the forum but its really nice to know people are out there and any advice would be appreciated!
