Been feeling rubbish all day with worsening hayfever, eyes and nose itching and streaming like mad and both quite red now, sneezing, sore throat and headachy. My chest has been feeling a little bit tight/heavy most of the day so have been taking ventolin to ease it, but thought I was ok really breathing wise until I got home from work and looked in the mirror and saw that I was using accessory muscles and sucking in at neck/shoulders. Much better now with ventolin and been indoors for a while too.
I have cetirizine, beconase and eye drops for my hayfever (cetirizine and beconase prescribed for both hayfever and asthma prevention). I also have montelukast for my asthma which has improved my hayfever symptoms a little. Is there anything else I can add or do to help? I do things like use Vaseline in my nostrils, change clothes, wash hair, keep windows shut (which drives other half mad). I can't really avoid the outdoors though as that's where my job is, although I will avoid working in the evenings at this time of year.
Appologies for moaning, but feeling a bit sorry for myself.
