Pollen allergies still happening

Hi

Is anyone still battling with pollen symptoms? I'm still coughing a lot of mucus up which happens for me with pollen, it's never been this late on though. Now wondering if there's something else in the air/diet I'm allergic to.

Hi, it's my daughters worst time of year. Apparently the leaf mould from the rotting fallen leaves can be a trigger. Antihistamines can help.

I tried a facial steamer this morning to try & break up the mucus a bit, its helped a little but wish there was something I could be prescribed, it's really tiring coughing a lot. I feel as if I've had a chest infection all year. Going to the allergy hospital in jan so fingers crossed.

Hi all,

It's a particularly bad time for leaf mould in Autumn and fungal spores especially in damp wet weather. There's some information here that might help: bit.ly/2yHkJT4

Take care,

Hi Dita,

When I had allergy tests at the hospital they found I wasn't allergic to mould spores, but there is definitely something in the air which is still setting my lungs into allergy alert, just wish I knew what & could be treated with something for it. I start with theses symptoms as soon as the leaves come into bud, then get a rest for 3 wks ish from the leaves coming out to grass pollen time through to the autumn. have you a magic wand dita :)

Thank you for the link Dita, maybe the consultant only tested for one type of mould?

Have you tried fexofenadine? It's a prescription only antihistamine that (for me) is much more effective than the over the counter stuff. I have bad allergic asthma and hay fever from April-October and since I've been on fexofenadine it's been a lot better. You might benefit from a steroid nasal spray too, if you're not on one already.
