    local bee pollen is supposed to work really good if you take it every day in increasing doses for a few months before allergy season. i havnt tried this since i dont usually get bad allergies. you can get a bag of bee pollen at healthfood stors

    Bee pollen? Isn't that the pollen collected by the bees? And isn't pollen an allergen? So that's sort of the hair of the horse that bit you..I guess?

    I have no idea, I'm just trying to think through this one.

    I hadn't heard about trying it that way - just with local honey.

    yea its the pollen bees collect. you use it to build tolerance to the stuff that effects you. that stuff is really healthy too. lots of vitamins. i think the homey thing might work because it has small amounts of pollen but im not sure. the bees collect many types of pollen but it needs to be local so you know your getting the pollen you will be exposed to.

    We have a beekeeper down the street and I have trade for raw honey off and on. It has helped reduce the severity of my hay fever attacks. I will have one or two bouts when I mow the lawn, but by and large it seems to help quite a bit.

    Default I wish there was a Benadryl tree

    I've suffered with "Hay fever" my whole life. Mostly spring, sometimes in the fall. I've noticed as I get older it actually seems less severe. Maybe there is an upside to age?

    I've been taking Fexofenadine (I think that's the generic for something) for the last 2 years. Only 1 pill in 24 hours so not too bad

    Age has had the opposite affect on me, dscrick. LOL! My allergies seem to get worse and I get MORE of them! Doesn't stop me though. I take one of those generic allergy pills once a day too. They work well.

    Here is a site with some information about folk remedies and allergens that might have useful information.
    http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/allergies.html

    Not exactly about allergens, but is about sinusitis and honey.
