Things have only gone from bad to worse over the last week. Yesterday I went for a drive in the country and my arms, bare in the sunshine, flared up with a spreading rash. And I started sneezing and weeping from my left eye. I had really tried for several days to keep away from problem substances although I did have small glass of Scotch on Friday night.
I wanted to top up my montelukast with an anti-histamine overnight but found I had run out.
It's interesting the way I was so tolerant over the Christmas period - apparently because of cold and flu viruses - and yet at this time of year I'm finding it all difficult.
I've noted in the past that even if there is no pollen allergy, there may be a problem with a kind of pseudo-hay fever caused by hedge trimmings, grass mowings etc getting into circulation - that is to say it's not the pollen but the vegetable matter itself that's a problem.
