    Just curious if anyone on here has allergies....Did you develop them after staring to mow? Masks, shots, or any other solutions to these things....

    Yeah I have really bad allergies. But, Pills man, those help a ton. I take Allegra. Masks would probably work.

    That's what I did for a long time, eventually got used to it.
    Motrin was it for me, I am sure I went through at least one of those 200mg x 100 pill bottles.
    In my case it wasn't the allergies, but the PAIN.

    I've had them since I was a little kid,go figure that when I started in this business as a teenager I started to get immune to the allergies. I still get little problems here and there. But I use allegra and claritin and when its really bad benadryl.

    Claritin D for me when the dandelions are growing!!!!!! I wish my customers would pay for weed control, would keep the dandelions from tearing me up......

    gottem here too. I usually use a benidril in the morning and an alkaseltzer for cold (lemon flavor) and a bc for artritis at night, works good for me

    Usually bothers me in spring and september when ragweed is present.

    I will take Zyrtec and use flonase as needed. If it gets worse I will add benadryl. Gets any worse I will take all 3 on a daily bases till I dont need it. If it gets worse add a mask.
