    I used to get Hay Fever in the Spring/Summer, but for the past Month or so both myself and my daughter (Also prone) have suffered all the symptoms, sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose (Ugh!) etc.
    Is anyone else suffering or could it be a new "In House" allergy ?
    Come on you Doctors and Medical Students !

    Unfortunately this is something ive suffered from for a number of years.

    i think it's called seasnal rhinitus(sp?)

    basicaly its like haveing hayfever 365 days of the year.
    I had an op a few years back to clean all my sinuses out, but it only lasted for 5 or six years, i'm now back to square one gain.

    im not saying that you have this, it could be a haous allergy. have you had any new pets recently or anything like that?

    It sounds a bit like this Rhinitis (?) thing.
    We've had a dog for about 12 years with no noticeable effect, and nobody in the family smokes.
    It does mainly occur when I'm at home though.
    Could be the wifes perfume or a different detergent or air freshner I suppose (I've always been sneezy around the detergent shelves in the Supermarket )
    Someone I know said that research pointed to traffic exhaust fumes as a possible cause of this and asthma in children.
    But, as you know, it's ****** irritating, and downright dangerous when sneezing whilst driving.
    I bet I could produce some explosive sforzandos if it happened at Band !!!

    Suffered with it ever since I can remember. Only solution is antihistamenes all year with eye drops. However, I have noticed that I have been worse over the last 4 weeks or so.
