Have you tried the nasal sprays yet?

I've been sneezing my head off too. We have a large quantity of ragweed in the area and it's making me sneeze and eyes water like crazy! I'm on Zyrtec and Singulair and it's barely controlling it. So you're not alone!

Awe, hope your feeling better soon, can you where an air mask?
Maybe one of those whole house air filters... maybe replace your house air filter.
Try some lemon zinger tea or peppermint tea, or tea of your choice. Honey from local
place might help. if you get worse make sure to call your doctor...
Prayers that your doing better soon.

Went to the doctor and got a stronger inhaler and steroids.

I have a room air filter, but it's time to clean it up again.
