So has any one else been told they need to wear a surgical mask when they go outside and shower immediately when they enter their house. My allergies and astham are so bad that I have reactions even though I take 3 allergy pills, 3 asthma pills, use 2 different nebulizer treatment several times per day and inhalers. Plus started getting the steriod injections again. (got tired of taking pills every month for that too). I was told to do this a long time ago but was resistent. So I went online and ordered flowered masks so at least dont look so bad.
 
Still not sure at this time if it will reduce anything. But hoping because I'm so tired of being sick all the time and being afraid smhair

Welcome to the forum, poetic.

Sorry you have such bad allergies.

Have you asked about allergy shots? Even if you can't get shots for everything, maybe you could get at least a few of the worst ones. I don't have anything like what you are living with, but my weekly shots keep me from having any reactions at all.

Let us know if the masks help. The information you share could help someone else.

Ya tried the shots. They almost killed me and made
Them worse. I just found special face masks I'm going
To order one today. They have them in many styles and
Colors too. Hoping it will work so I can be outside and run again.
I will definitely post if they work

How did the shots "nearly kill" you? Did you have an allergic reaction?

When I started on the shots I had reactions. My allergist had the dose dropped 1/100 (I think) and started raising my dose VERY slowly, a month at a time. I still don't take a normal dose, but they work for me just fine.

I was building up and reported symptoms
They would not listen n just gave me steroids
Eventually I went into anaphylaxis 3 days in a row
Rushed to the hospital and my symptoms have gotten more severe
Since then. I'm hyper sensitive to almost everything.
I never even got through one vial.

I just got the steroid shots this week and still had a severe
Asthma/ allergy attack and scared the fictir in the hospital. So now I'm also on oral steroids for the next few days. I'm an fighting off another attack right now as I am typing hoping to avoid the er

I can't understand why your doctor would have you continue with your allergy shots at the same level after even one reaction. I was dropped down after a simple redness.

I would see a different allergist. I went to three before finding one I trusted.
