Hi Donna.

I presume you see an allergist. Have you considered shots? I take them weekly year 'round and have no symptoms. Some people take them bi-weekly or monthly. Some take them weekly just before and during pollen season and monthly the rest of the year.

For sinus headaches I use a nasal wash. I sometimes also use Mucinex 12-hour, just the 600 mg dose.
