@phendrick cinnamon. The smell of it, if strong, gives me instant migraines. (which is a shame because I do think it’s a pleasant smell).
Also, if I have too much cinnamon, a little is OK, I get these blisters forming inside my mouth (artificial cinnamon, like in gum and candy is even worse; I did read up on this once and there is an oil in cinnamon which is also used in fake cinnamon that causes this)
My allergies got much better when I moved. Air conditioning helps a ton. I don’t know what combination of temperature, filtering, and dehumidifying does the job, but as long as I stay in air conditioning, and don’t have a bunch of scented garbage in the house, I’m basically fine.
I would normally be miserable for a week or two and then be ok but this year I was terrible for about a month. I finally had to give in and get Flonase. It probably wouldn’t have looked too good having a mask on sneezing, sniffling and coughing.
I’m allergic to everything and have asthma, so I was on a ton of meds. For years, my Dr had suggested that I see an allergist. I finally did a year and a half ago and started getting allergy shots and it CHANGED MY LIFE. It’s a crazy thing, you have to go 50 times, then keep going once a month after that. But it was 100% worth the 100 shots.
