Hay Fever Cure

Post by Bid » 23 Mar 2008, 22:39

My OH has chronic hay fever. It starts in May and lasts until the end of September. He has the genuine fever - temperature, hot sweats, shaking etc as well as the sniffy nose so it's a real misery. Usually he drugs himself up, and has to vary the drugs as he gets resistant to them really quickly. This year though he has a new thing - it seems to involve sticking 2 little red torches up his nose for 5 minutes 3 times a day. I've no idea if it will work, but it sure as hell is giving me a laugh :lol: I've tried taking a photo but he isn't keen :roll: He says I'm not being sympathetic :shock:

What is it Bid? Martin really suffers with it too, and apart from the amusement this cure would give me, he'll try anything! :lol:

I'm intrigued :shock:
Does his nose glow red? :lol:
Should he be renamed Rudolf?
Can you see the innards of his head through his ears when he's doing it?
Do his eyes bulgein a drunken manner?
Hope it works, he certainly deserves for it to :lol:

Hi, my OH suffers from hay fever, many years ago he came back from the doctors with a contraption that had a rubber ball on a tube, he placed a capsule in the tube inserted it into a nostril and squeezed the ball, it was call an insnufflelater, i am sorry to say I also laughed when he used it as I found the name funny. Someone advised him to have local honey made from the pollen in his area which he has done for many years now, he has it in his tea rather than sugar, Maybe it is mind over matter but he hasnt suffered from hay fever half as much as he did and he was very bad when an attack hit.

I've heard something about these torches. Do they work for general allergic rhinitis as well as Hayfever, I wonder? I get permanent sneezing and nose problems all the year round. It's both unpleasant and unattractive. :roll: I have a red nose constantly. With me it's from when I get up 'til lunch time. I'm nearly always ok in the afternoon, though. Odd. :?
Would try anything though. It's only a 15 minute walk to school, but the kids get really frustrated as I have to stop maybe 5 times, take my gloves off and blow my nose. Not to mention the spluttery sneezing. I've always had it though, so I don't really know any different. :lol:
Let us know if it works, Bid. :D

hel&Mark,
I've got the same thing, although mine seems to be worse on other days. It is really unatractive, and my nose always looks like rudolph due to al the blowing! I always thought it was an allergic reaction, but anti histemenes (sp?) don't seem to do anything. Doctors are rubbish and tell me just to take the inefective anti thingys!!
will be waching this thread with interest!!

Yes,
He has been
Think his head is actually empty
This is normal!


This is it - http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASI ... ROKL5A1OLE

He got it on the recommendation of one of his clients who says it works for her - after initially using it 3 times a day, she now only uses it on the odd day when she feels an attack coming on. Pete has stopped using the antihistamines after 1 week of using it, but he is at his worst later in the year (just pine pollen at the moment I think) so we're not claiming a cure yet.

Good thinking, Dustysmum. But no - it's not that. :lol:
I had 40 allergy test injections once, and was allergic to 38 of them so I think I am probably even allergic to myself. :roll:
Might well try these little torches though. Nasal sprays just increase the ferocity of my nosebleeds. :x
I do think that eventually I shall just have to have my nose designated as a danger area and sealed off ...
