Spring time allergies are not something that I suffer from like so many others do. My middle child had one year where he suffered from hay fever in a bad way.
About six years ago in the middle of the summer Quinlan got sick. He had itchy eyes, he was sneezing, he had a headache that we couldn’t get rid of, and after a day outside his temperature spiked. When his fever got to 104 and I couldn’t get it down I called the nurse’s hotline. She stayed on the phone with me for about twenty minutes until we got the fever to come down. The next morning I took him to the doctor and she informed us it was hay fever. She prescribed allergy medicine and even with that he had symptoms off and on through the rest of the summer. The next summer it was not as bad. It took about three summers before they took him off allergy meds and he hasn’t had a summer as bad since then. It’s more bearable for him now. Those summers where his hay fever was bad he got to the point where he didn’t want to go outside.
So while my family doesn’t have to deal with spring time allergies we do have to deal with hay fever in the summer.
If you suffer from allergies when does it rear it’s ugly head for you?
