Evil allergies?

Allergies got you feeling like someone punched you in the face this past week? Last week allergies came on strong for all those that suffer from allergies to tree pollen. I, like all these folks, was severely limited in how we could breath. My nostrils where completely clogged, yet my nose would still drip like a faucet. Go figure. I literally had to wipe my nose every few minutes. And that's not the exaggerated use of the word literally. Every few minutes, meaning every 2 to 3 minutes, I was wiping my nose. My nose was raw. I tried a couple of over the counter meds. My nostrils still clogged. I even took med that's stated that it was a decongestion. Still mouth breathing and dripping. THEN, I tried this.

Zicam! I was very doubtful. I've used many allergy meds and they worked 70% at best. This actually worked like a charm. I'm not one to rush to put anything up my nose, but I was desperate. A couple of squirts of this in the nose and I was clear. YAH!! Clear! It actually did last 12 hrs. At hour 10 you might start seeing the symptoms start up, but it's not heavy. I coupled Zicam with Benadryl allergy and I was pretty much symptom free. Pretty awesome for someone who was barely functioning from what I can only describe felt like a bruised face just a day ago. I highly recommend Zicam to my fellow allergy sufferers. If you have clogged nostrils, give it a try.

If you're not used to nasal sprays, it may take some getting used to. You may feel some irritation at first, but it fades in 10 or 15 minutes. Then you're clear for about 10 hours. I say it's worth it for some slight irritation.
