Pollen Count and Contact Lenses

My eyes are itching horribly today. I managed to accidentally rub out one of my contact lenses.

It's the fungal spores again. 

Runny nose, itchy eyes, asthma....  Bleargh.

Thank heaven for anti-histamines.  I've taken one and hopefully the effects will kick in soon.

One of the reasons that I won't go for contacts is that I'm one of those people who gets sneezing fits just because the sun's out, and my eyes run like mad!

I do hope the antihistamine has kicked in now, and that you feel better x

I gave up on contacts many years ago; working in an air conditioned office dried out my eyes too much, and it wasn't worth the irritation.

I hope your eyes are better. Oh yes, a season of wet weather is here, too bad for your problems ( and for my minuite ones too).

I've felt I was getting a sort of hayfever back this week but maybe it's a fungal spore allergy too. Really itchy eyes and face today.

Check out the Zirtek site (that's the one I linked to) for a few days and see if there's a correlation.

Miserable :-(
