I have tested positive to most of the outdoor allergens in my area. My grass allergy was the worst.

Symptoms include your usual runny nose and itchy eyes, but I also break out in a rash if I sit in grass bare skinned. I do get asthma from pollen, with an annoying tight chest that makes it hard to exert myself. I also sometimes get itchy welts on my face and neck from airborne pollen, even full-blown eczema.

To minimize the symptoms, I keep the windows closed and run the air conditioner. I change my sheets often, and shower before bed. Dirty clothes never go in the bedroom, to keep the pollen out of there, and I run a HEPA filter next to the bed.

Taking antihistamines is also a great treatment for itching. If your thyroid medicine limits your antihistamine choices, try Singular. My grandmother swears by it.
