Haven't posted in a while so I figured I'd give it a go. With all the recent rains, it seems the pollen in the air is kicking up pretty bad. Aside from the usual remedies, like say Claritin D, anti-histamines, what's everyone doing to deal with allergies? Sucks when me and the wife gotta stop to deal with them, any suggestions? I was going to post in the health section, but I was hoping some local SoCal riders could chime in. Thanks!
As seen on Shark Tank:
If you can stand it, hospital or dusk masks are effective and cheap. Or use a hankerchief/bandana as a filter. May look odd, but it helps. Not much u can do about pollen/spores if the Santa Ana winds r blowing.

If it's really bad, see a doctor. I take over-the-counter Allegra, plus 3 prescriptions - 1 pill and two nasal inhalers. I've been taking all that stuff for 7 years - and don't know how I ever lived without them.

Might be a wives tale, but I heard long ago that if you can get honey from a local apiarist/honey producer, it is an effective, long-term antidote for allergies. I've never had allergies, but then I've also always enjoyed honey. Some wives tales have a grain of truth to them.
