Tree Pollen

Pet Dander (which he frequently rubbed in his eyes, due to the aforementioned tree-pollen induced itching...)

Poor little man, he was SO miserable by bedtime last night! But a good night's sleep in his cat/dog free room, some anti-histamines, and a rain last night have put him on the mend...as you can see he's my little marshmallow when he bumps into something he's allergic to. (And yes, we've seen an allergist and have an epi-pen, just in case...)

oh my! That is just plain miserable! No fun at all! Do you know about local honey? The theory is that since local honey is made with some of the tree pollen in the area, it should help with alleges...maybe worth a further look and a try...poor kid

The poor guy! Great pictures though! The honey advice really works. I've been doing it for over a year now and it's made a BIG difference in my allergies ad my dad's. The honey needs to be made within 15-20 miles of where you live.

Man, maybe we shouldn't have our lifegroup at our place. No sense in Joshua fighting to breath and being miserable with red, swollen, itchy eyes. We'll talk more tomorrow depending on if Elsen's are coming. Hope Joshua is having a allergy free day today!

Oh no! Poor Joshua! Hope had a HORRIBLE attack last week (tree pollen)- ended up zonking her out on Benadryl for 5 days to get it under control- then back to Allegra. Do you bathe/shower Joshua to rinse his hair off before naps and bed- that has made the biggest difference with Hope- getting the pollen out of her hair so she doesn't sleep in it.

Oh poor dear! My brother had a number of those reactions growing up (gotta love the epi-pens).
