    Default nus / allergy iss

    Hi ladies and gentlemen. Found out today my sinus issues are back, and allergies are a likely culprit. That said, I don't like the thought of completely giving up my fragrances.

    Will likely get meds for allergies and hopefully, this will help. That said, is there anyone here who deals with allergies and still uses their perfumes / colognes? How and where do you apply? Obviously, not near the face. Thank you!

    At the times of the year when I have to deal with allergies, I stop by my local Costco pharmacy and purchase a box of Claritin-D. Make sure the D is on there. Purchase the one with 30 tablets as it is the most cost-effective.
    After a few days there will be no more issues. This will not work if you have a sinus infection.

    I would highly recommend it for your issue!

    In California, you need to fill out a form and show your driver's license in order to purchase it.

    Until you feel better, spray your lower chest (solar plexus) with one or two sprays.

    Sorry to hear of your problems. I hope medication solves. I have standard hay fever type of allergies and otc medication are perfect.

    As for perfume, first of all you need not be allergic to that. Second, regarding where to apply, you can apply to any part of the body. Behind the knee is a good place, for instance. Inner elbows even better-but they may be too close to the face. You can also apply to fabric, which projects less, like a handkerchief in the suit pocket or just scented paperstrips in pockets.

    Results should be better after that.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    VMaster is totally right. The Claritin should do the trick.
    You might find that the top notes at the opening can "getcha," but it becomes easier in the drydown.

    Some years ago a doctor gave me his diagnosis that I am allergic to cats, perfume and dust. I told him I would be quite willing to give up dust.

    Good luck!
