I Ditched Allergy Meds For A Sinus Wash, And Here's What Happened

Prevention Premium: From Sex To Snacking, The Absolute Best Time Of Day To Do Everything

In the past, I'd tried just about everything to ease my discomfort: Benadryl, Zyrtec, Claritin, nasal sprays, humidifiers, face steaming, allergy shots. Some of it helped, but at a cost. The medications made me sleepy or jittery, and allergy shots were a literal pain (not to mention a pain to keep up with, since I needed to return to the doctor's office frequently).

I wondered if there was a better way, and I'd been hearing more and more about the wonders of sinus rinsing . In particular, I was intrigued by one study that found allergy patients who used nasal irrigation instead of medication had fewer symptoms and an overall better quality of life . (Here are 4 reasons your allergies are getting worse .)

I'd used neti pots and washes before, but always sporadically and usually only when ragweed and other pollen had already ravaged my sinuses. So this year, I decided to try a little experiment. Instead of popping pills, I would use a sinus wash several times a week—maybe even every day if I was feeling ambitious—and try to combat my allergies and related sinus problems simply by flushing the irritants away.

Question About AntiHistamine Side Effects of Diarrhea/Abdominal Pain (Claritin & Zyrtec)?

I have a chronic hives condition (called Cholinergic Urticaria).

I have taken Zyrtec before, and it provides a little relief from the itching and hives. However, I have recently noticed that it is causing me stomach pain and diarrhea.


Different antihistamines can give different side effects. Your best bet is to simply try it yourself to see if it causes you stomach pain.


Good luck.

Which is better for food allergies and eczema? Benadryl or Claritin?

I need to keep a box just in case I get an minor allergy to food (hives), or if I get an eczema episode because of external triggers (soaps, weather, etc.).

Of course I have creams for eczema, but my doctor suggested I use an anti-histamine


It sounds like you do not take antihistamine on a regular basis but only when you experience symptoms. In this case I would recommend Benadryl as it is a recommended drug for this. Personally, I carry the children's chewables with me just in case I


Benadryl is good to stop allergic reactions and has a long track record of safety.However it does cause drowsiness and can build up in the liver over time.Clariton is better for seasonal allergies.But avoidance is the best treatment for all allergies
