I haven't been diagnosed, but I have a really good idea that I'm allergic to cottonwood trees. (in the spring, early summer, when they pollinate). Never had symptoms until about three years ago while living on the river next to three huge cottonwoods in the back yard. We have since moved, but still live in a heavily treed area and have noticed that once I see the little bits of cotton floating, my eyes begin to itch so badly, I could claw my eyeballs out! I also have a little itchiness in my throat that radiates up to the back of my ear canal. I am hoping perhaps there is good remedy that doesn't involve taking anything prescription or if it's OTC, that won't make me drowsy... Any advice?
