Allergies are relatively new for me. I didn’t have them growing up in the South when pollen counts were insane, and I didn’t really have them for many years after moving to California either. But in the last few years, I have definitely developed miserable seasonal allergies that have kept me off the bike at times.
I’ve found a combination that helps me, but I’d be curious to hear what you find useful as well. Here’s my remedy:
- Sinex nasal spray
- Claritin D
- BioAllers Sinus & Allergy Relief Spray (homeopathic) – 2 sprays in each nostril whenever necessary
- More Sinex just before bed, if necessary
Ok, this isn’t terribly exciting, and not much of a routine. But it seems to be working. I’m sure there are other methods too, and I’d love to hear about which products work best for you and why, especially if there are reasons relating to your cycling that you’ve chosen the solutions you have.
