    I have been out riding everyday this week. I can see clouds of yellow pollen blowing off the pine trees here. During each ride my nose starts to plug up and I have difficulty breathing. I wear a FF helmet and had to shut off a sneeze one time. Gross as it is I couldn't sneeze inside my helmet. I will be glad when all the pollen counts drop.

    Could you where a dust mask or a bandanna to cover your nose and mouth...Being it would be under your helmet you would still look cool riding..:)

    get water and soak a dust mask or a bandanna then put it on. you can ring it out but leave it damp as you can. it works. i had a lady rider once she complained about that stuff. i told her to at least try it. she said it works great but dries out . give it a try

    I never thought about using a bandanna under a helmet but it sounds like a good idea, I'll give it a try and see how it does. If it works wet I may try the charcoal one after that. Thanks guys

    I'm allergic to grasses and it usually lasts for the month of June.

    I've been using loratadine, the generic of claratin for many years. You need to take it every day during the allergy duration and not just when symptoms crop up. It works well for me, its pretty cheap and non-drowsy.

    My biggest problem is the itchy-Burning eyes.

    I'm not allergic to pollen, but I hate to see it get everywhere, such a pain to rinse off the patio furniture, house, etc....
