Question: I am 69, living in Florida for the winter. I have had trouble with allergies with the love oak trees, and burning sugar cane. Yesterday I woke up at 4am, had this horrible scratching in my throat, sore, and subsequent coughing. My nasal passages are irritated (I used simply saline and Nasacort Allergy spray. Still burning. The Nasal secretion is clear, lot of sneezing, pressure under my eyes, I feel miserable. I take medicine for high blood pressure, Afib, and a blood thinner.
