This spring has been kicking DD's backside with her allergy symptoms. Usually things are rocky for a few days with extra congestion and sneezing, and it responds well to the usual plan of upping her Zyrtec to two doses a day for a short while.
But this year, even with two doses, DD's continually stuffed up. Thank goodness it hasn't kicked off an asthma attack. But her eyes are itchy, her nose is itchy, her ears are itchy … our pollen levels have been super high, especially with birch and grasses, which are DD's particular worst allergies.
Since we've stuck with the plan (extra Zyrtec, faithful use of saline spray, showers at night, switching out and watching the pollen count), I think it's time I made a call to the doc. We're supposed to see her in the early summer, and that might be as soon as she wants to see her.
Things aren't really all that much worse, but they're not improving, even with the steps we're taking.
So when do you know when it's time to call the doc?
