Allergies Cured?
meinaz posted:
I have had terrible hay fever all my life. Tests showed I am allergic to trees. But this year, for the first time, I have NO reaction at all during the very time when it's usually the worst! Did I outgrow it (I'm 64). Was it stress related (just retired as well)? Could it be a severe sinus infection I had last spring? What in the world?
Aqua14 responded:
Stress definitely makes allergies worse, so your reduced stress in retirement is a possibility, particularly since tree pollen in most areas of the country is earlier and higher than in previous years.

Whatever it is, wait until next year and if the good news continues, count your lucky stars! Take care & good luck. Judy
