Nasal Filters for Allergy Sufferers

3M, the manufacturer of Filtrete, has taken air filter to another, yet personal level: they’ve made allergy nasal filters. These nasal filters are supposed to replace the old face masks and even allergy medicine that many allergy sufferers have been using. The filters are made of thin and breathable materials that you can put in the nostrils. They are also discreet, nearly invisible when put on, but are supposedly effective in filtering out pollen, pet hair, dander, dust etc.

So the next time you need to work outside in the yard, do BBQ, mow your lawn, clean out your cat litter box or handle anything that is dusty and smelly, try those nose filters out. 3M is in fact not the sole supplier, there’re a couple of nose filter providers out there. They all have fairly good rating on Amazon. Check them out yourself!

Eye Allergy – Itchy Eye Relief

This quick post is for those who are suffering from eye allergy and having itchy and watery eye due to seasonal allergy – mostly caused by pollen. I started having eye allergy last year (I’ve had nasal allergy way before that). This over-the-counter eye-drop – Zaditor – works very well on me. The itch stops right after the first use. I continue using it for a couple of days everyday, then stops and somehow the itch just goes away for the whole season. By the way, I’ve also tried Visine initially, but the itch didn’t go away. Zaditor really relieves eye itch caused by allergy!

My sister also gifts one of her colleagues this, and it works on him, too. Check it out and see reviews by other people who have been using it.

Here are a couple of things that I bought for myself and saw that they have helped relieving my sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes. Hope that you can find at least one that works for you, your friends or relatives.
