    I would head to the health shop and pick up a homeopathic hayfever remedy. The staff are usually very knowledgable and should be able to help you out in choosing a product.

    Homeopathics are safe with no side effects.

    Polaramine works and is safe to use like Izzy's Mummy says but just be aware that it can make you drowsy.

    Alternatively check with your pharmacist for a nasal spray that is made from natural ingredients. It works by putting a film over the receptors that cause your allergy. Tastes horrible when it runs down but works fairly well. I'm not sure what it's called and I know you can take it while BFing so check if ok while pregnant. I've also heard eating honey from your local area can help desensitize. If all else fails, avoiding outside and a face mask help.

    Hey

    I have pregnancy induced allergies! Its like I am suffering from a cold that never goes away! I rang the pregnancy drug line here and they said from your second trimester it is safe to take Claratyne and Zyrtek. I try to take them sparingly but around Xmas when it was a busy time, did take them over a few days in a row. There was another hayfever tablet that they said you could take in first trimester but as I was in 2nd when I rang (by that stage I was soooo over it) I didnt get the name but it did start with P so it could be what others above have suggested as they did tell me it could make you drowsy.

    Hope this helps
