Ooo yes - spent 3 hours in a hot tub last week & felt so good!
Anyway - food as trigger - I’d dismissed it as all my Christmas-related gorging on sugar & fat is well over by mid-February, but hadn’t thought of all the starchy root vegetables that we eat when it’s cold... So I’ll be monitoring that this winter.
However the tree pollen idea does have me intrigued. I found this tree pollen calendar - UK specific, sorry, but maybe useful for other readers & maybe we can find a US one: https://www.worcester.ac.uk/discover/pollen-calendar.html.
I’ve briefly looked up any contraindications to taking Zirtec (Cetirizine Hydrochloride) “Long term” and can’t see anything- I presume you’ve found that it’s okay, Winston? I guess I’d be looking at taking them for 6 weeks.
And I do agree - travel! Bermuda sounds very un-English from here but i know what you mean, I spent my childhood looking up old family in Ireland & agree it’s very special, if rather damp.
