Hayfever has been coming on over the last few weeks, and I've been taking Loretadine tablets to keep it at bay.
Today i went out on the bike with the dog on some usual routes i use fairly often. Today was the first time I have been for a few weeks and the paths are quite overgrown. This wasn't a problem though i just rode through it.
I was wearing shorts and at the time it didn't bother me but when i got home my legs were itching like mad and were red and blotchy all over. I've had a shower and have lathered them up in Sudacream to cool the itching down a bit.
I assume it was the pollen that has made them itch so much? It feels like when you have been bitten but all over!
Does anybody else suffer from this? I wonder if i should be taking a different hayfever medicine, or some sort of cream before i ride out.
I get the same sort of rash when I play with my dog, I don't know whether I have an allergy against the dog or whether its just pollen from her running through the fields?
