Look to irritant : While you may have an allergic component to your events they can also be caused by the volume of irritants in the air. Having particle filters in your sleeping quarters & use of steroid nasal sprays (in season) may give you more relief than simple antihistamines.Using a nasal saline to wash out your nasal passages can also help remove any accumulated debris that would trigger an event.
