I have a lighter (not white)area I just noticed on iris,never saw it before.what could it be? No other symptoms besides seasonal allergy irritation.
Immunotherapy: Allergen immunotherapy is the closest you can get to natural treatment of nasal allergies as it uses allergens you are reactive to to desensitize you to them, but it is not fast.

When seasonal allergy hits hard on day 1, does it help to take 20mg loratadine on 1st day to jump start relief?
Maybe: Recommended dose is 10 mg. Studies with higher doses did not show improvement. Loratadine is the weakest antihistamine out there, would recommend Cetirizine or Fexofenadine instead. If you were going to take more I would take 10 mg twice per day rather than 20 at once. With increased doses I would watch for increased side effects , especially drowsiness. We do use higher doses for hives. ...Read more
