Hay Fever

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I'm always 1000X better when near the sea. No idea which months those are.
Which is why you chose to work in the ONLY country with NO rivers and hundreds of miles from the sea, right? Doh.
You might want to check your facts again, lol. Last I checked, the Red Sea was in fact, a SEA. :)

OK, it could be a mirage, I guess. ;)

Sorry, forgive the noob. I've just found and read another post about it.
No problem. Can you post the link ?
topic2857.html

From the chat there it seems like people suffer in November. I wonder which pollen is in season then.
I was told that the major rice harvest in November/December causes hayfever-sinus problems because thats when everyone is beating the rice plants, which creates a lot of dust, but I've got no idea if this is true. It probably wouldn't apply in Phnom Penh anyway, but PP has it's own problems with air pollution.

Riyadh is pretty far from the sea on my map, Mecca is what? 150 miles away? Jiddah and a few others on the coast/mirage. The strictest regime right next to one of the most enlightened ones (Oman)

I'll check that out, thanks.

Do you know which months are the worst for the grass and tree pollen there?

In Britain, June and July are the worst months for me but symptoms can come anywhere from the end of March right through to August.
Hayfever has been a bitch for me over the years in England, worse as a kid but still get it now,
but never once had any Symptoms of Hayfever out here, even when i'm out in the provinces

I've suffered from hay fever every spring in central Canada for the past 15 years. This is the first year that I have virtually no symptoms. The culprits have been tree and grass pollen. Although I tried numerous medicines, none really worked all that well. I once read that hay fever can appear out of nowhere and make life miserable for the season, but it can disappear just as mysteriously. Hopefully, yours will disappear too.
