Who else is allergic to hay?
I hope I'm not the only one. :lol:
Out of my family, I am the most allergic to hay however. If I get a single cut from hay, I break out into red welts. Also when ever I work with it I can't stop sneezing.
Who else is allergic to hay? Doesn't it suck to have horses and deal with hay?
Me! Drives me crazy!
My eyes swell like crazy and I get all blotchy and sneeze like I'm gonna die. Lol.
It seems worse when I mess with round bales. Squares are fine but round bales are horrible.
Me. Big time!
While the rashes are terrible, it's the sinus problems I really struggle with. If I don't wear a bandana or mask while getting or stacking hay I'll get massive sinus infection the next day. Like... have to go the to Dr to get the good meds to be able to even get out of bed and function, sick.
I started taking allergy meds year around, and because all I have is round bales this year, which I have to fork hay off of for many animals, I faithfully wear my bandanas. Pretty bright colors too, and as soon as I'm done with chore time, in I go to wash my face and rinse my eyes, without fail.
I still struggle, but it has helped quite a bit.
UMMM, HELLOOO I CAN'T BREATH OVER HERE,LOL!!!!!
I suppose also being seriouslyallergic to horses, dust, pollen, trees, flowers, dogs, cats....doesn't help much either, huh? The things I don't put up with to ride, hahaha
I get the worst rash from it. If it touches bare skin, I break out in the ugliest, nastiest red bumpy rash. It lasts about 12 hours then disappears.
Hay and dust both drive me nuts. More than once I've wondered why someone who doesn't spend so much time with horses didn't get my allergy!
Hay and grass will do it for me. If a horse licks me I get a rash so I have to wear rubber gloves for groomung and barn chores
Dust and alfalfa kill me. No real issue with the grass hay, but I get itchy red oozy welts wherever alfalfa scratches me. Thankfully my guy does okay on just grass!
