I should probably know this, but... I've never had allergies so I don't know what it feels like. Tonight, though, I have an itch in the back of my throat and my ears are itching. My eyes are itchy, too, but that's normal for me. I use natural tears for that. However, I want to stick pipe cleaners in my ears. The itch is driving me crazy. Could this be allergies? I hesitate to take benadryl because it knocks me out and I have an appointment in the morning. Anything else I could do other than medications?
