I have no idea about how many people in japan have an allergy to pollen, maybe 20% or more?
Usually my bad season starts in March and lasts till July or August with itchy eyes, runny nose, and sneezing…i think I look something miserable.
I used to take medicines, but they didn’t make any sense and I dont’ like them, so I stopped taking them.

I heard if I get older, it may get better. How long should I wait for ? 20 years ? :p

    Your guess is just right.
    It is about 20% of Japanese people are allergic to pollen. I am one of them.
    There are a lot of people who wear big white masks in these days, but just few years ago, it was rare. I remember my mother wearing a big mask made a funny expression on many people`s faces on the streets. Today my mother actually wears a thick glasses particularly for pollen allergy as well!!! That is actually quite funny^^

    Oh, I used to do the pollen drip and drain, but it has skipped over me the past two years. I don’t know why.

    Dhaval from the NYC-Metblogs here – allergies are actually supposed to get only worse as you grow older, not better. Unfortunately . . . :(

    How is your allergy? I still dislike mask, I believe it makes me look strange.
    Anyway, your mum seems nice and funny :D

    Aiee! As long as your allergies don’t lead to asthma and stuff? Hmm, so do you take anything for your allergies?
