Is anyone else dealing with allergies in southern Poland these days? I never had a problem until moving to Kraków, so I am not exactly sure that what I am experiencing is allergies. I had all the symptoms in the spring, but they were minor - they seem a bit worse lately.

Allergy sufferers - please enlighten me! Thanks...

Stuffy nose, sneezing, scratchy throat, generally feeling run down - you know...like a cold, but without the severity of a cold. I have never experienced allergies before, but I am aware of the symptoms.

Hi BLS, I developed a bit of an allergy since moving to Poland. Nothing serious, but it does involve a bit of sneezing, running nose etc. it normally happens when it is sunny, which leads me to assume it has something to do with the pollen levels. I never suffered from it before, but then again, i am from ireland, and we never had the sun that much. Not sure where you are from, but the differneces in climat might affect it.

strange but true: if you look at the sun you will sneeze.

My girlfriend has started suffering with allergies just this summer in Krakow. Had never been a problem for her before.

From Chicago - I know moving to a new place (esp. a new continent) can present some health challenges, but this kinda surprised me (esp. this time of year). The sun comment makes sense - it hasn't rained recently, so perhaps the air is full of pollen.

Sorry to hear that others are affected, but I'm happy to hear that I'm not alone...
