I’ve had allergies for as long as I can remember. Like clockwork, every time a plant blooms (or the wind blows, or I haven’t dusted in a while,) I get a sneezing attack. Likewise, I’ve always got Kleenex at the ready. My seemingly incessant sneezing, chronically excessive nose blowing, and rubbing/itching has put too much pressure on the skin around my nose and after several years, has resulted in a few broken capillaries.
