Grass cutting and allergies

Was wondering if any of you folks have tried goggles or dust masks that work when mowing, landscaping, etc.

When bush hogging, my eyes will frequently swell shut. As in, I have to stop immediately, go get benadryl and go to sleep...wait 1 or 2 days before resuming. I have very sensitive allergies.

I saw the "Wolfsnout" online and was wondering if anyone had tried it or something similar.

You have it bad! Fortunately I don't have much of a problem with it so far. Good luck.

Yes, I use flonase, which helps really well with sinuses, sneezing, etc. But the eyes, not so much.

I'm out of town right now but when I get back home I'll take a pic of what I use. Cost me $12 and it's like a ski goggle type thing
It really helps me. When I put the goggles, a breathing mask and my shooting earmuffs on I look like an alien but I don't care! Better that than deal with all the allergy stuff..

Yes, After cutting grass, or bush hogging I will sneeze for a day or two after, and eyes will water and turn red and my nose will stop up, but I just take a Zyrtec before and a benadryal after. Never tried to wear goggles or a mask. Probably should try to.

I use a "mask" I bought at Lowe's. It's actually made to keep cool but also works as a dust mask. I have several and alternative them daily. Really helps.
