Grass cutting and allergies

Postby johndavid78 » Fri Apr 28, 2017 12:56 pm

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.

Just don't walk into the bank to deposit all that money wearing that.
