Good Morning Gardeningjunkie and Thank You so much for all of your insight. I am so sorry to hear of you symptoms, and trials. I have done some studying as a result of your info, on histamines, and I believe that you might have something there. I have tried otc anti-histamines periodically and they seemed to help a little. I have also been reading more about roseacea- which causes the same symptoms, although as I've mentioned, I do not have an rashe, and the itch is only located on the left side of my nose. I am noticing that red wine, cheese, and spicy foods may make the itch a bit worse. So I will keep studying. I am also using a little witch hazel on my affected area, as well as petroleum jelly which have both been recommended, and seem to be helping a bit. So, Thank You again for your concern, and advice. Most appreciated.
