· Q: Does hay fever mean IÂ’m allergic to hay? I have this every year for a couple of months and it makes me miserable. What can I do?

Try: Stinging Nettle or bitter gentian root if you want to go the herbal route, if not Nasalcrom is a favorite over-the-counter remedyÂ

· Q: IÂ’m 11 and have started to smell a little. You know, body odor – BO – or whatever else it is called. I shower every day. What else can I do?

Try: The most effective way to wipe out body odor is to wipe out the bacteria that cause it. You donÂ’t smell bad right after a shower, right?Â…Teen Spirit, Shower To Shower, and Dial soapÂ
