Have you tried Nasalcrom?  Its a nasal spray that prevents the mast cells 
from releasing histamine.  It worked fairly well for me last year although it 
does take several days to a couple of weeks to fully take effect.  For me it 
worked well right away.

This year I'm trying a new diet and I'm anxious to see how it affects my 
allergies.  So far so good, the birch are blooming and I've had very little 
sneezing.  What sneezing I have had could have been a mild cold.
