gvhd and seasonal allergies

Hello everyone,
I was wondering if anyone ever got cured of seasonal allergies after their transplant, reason being the donor wasn't allergic to pollen etc.

My eyes still have "a speck of dust" in my eye feeling. GVHD for sure. I itch a lot, itchy throat sometimes producing a dry cough.

However the symptoms of seasonal allergies that I get every year , itchy red eyes, runny nose, sneezing in the early morning, have not appeared, though everyone I know has. Is it because of my suppressed immune system ???? or because the donor didn't have it?

My appointment with the hematologist is tomorrow, I will ask him about it.

The itch and nausea is taking it's toll on me. I have taken pictures of all the places I itch so that my doctor can see clearly.

Everyone, take care,
Female 53, diagnosed MDS RAEB1 in August 2016, watch and wait for 9 months. Sibling match - Stem cell transplant in June 2017. Some GVHD skin.
