Have you tried a vaporizer in stead of a humidifier? I have that issue myself, Vicks makes something you can put into the air. It helps. Also depending on how old she is, the best allergy medicine for me seems to be Lortadine (Not Claritin but both serve the same purpose). I also do saline spray every few hours during the day, especially before going outside, and immediatley after I blow my nose. Alot. The pollen is absolutley horrible right now every where so another thing she should do if she is outside often, take a shower or change clothes once she comes inside for the day so she isn't still carrying extra pollen around. I hope this helps!!!
