Allergy to flowering
Allergy to bloom is a diseaseseasonal. However, it should be noted that the period at which the organism reacts to the pollen of plants can continue from the middle of April until the frosts. In the early spring, as a rule, there is an allergy to birch, hazel, alder.
The main signs of the condition is a runny nose, increased tearing, attacks of suffocation, similar to the manifestation of bronchial asthma.
Experts agree that the allergy to flowering develops due to weakened immunity. In addition, the disease can also be of a genetic nature.
An allergy to bloom may be present inbody, does not manifest itself to the moment, until there is any stimulus ("provocateur"). Among the provoking factors should include stressful situations, smoking, past infections, pollution of the environment.
Based on the results of some studies,a high content of harmful compounds in rainwater. These components are able to modify pollen, making it, thus, even more dangerous for the allergy sufferer. While earlier in the water did not contain so many harmful substances. She, "nailing" the dust to the ground, brought allergy sufferers relief.
In addition, an allergy to flowering canexacerbate in windy weather, as it brings more pollen into the air. And, conversely, in a calm allergy is much easier due to a lower concentration of dust.
The most effective method of combating the diseasespecific immunotherapy is considered. Specialists identify the causative agent in the patient (for example, the patient has an allergy to poplar fluff), and before the beginning of the season, he is injected with a drug containing the provoking component. Thus, the body develops a gradual addiction to the drug, immunity is formed. And then, during flowering, he does not react at all to stimuli, and the ailment proceeds in a much lighter form. The use of regular immunotherapy for three to four years can save a person from a predisposition to allergies.
However, it should be noted that specialistsnot all patients are guaranteed a favorable outcome. The results of treatment largely depend on the individual characteristics of each. However, as practice shows, immunotherapy is effective in ninety-five cases out of a hundred.
Taking into account the patient's condition, it is appointed from fiveup to ten vaccinations per course. The medicament used can cause the same symptoms that occur during the flowering season (redness of the eyes, runny nose, sneezing). In some cases, the doctor may prescribe a more gentle course, lowering the dosage of the drug. Specific immunotherapy should be started long before flowering plants, otherwise treatment will not bring the desired effect.
If the patient's body is not used toallergen, the work is directed to fight with the disease itself, and not with its cause. Experts recommend taking antihistamines. Antiallergic agents help alleviate the symptoms of the disease, which are expressed in the expansion of blood vessels, the release of excessive amounts of hydrochloric acid, contamination of the nose, mucous eyes, respiratory tracts on which bacteria and microbes that are harmful to the body settle).
The most popular of antihistaminespreparations are considered "Telfast", "Zirtek", "Clarotodin" and other means. These medicines have a common, immune-restoring effect. In addition, they are able to control the symptoms of allergies. As a rule, the dosage is prescribed as a standard - a pill daily. The treatment course for bloom allergy lasts from ten to fifteen days.
