Video: ❶ Spring Is The Time Of Flowering And Allergies
Spring is the most beautiful time of the year. But not for allergy sufferers. The pollen of flowering ash trees, beeches, poplars, elms, willows, as well as shrubs and grasses is carried by the wind for many kilometers around forests, parks and groves, causing allergy sufferers to have an acute attack of the so-called spring allergy. Location: Location:
The pollen of more than 100 species of trees, shrubs and grasses is allergenic. Therefore, even such a radical method of treatment as leaving for another region or country is not always effective. At the same time, thanks to the combination of correctly selected antihistamines and special hygiene procedures, it is quite possible to minimize allergic reactions to spring pollen.
Antihistamines include topical medications, such as decongestants or sprays, and pills that lower total histamine levels in the blood. But even over-the-counter and media-advertised antihistamines shouldn't be taken without a doctor's prescription. Only a doctor who is familiar with the characteristics of the patient's body and the type of allergic reactions characteristic of him should deal with the selection of drugs.
A complex of seemingly simple but effective hygiene measures will also help to minimize the manifestations of allergies. Cleaning and humidifying the indoor air is one of the simplest measures. For this purpose, a conventional ultrasonic humidifier is suitable, due to which the volatility of pollen in humid air is significantly reduced.
Excellent results are obtained by daily wet cleaning of the room, during which pollen deposited on furniture, floors and walls is destroyed. It is advisable to send curtains and curtains for washing or dry cleaning during the spring allergy period, which in themselves can be a source of dust allergy, and during the spring flowering of plants they accumulate allergenic pollen in the folds of fabric.
Returning home, it is advisable to take a shower, wash your face and rinse your hair, rinsing the pollen from the body and hair. It is also worth giving up drying clothes on the balcony with open windows, since pollen in the air accumulates on the fabric, causing an aggravation of allergic attacks.
But even if a comprehensive fight against spring allergies does not give visible results, you should definitely consult a doctor. After all, allergies are not just watery eyes and swollen mucous membranes. This is a serious shake-up for the immune system, which, if not properly treated, can provoke serious diseases such as bronchial asthma and dermatitis.
