Allergic rhinitis: prevention of possible complications
The opinion among the population about the climatic conditions of living of allergy sufferers is always different.Some argue that allergy sufferers need to live only in dry and warm climates, but this is true only for people diagnosed with tuberculosis.Many people think that the allergy disappears only on the sea coast, but they forget that in these regions, various plants grow, including ragweed.In general, the problem of living with an allergy sufferer should not bother at all - it is possible to live with this disease in any region, it is important to simply adhere to the diet and treatment prescribed by a doctor.
Do not be afraid to go out during the seasonal colds - there is an opinion that the allergy will be strongly manifested.In fact, doctors do not find any connection with these two phenomena.However, there is one nuance: there is an allergy to the sun( photodermatitis), which implies the exclusion of sunlight on the skin.
Treatment of allergic rhinitis
Medicine can offer a variety of drugs that can reduce the intensity of allergic manifestations.Yuri Smolkin says:
"Popular antihistamines are needed in case of symptomatic treatment - these remedies showed themselves well with ancillary and direct therapy, but they should in no way be taken as a panacea.If a person has allergic rhinitis( cold), then he shows nasal sprays, bronchial asthma - bronchodilators, dermatitis - external agents( ointments, creams). »
People are very wary of antihistamines - they are believed to be able to causeRetardation and drowsiness.But these side effects are inherent only in older drugs, and modern methods do not affect the general condition of an allergic person.Recommended to read:
Effective nasal corticosteroids - these drugs almost immediately relieve the symptoms of an allergic rhinitis, but their population does not like even more than antihistamines.This attitude is associated with the fact that nasal corticosteroids belong to hormonal drugs - they increase weight, and disrupt the hormonal balance in the body.But doctors say that it is nasal corticosteroids that do not pose any danger - hormones simply do not get into the total blood flow.
Please note: by American, European and Russian experts have adopted and approved certain recommendations of - for uninfected symptoms of allergic rhinitis nasal corticosteroids should be prescribed only for 3 months, then it is necessary to evaluate their effectiveness competently.
If the allergy is severe, the therapy is prescribed for a period of one month, then the patient's condition is assessed and, if necessary, the treatment regimen is adjusted.If the patient is diagnosed with rhinosinusitis or polyposis, the doctors perform a surgical procedure.
The only method that can affect the cause of an allergy is vaccination with an allergen - it can be administered to adults and children.But keep in mind that such a procedure can be entrusted only to professionals, first-class specialists.
