Everyone is happy with the arrival of spring, the first flowers and swollen buds, except for allergy sufferers. For them, a difficult period begins, when all allergic reactions become aggravated, including allergic skin diseases. Can unpleasant symptoms be prevented?
Itching, inflammation, skin rashes — these and other skin manifestations of spring allergies cause a lot of inconvenience and worsen the quality of life. Before flowering, there is still time to do allergy prevention and avoid spring exacerbation.

To do this, you must follow five important rules:
- exclude from the diet all potentially dangerous allergen products (citrus fruits, nuts, spices, sauces, smoked meats, sausages, marinades, whole cow’s milk, honey, chocolate, products with preservatives, flavor enhancers, etc.);
- enjoy only hypoallergenic cosmetic and hygiene products, moisturize the skin;
- get tested for the presence of helminths in the body (yes, these “cohabitants” play an important role in the development of allergies);
- refuse from bad habits, lead a healthy lifestyle and strengthen the immune system;
- take care about gut health.
Gut microflora and allergies
Numerous studies have proven that the violation of the composition and quality of the intestinal microflora is one of the most important factors affecting the development and course of allergic skin diseases.
The fact is that with dysbacteriosis, the intestinal mucosa is damaged, which is a barrier to the path of allergens that enter the body. As a result, it ceases to properly perform its barrier function, the permeability of the intestinal walls increases, and allergens (macromolecules, including bacterial agents and viruses) easily enter the bloodstream.
In addition, a decrease in the number of beneficial lactobacteria and bifidobacteria in the intestine creates conditions for the development of pathogenic microorganisms, which leads to various violations of physiological processes in the intestine. And it also contributes to the aggravation of allergic reactions.
That is why on the eve of the flowering period, when the body is especially vulnerable and sensitive to allergens, it is necessary to bring the intestinal microflora back to normal. To do this, it is recommended to drink a course of probiotic preparations.
However, they should be chosen with caution, because not all probiotics are created equal. Choose those that support the development of your own normal intestinal microflora (it is individual for each person!), And do not replace it with other strains of bacteria unusual for it.
This probiotic preparation is Laktovit Forte. It contains spores of lactobacillus bacillus coagulans (B. coagulans), folic acid (vitamin B9) and cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12).
Unlike other probiotics Laktovit Forte restores the intestinal mucosa, which reduces the absorption of allergens into the body, stimulates the growth of its own microflora, including bifidobacteria, inhibits the growth and reproduction of pathogenic flora (Salmonella, Shigella, Clostridium, Streptococcus), normalizes the processes of digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Vitamins B9 and B12 accelerate the action of B. coagulans, have an immunomodulatory effect, and increase the body’s resistance to infection. Application of the drug Laktovit Forte reliably eliminates the symptoms of dysbacteriosis.
