Spring allergies — symptoms, prevention and tips on how to cure

April 11, 2017, 04:36 PM

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

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.
