To whom spring is red, the joy of meet­ing with the first flow­er­ing, and to whom — a red nose, watery eyes and a run­ny nose. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the arrival of spring in many peo­ple is accom­pa­nied by aller­gic reac­tions. Nature has noth­ing to do with it. It is nat­ur­al that the pollen of flow­er­ing plants is very small, light, and volatile. Pollen micropar­ti­cles stay in the air for a long time and, at the very first breath of the breeze, are car­ried over long dis­tances, thus per­form­ing nat­ur­al pol­li­na­tion.

Aller­gy: how to pro­tect your­self

spring aller­gy — This is the reac­tion of the body to the pollen of flow­er­ing plants. Pollen micropar­ti­cles pen­e­trate even the nar­row­est cracks and can get into our home if we open the win­dows for ven­ti­la­tion. going on aller­gies in spring not due to weak­ened immu­ni­ty, but, on the con­trary, from the exces­sive “com­bat capa­bil­i­ty” of the pro­tec­tive forces, the body’s sen­si­tiv­i­ty to the ingress of for­eign small par­ti­cles, such as the pollen of flow­er­ing plants. The reac­tion imme­di­ate­ly makes itself felt when the spring flow­er­ing of trees, bush­es, flow­ers appears. That is why the arrival of spring in some cas­es does not bring joy, but makes us hide.

Spring allergy or SARS?

So you have aller­gies in the spring. What do we have to do? Those who first encoun­tered spring aller­giesmay con­fuse it with colds. spring aller­gy symp­toms very sim­i­lar to the symp­toms of SARS. And there­fore, with the appear­ance of a run­ny nose, sneez­ing, tear­ing, pain in the eyes, itch­ing, cough­ing, red­ness and swelling of the nose, one should not hasti­ly begin to be treat­ed for catarrhal viral infec­tions. You need to urgent­ly go to the doc­tor and tell him in detail about every­thing that is hap­pen­ing to you. Anoth­er type of spring aller­gy is asth­ma. Pollen affects the res­pi­ra­to­ry tract and caus­es short­ness of breath, wheez­ing, cough­ing. A per­son lit­er­al­ly suf­fo­cates, and if he does not take action on time, this can lead to a dis­as­trous result.

spring allergies what to do


Despite the out­ward resem­blance spring aller­gy symp­toms still dif­fer­ent from the symp­toms of colds. Spring aller­gies begin sud­den­ly, and colds over­come the body grad­u­al­ly. With ARVI, it hurts the joints, but this is not the case with aller­gic reac­tions. With aller­gies, there is no fever, and with colds, along with a run­ny nose and cough, body tem­per­a­ture ris­es.

We are treated correctly

In any case, when symp­toms appear, self-med­ica­tion is impos­si­ble. If you treat spring aller­gies like a cold, you can cause even more harm to your health. In case of spring aller­gies, the doc­tor pre­scribes anti­his­t­a­mines, antial­ler­gic drugs, injec­tions that reduce exces­sive activ­i­ty of the body, sprays against swelling of the nose, drops to relieve inflam­ma­tion of the mucous mem­brane of the eyes.

In addi­tion to the drugs pre­scribed by the doc­tor, you your­self must try to pre­vent spring aller­gies. For exam­ple, dur­ing spring flow­er­ing, go out less, close doors and win­dows tight­ly, fresh­en the air in the room with an air puri­fi­er, do not dry washed clothes in the fresh air so that pollen does not stick to clothes. Dai­ly wet clean­ing of the premis­es, pro­tec­tive masks when the vac­u­um clean­er is run­ning, or dust­ing off the book­shelves will also help reduce aller­gic reac­tions. It would be even bet­ter for the time of spring flow­er­ing to go to those regions where spring has not yet come or the trees have already fad­ed. And if this is not pos­si­ble, then it is nec­es­sary to cre­ate the most favor­able con­di­tions at home to pre­vent spring aller­gies.
