Get ready for spring allergy season! We will teach you how to deal with allergies in the spring, on the website of the Lisa magazine.
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.
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.
