The knowledge of them, as well as early detection of the exact variety, can help you to deal with allergies, if you are among the affected.
What is pollen? This is the pollen of flowering plants, which are spread by the wind, entering the nasal cavity and make us tear and sneeze. Pollen concentration is more increased in late April and creates inconvenience for sensitive people. The situation becomes particularly difficult in May, in a dry and warm weather. Rain somewhat relieves the symptoms. Even the spring cleaners know that.
Little horror of people sneezing begins with flowering poplars, birch, maple and hazelnut. Then “the enemy” comes from the field – flowering of wheat, oats and rye begins. Various herbaceous grasses and beautiful green grass are also guilty for allergies. In the third period allergy sufferers are plagued by flowering nettle and plantain.
Am I allergic? Sometimes you ignore spring allergic rhinitis, confusing it with colds. You should know, however, that it is accompanied by copious watery discharge, often sneezing, itchy throat, ears, nose, eyes. If you find that is repeated every year at the same time, most likely you are allergic to pollen. House cleaning may become also repulsive to you, so rely on professional help.
Treatment. Doctors say that it is possible to diagnose absolutely accurate and reliable type of spring allergy that embitters our lives in the most pleasant season of the year. However, there is such an abundance of allergens, it is not always they can be identified and caught “in step”. It is important to diagnose the “pest” in time. Treatment continues for at least 2-3 years. Only after this period of time specialists suggest that there may be an effect. There are also alternative treatments with homeopathy and Eastern medicine.
If you suffer from spring allergies, stay indoors as long as you can until the causes of the problem disappear.
