Hay fever causes a number of easily identifiable symptoms.
PrimaveralLa allergy is a reaction of our organism to a substance it perceives as a harmful agent, so that our immune system is activated from the moment it detects that it considers foreign agents.
We are, therefore, to an erroneous and excessive response of our immune system, which in the case of the spring acts against certain substances found in the air inhaled.
These substances are mainly pollen and dust, but also we could find with other substances that our bodies can be identified as foreign and potentially dangerous.
Symptoms of hay fever
Symptoms appear after the arrivals of spring, especially during the most pollination (ie, greater presence of pollen in the air we breathe) are in most cases easily identifiable:
- Itchy eyes or nose
- Runny nose accompanied by nasal congestion.
- Cough, especially after making exercise.
- Choking sensation
- Redness on the skin
- Inconvenience to light.
What are the causes of hay fever?
Obviously, during the spring the leading cause of pollen allergy is precisely because we are facing a time of year during which plants tend to produce more frequent and then spread into the atmosphere.
Besides own pollen itself, we must consider that when combined with pollen particles from chemical pollution, are created once its compounds might be considered more complex, being even more dangerous for our immune system.
Hay fever treatment
Antihistamines are medications that block histamine receptors.
Topical nasal steroids: help improve nasal obstruction.
Steroids are powerful drugs, recommended in case of presence of more severe symptoms.
They are vaccines containing protein extracts of pollens, and are applied as inject able or orally at increasing doses to always generate a tolerance of the immune system.
