Spring allergy

Spring allergy
Allergy, is a widespread phenomenon. How do we deal with it to make our life easier
During the past year, nearly 15-20% of the world's population suffered from allergic states, while this percentage did not exceed 2% at the beginning of the twentieth century AD.
How can we explain this sharp increase in the number of allergy sufferers these days? Are people in our time exposed to new materials that did not exist before? Are children become more sensitive due to excessive hygiene? Or are people with allergies more likely to receive treatment before?
It seems that all of the above answers are correct, and what is required now is to know how to deal with this phenomenon, and how we can make our lives easier, despite its worsening.
What is an allergy?
Allergy is the body's reaction to exposure to an external / foreign substance (inserted through breathing, touching, or through the digestive system). When exposed to such allergens, some cells of the immune system secrete certain substances, such as histamine. These substances can cause symptoms such as redness, itching, or nasal congestion.
The most important symptoms that characterize allergies are: itchy skin, itchy eyes and itchy pharynx, in addition to sneezing, and nasal secretions. In some difficult cases, these symptoms can turn into difficult conditions, such as shortness of breath or obstruction of the airway.
Also, today it is known that allergies are associated with asthma. Although allergy is not a dangerous phenomenon, it may affect the quality of life of those who suffer from it.
What are allergens?
There are many causes of allergies, including: dust, certain types of food, some types of insects, chemicals, and others ...
Sometimes it is difficult to determine the cause of an allergy, and a person may be sensitive to several substances together.
Through certain tests, a person can know allergens. This is done by injecting it with allergens, and after a few days he is informed of the result (depending on the reaction of the body). The person is referred to perform these checks by instructing the doctor only.
You may have heard about people with allergies during the transition between different seasons. This type of allergy is called "hay fever" (as well as hay fever), where changes in the weather, dust, and ground materials (dust) pollinate plants are among the main causes of this type of allergy.
This type of allergy can affect anyone, in all generations. However, it often appears for the first time between the ages of 15 and 25, and causes frequent sneezing in most cases, in addition to itchy nose, itchy eyes and tears, and it can even cause asthma that can last for several weeks.
   How is allergy treated?
The most effective treatment for allergies is, of course, not being exposed to its causes. Sometimes, when it comes to dust or weather, it is very difficult to avoid these substances. But despite that, we can reduce exposure to these materials by removing dust, cleaning carpets and sofas for long periods of time, closing windows and putting metal meshes on them, periodically changing bed linens, refraining from exposure to sunlight, and humidifying air by Special humidifier.
Also, there are some types of allergy medications from the antihistamines family, which in turn, block the release of histamine. These medications can be obtained without a doctor's prescription and in many forms, such as pills or syrup (solution), as they are aimed at relieving symptoms of allergic attacks.
As for people who suffer from "hay fever" allergy, it is recommended that they use these drugs on a daily basis, from the onset of the onset of allergies until the end of the transitional period between seasons, in order to prevent additional episodes of allergies.
There are also some types of topical treatments to relieve symptoms, such as allergy eye drops (which are sold without a doctor's prescription), as well as nose drops and various ointments.
