Any allergic reactions in spring are more pronounced due to the fact that the body is weakened by winter cold, lack of salt and vitamins. How to avoid unpleasant symptoms, said Olga Vlasova, head of the department of medical prevention of the City Clinical Hospital 1.
Because of what it happens
According to statistics, 20% of the population suffers from allergies in industrialized countries, but in fact - much more, just for many years unpleasant symptoms of allergy are attributed to colds.
Allergy is a genetically determined disease. If one of the parents suffers from it, then the probability of the onset of the disease in a child is 30-40%, if both parents are 75-80%. But often the allergy manifests itself after a generation, that is, the child inherits it from his grandmother or grandfather.
In order not to catch an allergy, it is necessary to timely treat diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (gastritis, biliary dyskinesia, intestinal dysbiosis, etc.) and remove parasites from the body, the presence of which can lead to allergic reactions in people who do not even have this predisposition. A fairly common problem in the modern world is an allergic reaction to medicines. Almost 10% of all side effects from various drugs are of an allergic nature. The problem is that nowadays people receive a large number of pharmaceutical products from childhood.
The best way to avoid drug allergies is to stay healthy. The less we get sick, the less drugs. It is important to use medications according to the instructions, not to cancel the doctor's prescription without permission, because haphazard intake of medications can lead to allergies.
What to do
