Ways to deal with spring allergy symptoms

The arrival of spring allows us to take off heavy clothes and put on bright T-shirts and beautiful light clothes. This makes all the beautiful recovery seasons also bring a traditional gift to our clinics - patients who are troubled by sneezing, itching and tears. Yes, this is also a season of extreme allergy. As an allergic patient, I know the pain. Spring allergy medicine has become "allergic rhinitis", precisely the nose is inflamed; commonly known as hay fever, I have not figured out why everyone calls it "hot" because allergies usually do not cause fever. Of course, pollen is correct, because pollen is often the initiator of many allergic symptoms.

Talk about the first allergen "pollen", which was first discovered in some flowering trees and then found in flowering plants. These small pollen grains enter the nasal cavity by breathing; about 5-10% of the population will respond abnormally to such small particles, and excessive secretion of chemical histamine will cause typical allergic symptoms such as sneezing, itching, and runny nose. Or it is a headache. Many people have other allergic symptoms such as asthma or eczema.

There is a way to handle it healthily, simple and free! This is to wash the nasal cavity with saline. You can inhale the saline with your nose and spit it out from the mouth or another nasal cavity. Of course, this sounds a bit disgusting, but they do clean up the small pollen grains and dust before they cause allergies. This is also very good for nasal congestion, chronic sinusitis, colds and flu, and even asthma. You can buy this suit at a pharmacy in the community. Of course, you can find a way to complete this healthy self-treatment at home. You only need a small drop bottle to ensure that you use clean cold water to ensure that no fungus or bacteria break into the nose and sinuses.

The main treatment for allergies in spring is over-the-counter antihistamines (Translator's Note: generally considered to be anti-allergic drugs). There are two generations of these drugs: the first contains diphenhydramine, also known as ketamine or chlorpheniramine. These drugs are very few but the effect can only last for a few hours.

Our side effects are symptoms of lethargy. In particular, ketamine has a very strong sleepiness effect. In fact, it is an active ingredient in many over-the-counter stabilizer tablets. For example, Tylenol contains ketamine.

Second-generation antihistamines can be effective for 24 hours and have significantly reduced the side effects of drowsiness, which of course reduces the anti-allergic effects of these drugs. General antiallergic drugs contain loratadine and cetirizine. If you have a lot of runny noses and stuffy nose, adding some decongestants such as pseudoephedrine (also known as Sudfad) can sometimes be very useful. These drugs are called D anti-allergic compounds, such as loratadine-D, but pseudoephedrine also has some auxiliary effects, it is worth mentioning that they can cause insomnia and loss of appetite. At the same time, because they are also important components of methamphetamine, they are not widely recommended, and many countries prohibit the sale of them at pharmacies. Unfortunately, as a substitute for their decongestant phenylephrine, most of the packaging is signed PE, but it has no effect. Fortunately in China, we can also buy pseudoephedrine over-the-counter.

If you have more severe tearing and itching symptoms, over-the-counter eye drops can also work, such as nasal eye net (Masuda Eye Drops). If you need more effective, the doctor can prescribe some long-term effective eye drops such as olopatadine eye drops (Pattan).

After using these methods, if you or your child still have severe hay fever symptoms, then go see a doctor. They may prescribe some prescription drugs, such as steroid nasal sprays. These are usually the last resort. They are basically very effective, but they don't work quickly. You must take it often, once or twice a day. After a few days, your symptoms will improve significantly, and the side effects are usually small. Only some of the nose is dry or nosebleed.

Those with severe symptoms of hay fever need to prescribe nasal sprays with over-the-counter and eye drops to be effective - of course, don't forget the nasal cleansing method mentioned at the beginning of the article, and I think it will last for a few weeks. It can really improve the quality of life of allergic patients to a large extent. Usually in May, when the summer is approaching, most people have already passed the most painful days of the spring.
