Symptoms of an allergy, or How to recognize ailment
Allergy, unfortunately, is commondisease. Statistics show that about 30% of Russians suffer from it. Where a greater percentage is observed on a global scale - 85% of the world's population suffer from this unpleasant disease. The disease is caused by a specific response of the immune system to the stimulus. Allergen can be a variety of substances - dust, pollen, pet hair, food, insect bites, medicines.
Symptoms of allergies are varied, they are easily confusedwith signs of other diseases, which is often observed in medical practice. Therapists prescribe medications for colds, bronchitis, asthma and do not suspect that the reason for ineffective treatment lies in the wrong diagnosis. However, such negligence can lead to unpleasant complications.
Symptoms of respiratory type allergies are due tothe ingress of the stimulus into the respiratory tract. Sneezing, itching in the nose, runny nose, a strong cough or even wheezing in the lungs are the main signs of the reaction of immunity to aeroallergen.
Symptoms of allergy affect the organs of vision,there is a burning sensation in the eyes, increased tearing, swelling of the eyelids. The manifestation of a specific reaction is dermatosis, which is accompanied by skin irritations, redness, rashes, swelling of the veils.
Enteropathy develops due to allergicGastrointestinal reactions in response to the intake of certain foods or medicines. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and other intestinal disorders, Quincke's edema are the main symptoms of this type of allergy.
However, the most dangerous manifestation of an acute reactionthe immune system becomes anaphylactic shock, which can develop within a few seconds after the allergen has hit. Most often it provokes insect bites or medications. It manifests as convulsions, loss of consciousness, a rash all over the body, defecation, involuntary urination and vomiting. Any delay in the provision of assistance is fraught with a fatal outcome.
Allergy is a disease that does not strikeadults only. The weak immune system of the child is subject to specific reactions even more often. Symptoms of allergy in children are similar to "adult" symptoms, but skin lesions are more often noted. And in infancy, almost any allergic reaction takes place in the form of diathesis. With special attention to their diet, young mothers who feed infants should be treated. Nuts, citrus fruits, chocolate are the strongest provocateurs.
By the way, an allergy to chocolate, the symptoms of whichcorrespond to enteropathy, - a common ailment. It's all about its components (palm fat, peanut butter, soy lecithin, milk powder, flavors and even chitin).
The above symptomatology refers to localallergic manifestations. Among the general high temperature, malaise, disruption of the nervous system, changes in blood pressure. Without the presence of local manifestations, it is almost impossible to establish the correct diagnosis.
It is worth noting that the causes of this diseasein scientific circles only argue. To date, there is no proven theory. Of course, ecology, poor nutrition, heredity, slagging of the body, parasites are weighty arguments for taking care of one's own health. However, just in case, you should always carry a package of antihistamine drug of a new generation, which quickly and without side effects will remove allergy symptoms and ease the condition.
