Allergy


Anything in our environment can create allergy, most nasal allergy symptoms occur in spring, late summer and early fall seasons.

Rhinitis is a very common condition and may be defined as inflammation of the inner lining of the nose and is characterized by rhinorrhea (runny nose), nasal itching, nasal congestion and sneezing. Characteristic physical findings in individuals who have allergic rhinitis include conjunctival swelling and erythema, eyelid swelling, lower eyelid venous stasis, lateral crease on the nose, swollen throat, and middle ear effusion. Allergy-nasal drip is mucus accumulation in the back of the nose and throat giving the sensation of, mucus dripping downward from the back of the nose. Post-nasal drip may lead to chronic sore throat or chronic cough. Post-nasal drip can be caused by rhinitis, sinusitis, and gastro esophageal reflux disease or by a disorder of swallowing. It is frequently caused by an allergy, which may be seasonal or persistent throughout the year.

Antihistamines with or without decongestants can be used for mild or intermittent nasal allergy cure. In some cases anti-inflammatory medications are required in the form of intra- nasal steroid sprays. The combination of an antihistamine and a topical nasal steroid spray can give good relief with minimal side effects.

1.Throat and Nasal allergy


Nasal allergies, or allergic rhinitis, occur when allergens in the air cause uncomfortable symptoms that affect the nasal passages. Nasal allergies are most often triggered by allergens like: Pollen from grass, flowers, ragweed, or trees, animal dander, molds, dust, feathers, foods (for infants). Consistent exposure to allergens like dust, mold, and pet dander or conditions like asthma and eczema may predispose a child to developing allergic rhinitis.

Throat allergy symptoms include; Sneezing, sniffling/runny nose, nasal congestion, cough or allergic sore throat due to congestion dripping into the throat, itchy eyes that water, reduced sense of smell, Itchy nose, congestion in the ears, headaches. In children, the inflammation of nasal allergies can result in sleep apnea, snoring, difficulty sleeping, sleepwalking, breathing through the mouth, wetting the bed. An itchy throat can be due to allergies, dehydration, throat inflammation, smoking and even certain medications such as barbiturates and diuretics.

Allergy treatment: The allergy remedies available are antihistamines, decongestants, corticosteroids and leukotriene inhibitors. It is important to treat those conditions to manage allergic rhinitis. Stay away from allergens that you can avoid. Saline nasal sprays are a natural remedy that may give a good nasal allergy relief and allergy shots (immunotherapy). Nasal sprays for allergy are the most effective medications for the treatment of nasal allergy symptoms.

Swollen throat allergy: Throat swelling allergies are a characteristic of anaphylaxis, a severe allergy that affects the entire body. Avoiding allergens that trigger throat to swell will help in avoiding a life-threatening allergic condition. Any allergic reaction can cause anaphylaxis, but anaphylaxis due to insect stings, certain food allergies and medications are more common. An allergy doctor performs tests and diagnoses which substances cause anaphylaxis in the body.
