Dust allergy. Treatment with folk remedies or a visit to the hospital?
Although we are used to considering allergies to be a fairly everyday and common disease, its danger to the body should not be underestimated. When the first symptoms (allergic reactions) appear, you should consult a doctor, and not prescribe treatment yourself (including according to instructions from the Internet). The most correct and safest decision is always a visit to the hospital, for the help of professionals who will prescribe you an examination, help you identify the allergen, and prescribe a comprehensive treatment with drugs prescribed individually. Usually, these are local (drops for eyes and nose, sprays and solutions for the nasopharynx, gels and creams for the skin) and systemic antihistamines, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and hormonal (corticosteroid) drugs.
Folk remedies can be an effective ally in the fight against allergies, but only if they do not replace medication. Thoughtless use of recommendations from the Internet can not only fail but also worsen the patient’s condition. However, home remedies for allergies can be a good option for relieving symptoms and reducing discomfort.
But before we move on to the “home” recipes and recommendations, let’s define the conditions for which traditional medicine is powerless:
- Quincke’s edema (giant urticaria) – massive edema of the skin, mucous membranes, and subcutaneous fatty tissue;
- Anaphylactic shock is an acute allergic reaction of an immediate-type that occurs when a patient comes into contact with an allergen;
- Bronchial asthma is a respiratory tract disease accompanied by bronchospasm.
Each of these extremely dangerous conditions requires urgent professional medical attention. Do not self-medicate and do not even wonder how to get rid of allergies at home – go to the hospital right away. Open the next page to read alternative treatment.
