Airborne allergies, hay fever and allergic rhinitis

With every breath we take, we breathe millions of microscopic particles such as dust, pollen, plant spores, viruses, bacteria and even pollutants in the form of chemicals in the air or by substances that come into contact with skin and mucous membranes.

Many of these particles are filtered and removed from the nose and respiratory system, while others penetrate the body. If the immune system is strong and healthy, the infection can be shielded against pollutants, viruses and other harmful substances that can enter the body via air or by skin contact.

The immune system usually will not make the case of harmless substances that enter the body (e.g. pollen, house dust, animal dander, etc). In some people, however, the immune system misinterprets these harmless particles and identifies them as dangerous.

This causes the release of a substance called histamine and other inflammatory compounds in the body. This prompts the body to defend against the perceived threat through a number of mechanisms, including sneezing, mucous production, watery eyes and swelling of the skin, thus causing problems such as allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, hay fever and skin rashes. Many people try home remedies for allergies and other remedies for allergy, but are not very effective.

People who develop allergic rhinitis in warm weather, windy conditions or in the spring is generally allergic to grass, tree and flower pollen. Those who have this reaction all year round are probably also allergic to dust, mold or animal dander. Many home remedies for allergies and allergy remedies are many even unnatural ineffective.

Because the mucous membranes of the nose and respiratory tract are affected, people with allergic rhinitis are often more vulnerable to colds, sinusitis, flu and other respiratory infections, thus forming a vicious cycle of a compromised immune system, allergies increasing, progressive fatigue and weakening of the system.

Antihistamines can be very effective and many people with severe allergies to airborne substances find it very difficult to lead a normal life without them. Preventing or reducing the allergic reaction, antihistamines may also help prevent the cycle of disease that occurs due to frequent allergic attacks. The vast majority of medicines used antihistamines for allergy.
