Respiratory Allergy & Treatment and Management:
- Respiratory allergies refer to allergic reactions that primarily affect the respiratory system, including the nose, throat, and lungs.
- These allergies occur when the immune system overreacts to certain substances known as allergens, such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, or mold spores.
- Common symptoms of respiratory allergies may include sneezing, nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.
- Effective treatment and management strategies for respiratory allergies involve a combination of prevention, medication, and lifestyle modifications.
Here are some key points to consider
- Identify and avoid allergens that trigger your respiratory allergies.
- Keep indoor spaces clean and free from dust, mold, and pet dander.
- Use allergen-proof covers for pillows and mattresses.
- Regularly clean or replace air filters in heating and cooling systems.
- Over-the-counter antihistamines can help relieve symptoms such as sneezing, itching, and runny nose.
- Nasal sprays, both steroid-based and antihistamine-based, can reduce nasal congestion and inflammation.
- Decongestants may provide temporary relief for nasal congestion, but they should be used cautiously and for short durations.
- In severe cases, prescription medications such as oral steroids or allergy shots may be recommended.
- Keep windows closed during high pollen seasons and use air purifiers indoors.
- Regularly clean bedding, carpets, and upholstered furniture to minimize dust mites.
- Avoid smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke.
- Practice good hygiene, such as washing hands frequently and avoiding touching your face.
- Allergy shots (subcutaneous immunotherapy) involve gradually exposing the body to increasing amounts of allergens to build tolerance.
- Sublingual immunotherapy (under-the-tongue tablets or drops) is an alternative to shots for certain allergens.
- These treatments can help reduce the severity of respiratory allergy symptoms and provide long-term relief.
