Spring Is Here And Heralds Flowers As Well As Allergies. It is that time of the year again - spring is here after the winter which by all accounts has been mild; in a sense, it has not been a severe winter.

Spring Is Here And Heralds Flowers As Well As Allergies

Spring is the season that brings the crowds; many people from across Britain (not withstanding the issues of Brexit) travel to Europe to enjoy the mild weather as cooler temperatures in Mediterranean Europe boost tourism business. There is a downside to spring, as it is popularly known as allergy season. The days are becoming warmer. Flowers begin to bloom and so does the pollen count. Spring is perfect for people who do not like cold weather, but for people with allergies, it is the beginning of suffering. A common sight among office goers, school children and students are bloodshot eyes. EAACI Scientific Programme - Clinical Village.

EAACI Scientific Programme - Clinical Village

EUROPEAN ACADEMY OF ALLERGY & CLINICAL IMMUNOLOGY: Progressive Sinusitis. At this time of the year among the most common observations are “Guess what?


Another bad allergy season is on us”. It is akin to saying “It is getting warmer; it is hotter than last year”. In fact weather channel presenters on television channels have such stock phrases already keyed in their teleprompter. No need for writers to even think. The fact of the matter is it is all true. Pollen counts are through the roof. Here is a simple guide to tell the difference If you are suffering from a common cold with the symptoms of a congested nose then most probably you are treating it with OTC (over the counter) medication such as a decongestant. Now that you are aware of an allergy and if the stuffed nose or sinus condition lasts for several weeks then the following may happen - Hay Fever Allergies Rising In Europe. The study informs that the number of people suffering from hay fever will double in the next 30 years.

Hay Fever Allergies Rising In Europe

The chief reason for the increase in hay fever is climate change. Rising carbon dioxide levels aided by warmer climates is not only increasing it is also benefiting the ragweed which has high mortality to flourish. Ragweed which is native to North America is growing at an alarming rate in almost all of Europe with Germany, France, Hungary and Romania showing massive incidences. The other bit of bad news on the pollen from is because of climate change the delaying of frost is extending the hay fever season. The picture of Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, blowing into her handkerchief best represents the effect of hay fever.

Awareness And Mental Fortitude Helps Pregnant Women Handle Allergies

They not only have to care for their health they have the responsibility of caring for their unborn fetus. On planet Earth, evolution has witnessed billions of babies born and more are in the offing. Allergy as science knows it appeared courtesy of Dr. John Bostock - he described for the first time the allergic symptoms of hay fever in 1819; it took another 50 years for Charles Blakely to perform a skin test when he applied pollen to a break in his skin to determine the cause of allergy. Indeterminate particles in the environment induced reactions - such particles were termed "allergens". SAM 2017, Skin Allergy Meeting - Joint Meeting With ESCD.

Identifying, Managing and Treatment of Chronic & Allergic Sinusitis. At some point in the life of most people, they would have suffered symptoms like headaches, runny nose, red and itchy eyes. These are symptoms of a problem called sinusitis, but when these symptoms become stronger, it is known as chronic sinusitis or rhinosinusitis.

The condition of patients suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis can be measured by the inflammation around the nasal passages and any swelling of the nasal cavities; this condition may persist for up to 10-12 weeks. It may cause blocking of the nasal passages leading to mucus build up mainly due to the lack of draining facilities. Another form of allergy is commonly known as “hay fever” and it is a seasonal issue.

Hay fever is caused by vast amounts of pollen released by plants, trees, herbs, and grasses during the pollination period. EAACI - Master Class on Primary Immunodeficiencies. EAACI - SERIN 2017.

Allergies During Pregnancy - Asthma, Rhinitis, Urticaria. Benefits of Using an Allergy Specialist for Treatment of Urticaria/Hives. Urticaria, also known as hives, is triggered in many patients by allergens in the air; it starts as an itchy skin patch that may turn into red welts in serious cases. The resulting scratching and itching is also found to vary between mild-to-severe.

The strange thing about an urticaria diagnosis is narrowing down the actual trigger; these range from food items like shellfish, eggs, some nuts, medication allergies and insect bites to viral or bacterial infections, pollen, animal dander, and poison ivy, etc. Hives can be found in different parts of the body; they come in various shapes and sizes and seem to move around, but can also disappear and reappear. At the present time, urticaria diagnosis research reveals two types of hives, acute or short-lived hives and chronic or long-term hives. It is not something new, but a very large percentage of the population in the world suffer from some sort of allergies.
