ALLERGIC RHINITIS

Allergic rhinitis [AR], more commonly referred to as hay fever, is an inflammation of the nasal passages caused by allergic reaction to airborne substances.

It occurs when an allergen such as pollen dust or animal dander (particles of shed skin and hair) is inhaled by an individual with a sensitized immune system. In such individuals, the allergen triggers the production of the antibodyimmunoglobulin E (IgE), which binds to mast cells and basophils containing histamine.

 

 

There are two types of allergic rhinitis: seasonal and perennial.

Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis occurs in the spring, summer, and early fall, when airborne plant pollens are at their highest levels.
Perennial Allergic Rhinitis occurs all year and is usually caused by airborne pollutants in the home and other places. A child can be affected by one or both types. Symptoms of seasonal Allergic Rhinitis are worst after being outdoors, while symptoms of perennial Allergic Rhinitis are worst after spending time indoors.

CAUSES

  • Ragweed.
  • Sagebrush.
  • Lamb's-quarters.
  • Plantain.
  • Pigweed.
  • Dock/sorrel.
  • Tumbleweed.
  • Cigarette smoke.
  • Perfume.
  • Cosmetics.
  • Cleansers.
  • Copier chemicals.
  • Industrial chemicals.
  • Construction material gases.
  • House mite body parts. All houses contain large numbers of house mites. These harmless insects feed on fibers, fur, and skin shed by the house's larger occupants. Their tiny body parts easily become airborne.
  • Animal dander. Animals constantly shed fur, skin flakes, and dried saliva.
  • Mold spores. Molds live in damp spots throughout the house, including basements, bathrooms, air ducts, air conditioners, refrigerator drains, damp windowsills, mattresses, and stuffed furniture.

SYMPTOMS

The characteristic symptoms of allergic rhinitis are: excess nasal secretion, itching, and nasal congestion and obstruction. The drip of mucus from the sinuses down the back of the throat, combined with increased sensitivity, can also lead to throat irritation and redness. Allergic Rhinitis usually also causes redness, itching, and watery eyes. Fatigue and headache are also common.

CLINICAL GUIDELINES

  • Get plenty of rest, so try lying on the side that lets you breathe the best.
  • Sip hot liquids and drink plenty of fluids.
  • Apply moist heat by holding a warm, wet towel against your face or breathing in steam through a cloth or towel.
  • Don’t use a nose spray with a decongestant in it for than 3 days. If you use it for than 3 days, swelling in your nasal passages may get worse when you stop the medicine.
  • Rinse nasal passages with a saline solution.
  • Identify the allergen, if possible and try to avoid it.
  • Use of special bed and pillow coverings and regular laundering of bed clothes.
  • Avoid dust and pollution.
  • Avoid smoking- or quitting if you do smoke- can greatly decrease the risk of this disease.

DO'S AND DON'TS

There are three steps to be taken when dealing with an allergy. Firstly, identify the cause or allergen Secondly, avoid it.
Thirdly, if avoidance is impossible, treat the symptoms. Keep a diary and try to trace a pattern or relation between your allergic reaction and the allergen. E.g. Sneezing while doing housework could mean you are allergic to house dust.
Do breastfeed your baby for the first 6 months to strengthen the immune system and avoid contact with allergens such as in cow's milk.
Take steps to deal with stress, anxiety and tension as these can
influence the frequency and severity of symptoms
Good nutrition, balanced diet, adequate rest and relaxation will be beneficial.

AVOID ALLERGENS BY

Choosing fresh unprocessed food.
Checking food labels for additives
Taking extra care like wearing gloves while using detergents and cleaners Clean your house, or vacuum frequently to get rid of dust mites, animal hair, etc.
Remember that most allergens are in themselves harmless. It is your body's abnormal response and not the allergen that does the damage. So coming in contact with the offending substance will not hurt, as long as you can control your reaction to it.
Inform the health care personnel about drugs to which you are
allergic to
In case of severe breathlessness, giddiness, and skin rash feeble pulse - RUSH TO YOUR NEAREST DOCTOR.
