Just the temperature drops to the numbers of occurrences in hospitals increases, this is fact. The most common reasons are conjunctivitis and respiratory diseases such as rhinitis, asthma and brinquite.
Rhinitis sufferers like me, know that climate change causes discomfort, among them, itchy nose, runny nose, itchy eyes, many sneezing, a sore throat, headache and nose still congestinado. Here we take medicine orally and spray in the nose, all for the crisis to pass. And the price of these drugs? The two do not go for less than £ 60.00. And it is misleading to think that last one crisis to another only come here a long time, you just have to contact with the allergen to have another crisis.
The allergen is causing allergy, it can be a mite, a food, cloth, smoke, or perfume, for example. The allergists, physicians who care for allergies, usually order blood tests and skin prick test (examination the patient's skin) to check which components he is allergic and thus know what the best treatment.
The winter brings the dreaded conjunctivitis: swollen eyelids, red eyes with discharge and much discomfort. A link between respiratory disease and conjunctivitis, is that it can be caused just by allergic rhinitis or bronchitis. Therefore, as there are several types of conjunctivitis, it is always recommended to seek an ophthalmologist to assess the case.
Write down some important steps to avoid suffering during the winter:
- Wash the nose with saline several times per day;
- Let the well-ventilated area, preferably open to let the sun entering windows;
- Always spend a damp cloth on the furniture and floor, if possible daily to avoid the accumulation of dust.
