Just the temperature drops to the numbers of occurrences in hospitals increase, 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, including, itchy nose, runny nose, itchy eyes, lots of sneezing, a sore throat, headache and nose still congestinado. Here we take medicines 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 past a crisis, the other only come here a long time, you just get in contact with the allergen to have another crisis.
What is the allergen that causes the 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 verify which components he is allergic and so know what the best treatment.
Winter brings with it the dreaded conjuntive: swollen eyelids, red eyes, with discharge and very uncomfortable. A link between respiratory disease and conjunctivitis, is that it can be rightly caused 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 a day;
- Let the well-ventilated area, preferably the windows open to let the sun in;
- Always pass a damp cloth on the furniture and the floor, if possible daily to avoid the accumulation of dust.
