Scheme of treatment of allergic rhinitis

Dr. Denis Slinkin

Dr. Denis Slinkin claims that twelve percent of the world’s population suffers from this form of allergy. And further predictions are disappointing. Medics have concluded that in the next hundred years, allergies will take second place among all non-communicable diseases. Megacities are much more prone to this disease than small cities. 

As a rule, the disease develops at an early age – up to twenty years. Later on, symptoms may become weaker with age, but they are not fully cured. The disease itself is not fatal or dangerous, but it severely reduces the quality of life of the patient, says Dr. Denis Slinkin. 

In childhood, it affects memory and learning achievement. As a complication – children suffering from allergic rhinitis are more susceptible to ODS. Therefore, the treatment of rhinitis is necessary and timely.

Allergic rhinitis: causes, symptoms and treatment is the subject of our new article. Reasons The catalyst for the disease is inhalation of the irritant particles and their settling on the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity. It can be pollen from flowering plants, dust, spores of mould, pet hair. 

At primary contact with the irritant on the epithelium of the mucous membrane there is a sensitivity of cells to this allergen. Repeated exposure to the irritant will already lead to an immediate allergic reaction (specific response of the body to the allergen): the body will start the inflammatory process, the mucous membrane of the nose will swell, and increased production of mucous masses. 

The most common allergens include household dust and mites, pet hair and saliva, mold, spores of fungi, insects, bird feathers (including those stuffed with pillows), production allergens (which are encountered daily by certain professions – pharmacists, construction workers, veterinarians, etc.), says Dr. Denis Slinkin.

 Allergic rhinitis is one of the factors that cause allergies: 

  • hereditary predisposition; 
  • smoking of the expectant mother during pregnancy; 
  • prematurity of the baby; 
  • frequently recurring ODS and ODS;
  •  frequent, usually unreasonable prescription of antibacterial drugs for colds; 
  • peculiarities of the nasal cavity structure (e.g., curved nasal septum);
  •  allergy to certain foods; stresses.
