Spring is about colors and nature renewal.

But seasonal allergy can spoil any sunny mood.

Today we will tell you about pollinosis, its development, treatment methods that can be used from the early childhood.
What is pollinosis?
Pollinosis or hey fever is an allergic disease, caused by trees pollen. This problem is seasonal as it is connected with trees and grass blossoming. Reaction on the allergen appears after its contact with skin and mucosa.
Why it happens?
Pollinosis is most common for people at the age of 20-30s, but it usually starts in childhood. 5,8% of children have some symptoms at the age of 2. Parents often mix allergy and ARI as they have much in common. That is why it is difficult to cure and in future it can develop in asthma.
Due to researches, pollen sensitivity is often inherited. Scientists know 136 genes responsible for allergic reactions development. But external factors are also important. They are:
-      Climate. Pollinosis is more often in dry climate.
-      Ecology. Urban residents suffer more
-      Home factors. Mould for example
Smoke, stress and bad eating habits can cause pollinosis even if you didn’t have it earlier.
It is important that the body is hostile not to pollen, but to its components: proteins and non-protein components. That’s why sometimes we have allergy not in season. For example, birch pollen has Bet v1, which can be also found in apples, carrots and peaches. So when eating these products you can have cross-allergy.
What are the symptoms?
Pollinosis can attack any part of respiratory system, usually several. The person has allergic rhinitis ( itching, sneezing, nasal discharge, stuffiness), conjunctivitis - lacrimation, redness of the eyes, photophobia; obstructive bronchitis - cough and dyspnoea during physical activity, temperature changes, weakness, sweating in the absence of fever;
pollen bronchial asthma - cough, wheezing;
skin reactions - urticaria, itching, oedema, rash.
4 steps to cure pollinosis:
