Although colds usually go away in seven days, little attention is paid to preventing the disease. Scientists around the world have begun to find a cure for the common cold, but no special attention has been paid to allergic colds. This article provides information on what a patient should do in a situation where no such drug has yet been discovered.
Allergies play an important role in the causes of colds, the exposure of which causes sneezing and not stopping sneezing. This type of cold occurs three to four times a year, which affects health. Prolonged colds can cause a runny nose. This disease is called allergic rhinitis. Prolonged colds can also cause headaches.
The pain is more or less the same as the effect on the sinuses. For several days a thick, light yellow odor begins to come out of the nostrils. It is called atropic rhinitis. The crust also freezes in the nose, which when removed also causes bleeding.
The difference between a common cold and an allergic cold – The common cold is caused by a viral infection, while the common cold is caused by an allergy.
The common cold is cured within a week, while allergic colds often seem to go away.
The common cold occurs once or twice a year. When allergic colds can last longer.
Body aches, fever and headache are common symptoms in common colds, while sneezing, runny nose and itchy nose are the main symptoms in allergic colds.
Symptoms of Allergic Colds: In this type of cold, the patient’s face appears irritated. This is because the infection causes redness in the eyes and bitterness in the mouth. Itching of the nostrils causes swelling, a runny nose. Mouth becomes dry, difficulty in breathing also, tingling due to secretion of histamine in the nose, sneezing due to histamine and runny nose.
A person affected by an allergic cold – from the age of 3 to 18 years is prone to allergic colds. In fact, people up to this age do not fully develop immunity. Children are 15 percent more likely to be infected than adults. Childhood allergies are more likely to occur, but immunity increases with age. This type of cold also causes suffocation in the sufferer.
Allergic colds from air and water: Allergic colds are more common in winter in northern India, as the humidity is very low during this season. Due to the dry air, the moisture in the mucous membrane of the nose is reduced, so that the mucus and small hairs of the nose cannot prevent allergies. Due to the high humidity in the rainy season in Mumbai, the tiny hairs of the nose are affected, so that the infection cannot be prevented. This winter transition is very rare in the summer season, but the danger is high due to the pollen of the flowers, which keep flying with the wind. If a person has a cold all year round, the person who comes in contact with it definitely has allergies.
Identification of cold-causing allergens: There are many tests performed by a physician to determine the cause of a cold, although a person can determine for himself or herself some of the reasons why he or she is suffering from a cold. For example, if a cat starts sneezing and has runny nose after being put in its lap, it is an allergic symptom. The person is allergic to pet hair. Cleaning a damp area can cause sneezing if the person is allergic to the fungus. However, allergies are often unrecognizable until a skin test is performed.
The main causes of allergies are: 1. Pollen – Pollen of flowers is flying in the air. This pollen causes allergies. This makes children playing in the garden more likely to get allergic colds.
2. Dust – Carpets and curtains, quilts are very dusty, so plastic curtains, vinyl flooring should be used. Plastic covers should be used on mattresses and pillows. Dust should be removed with a vacuum pump.
3. Fungus and Moisture – Moisture in the bathroom causes fungal spores to grow. Therefore, special care should be taken to maintain dryness to remove fungus and moisture.
4. Proper care of pets – Pets should not be allowed in the bedroom. Hands should be washed after touching the animal.
W. Abandonment of bad habits – Alcoholism means that the sensitivity of the person to alcohol and smoking increases. Alcohol spreads in the bloodstream causing excessive runny nose, watery eyes and even antihistamines.
6. Odorous substances – Some of the things that constantly give off odors, such as soap, perfume, phenyl, detox, etc. Exposure to these substances can also cause allergic reactions.
7. Foods – Some people should try not to consume these items if they feel restless after eating other items like milk, yoghurt, eggs, fish, lentils.
8. Insect bites – Avoid winged creatures, especially bees. When such a creature bites, it becomes red and swollen (gradually).
