01 The origin of World Allergy Day
On June 28, 2005, WAO and the National Allergy Agency jointly launched a global initiative against allergic diseases, marking July 8th of each year as the World Allergic Disease Day. It aims to prevent allergic reactions and allergic asthma by enhancing the awareness of allergies.
02 What is an allergic disease?
Allergic diseases, also known as allergic diseases, are caused by excessive sensitivity of the patient, producing a specific immunoglobulin E antibody (IgE) that is allergic to a particular allergen in the blood. This patient has a genetic predisposition. . IgE sensitivity can lead to several typical allergic diseases: asthma, rhinitis, allergic eczema, conjunctivitis, food allergies, drug allergies, and anaphylactic shock. The most common of these are allergic rhinitis and allergic asthma caused by sensitizing factors such as pollen, dust mites, fungi and pets.
03 What are the symptoms of allergies?
Allergic symptoms vary from person to person. A patient with the following symptoms means an allergic reaction. You can judge your current state and determine if you are allergic. If you have any of the following symptoms, you may want to consider an allergen test.
· Sneezing, runny nose
· Skin eczema, erythema, urticaria, wind rash, body itching
· Itchy eyes, ears, lips, and palate
· Pain in the nose, around the eyes, forehead

04 What should I pay attention to in prevention?
In addition to prevention in advance, away from allergens, try to avoid contact, pay attention to a few issues.
Medicine: Allergy medicine should be replaced
Many people take allergy medicines and they don't change them. Allergy medicines are better to eat. Long-term use of only one drug body is easy to tolerate, long-term anti-allergic effect is not good, and will lead to the accumulation of the same side effects. When taking the previous allergy medicine, the patient should be replaced under the guidance of a doctor.
Treatment: allergic rhinitis and asthma should be treated together
Allergic rhinitis and asthma like to get together, many people are not cured because of allergic rhinitis. Intranasal inflammatory secretions from patients with allergic rhinitis can flow into the pharynx or inhale the airway, which can easily cause asthma. On the other hand, many patients with rhinitis are forced to breathe because of nasal congestion, and allergens drive straight into the asthma.
Prevention: desensitization treatment first check allergens
For allergic diseases, allergic re-treatment can only control symptoms, but it can not prevent recurrence. To get rid of it, try desensitization. Clinical desensitization is most commonly used for respiratory diseases that are difficult to avoid exposure to allergens. Before desensitization treatment, first confirm whether the disease is an allergic disease. For example, rhinitis may be chronic or may be allergic. Therefore, the type of allergen must be confirmed before desensitization treatment.
05 Note: In summer, allergic dermatitis enters the high season
In summer, the climate is hot, the temperature rises, and bacteria, viruses, molds, etc. are spread a lot. In addition, the body's metabolism is fast, and the skin is easily affected by external unfavorable factors, which induces skin diseases, especially allergic dermatitis. Sunlight, insect bites, pollen, cosmetics, etc. may cause allergies.
Photosensitive allergic dermatitis appears to be in contact with photosensitizing substances or allergens. After exposure to ultraviolet light, erythema will appear within 12 hours. There may be swelling, and blisters may appear, accompanied by burning sensation and itching, but generally There will be no pain. Photosensitive allergic dermatitis mostly occurs in exposed parts such as the face, forearm, and back of the hand.
