A great number of patients have allergic rhinitis and asthma. A proper and efficient rhinitis therapy can significantly diminish asthma risk.
The right diagnosis is set based on personal and family case history, clinical picture, laboratory analyses findings, elevated eosinophil count in the blood and pernasal swab culture, total IgE and specific IgE), Prick’s skin test and specific nasal provocation tests and paranasal sinuses X-ray if need be.
The therapy, first of all, implies the use of antihistamines, nasal corticosteroids, nasal decongestants and inhalation therapies. The specific immunotherapy (desensitisation) is achieved with small allergen doses sublingually and cutaneously by gradually increasing the allergen dose in specific intervals and gives best results.
With pollen allergy, the maximum concentration of the allergen is in the morning hours, so, you’d better avoid spending time outdoors, if possible. Moreover, the room you sleep in must 3 be closed at that time. When you come back home, make sure to change your clothes, shake them inside out, have a shower and wash your hair. With indoor allergens it is necessary to air, vacuum-clean and dust regularly.
