IF YOU HAVE OBSTACTION AND COLLECTION IN THE NOSE. . .
Foreign substances such as pollen, pet hair, dust, mold, smoke and perfume cause eye allergies. When these allergy-causing substances are encountered, the membrane above our eye flux releases a so-called “histamine” substance, which causes our eyes to become red, swollen and itchy. People with eye allergies often have an allergy in the nose, and accordingly sneezing, itching and congestion in the nose can be observed.
EYE ALLERGY INCREASES IN SPRING
The allergy season varies depending on where you live and what you are allergic to. Tree pollen usually causes symptoms in these months, as they are released in late winter and spring. Some different plant pollen is released in summer and autumn. For this reason, the allergy season usually starts in spring and extends until November.
IF YOU HAVE A POLY ALLERGY. . .
You should be careful not to go out in the spring / summer, especially in the morning and afternoon, when the pollen is abundant in the air. Wearing glasses or sunglasses does not cut your eye contact with the pollen, but reduces it slightly. Instead of opening windows in your home and car, you should use air conditioning. However, you should also make sure that you regularly clean the air conditioner units and change their filters frequently so that the allergens are not blown back in.
IF YOU HAVE A MOLD ALLERGY. . .
Try to keep the humidity between 30-50% in your home because the mold increases in a humid environment. Clean high humidity areas such as basement, bathroom and kitchen more frequently. If there is a lot of moisture, it is useful to use a dehumidifier.
IF YOU HAVE ALLERGY IN POWDER. . .
You should especially pay attention to your bedroom and try to keep dust mites away from your skin. To do this, change your bedding sets frequently and wash them at a temperature of at least 55 ° C. Make sure your pillows are antiallergic.
Wipe your room with damp mat or cloth, avoid cleaning with dry mop or broom. Because damp mat or cloth will trap allergens and provide more effective cleaning.
IF YOU HAVE ALLERGY IN DOMESTIC ANIMAL TYPE. . .
Do not feed pets in the home, especially in your bedroom. Do not prefer carpets in your decoration because carpets hold animal hair. Wash hands after contact with pets. Always wash your clothes along with pets before putting them on again. Above all, do not scratch your eyes. Because scratching the eyes causes mechanical damage to the surface of the eye, causing more histamine release and an increased allergy.
HOW TO TREAT?
In allergy treatment, artificial tears are used to wash the eye surface and remove the allergen from the eye. Antiallergic eye drops reduce histamine release and reduce allergic symptoms. Since the effect of these drops is not immediately evident, it is recommended to start using 2 weeks before your allergy begins. Cortisone drops can also be used to treat allergies. If, despite all these treatments, your allergy remains severe, immunotherapy, ie allergy needles, can be applied.
