Symptoms of an allergy to odors
Allergy to odors has a number of symptoms - rashes on the skin, itching, nasal congestion, sometimes choking.
Allergies cause perfume aromas, flowering plants - rose, bird cherry, lilac, jasmine. Allergy to the smell of paint, varnish, freshly-mixed mortars is a common phenomenon. If you go out into the air, the symptoms stop worrying. Residents of large cities are most vulnerable. It is believed that the slagged air of megacities increases the possibility of damaging the bronchial mucosa.
Factors predisposing to allergy include: functional disorders of the nervous, endocrine system, brain injury, excessive negative response to the external environment (psychological factor). The growth of human society leads to the emergence of new allergens, so it is necessary to develop the body's resistance to aggressive environmental factors.
Allergy to harsh odors
Allergic to pungent smells. What is it really? There are people whose body reacts violently to a strong odor. There is lacrimation, discharge from the nose, respiration worsens.
Otolaryngologists say that such symptoms are inherent in vasomotor rhinitis, rather than allergic. Signs of nasal congestion, rhinorrhoea are provoked by saturated smells, rather than chemical compounds. Such a process takes place in the cholinergic part of the autonomic nervous system. Vasoconstrictor drops in this case are not recommended, as they can cause chronic nasal congestion. For relief of unpleasant symptoms it is better to use sprays - "atrovent", "kromogeksal", "kromoglin".
An allergy to pungent odors is more often a vasomotor rhinitis, which is treated by the course of intranasal blockades with the use of "dicinone" and through laser therapy. Applied hydrocortisone ointment during phonophoresis procedures.
Allergy to onion odor and fish allergy is related to individual intolerance of the product. It is very important to correctly identify the symptomatology and remember that if the product is intolerant, the immune system's mechanisms are not included and this is not an allergy.
Fish itself is an allergen, so it is not surprising that even its odor can provoke allergy symptoms. Fish odor can be dangerous for people with allergies to it.
