ALLERGIC RHINITIS

An individual can be allergic rhinitis to airborne particles (allergens), food, drugs, and chemicals that can cause symptoms such as redness and itching when in contact with the skin.

Allergic Rhinitis is an inflammation of the nasal mucosa characterized by successive sneezing, a runny nose, nasal congestion as a result of a series of immunological reactions due to exposure to allergen (most commonly pollen). It is more common in industrial countries and has a frequency of up to 30% in children and adults.

Asthma is a chronic airway disease with symptoms such as coughing, whistling breathing, shortness of breath, and frequent breathing.

The Treatment of Allergic Rhinitis

In the treatment of allergic rhinitis, the allergy test called PRICK that is carried out on the arm and examines the factors that cause allergies most frequently in the world, such as food, pollen, and dust, is very important. Prevention is the most important step in allergy treatment.

The prick test reveals the severity of the allergy, as well as names the factor that causes the allergy to begin with. This plays a very important role in the treatment of allergic rhinitis.

Vaccine Therapy and Immunotherapy

This procedure is based on the principle of desensitizing individuals who do not benefit from treatment and protection to allergens. There are hypoglossal forms and those used on the arms.

Skin Allergy

Patch tests are skin tests used in the diagnosis of eczema called allergic contact dermatitis (contact eczema). Allergic contact dermatitis is an allergic eczema that occurs within 48-96 hours of repeated contact with previously sensitized people.

Patch testing is a diagnostic approach applied to detect allergens that can cause this disorder.
