What Are The Allergy Symptoms To Eucalyptus Pollen
Trees, grass, weeds: Pollen are fertilizing grains produced by plants for propagation. Some plants use the wind to help in pollination producing massive quantities of pollen that become airborne; these include trees, grasses, and weeds. If you are prone to allergies, these plants can cause symptoms during certain seasons. Plants that make pretty, fragrant flowers attract insects for propagation & don't cause allergies. ...Read more
Pollen is the equivalent of sperm for a plant. It is a genetically active product, seen on flowers usually, which the plants with the assistance of birds, bats and insects as well as the wind, uses to fertilize the egg of the plant to ensure a next generation. It also can be irritating, functioning as an allergen, leading to sneezing ...Read more
Lips get swollen itchy with little bumps all over lasting weeks every time I get pollen allergies. Is this s symptom of my pollen allergy?
Could it be real, that smoking makes me feel overcome pollen allergy symptoms for a while? It helps for a brief period.
Odd, but yes: Back in early medical history smoking (of specially compounded mixtures) was used as a treatment for asthma and nasal congestion. I don't know the mechamism, but it was successful for brief periods - enough to please patients. It's not good for the cells and tissue, but it can paradoxically reduce symptoms for awhile. Here's a bit of history: https://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pmc/articles/PMC2844275/ ...Read more
Can a high positive ANA cause allergies? I never had allergy symptoms and now I react to so many things (food, medication, contrast dye, pollen, dust)
Can allergies to molds pollens dust etc include symptoms of lightheaded, feeling a little spacey etc?
I get really bad itchy palate and ears during pollen season, can this become serious or is it a harmless allergy symptom? Any way to relieve it?
I experience nasal stuffiness during the day due to tree pollen allergies, but symptoms get worse at night (when pollen count is lower). Any ideas why?
During the day, you are more active. You are up, around, doing things. At night, especially when you are in bed, you are less active and lying supine (on your back). This decrease in activity and your position in bed may both contribute to worse congestion at night.
The other thing that I would consider is that your bed may be filled with allergens. Wash your bedclothes and see what happens. ...Read more
I have a very slight symptoms of allergy on pollen. Can I use q urol (witch contains bee pollen) and can this cure help me with ED caused by cpps?
Bees, pollen allergy: Most people with pollen allergy are allergic to wind-borne pollen such as grass, tree and weed pollen. Their seasonal allergy symptoms are not due to insect-borne flower pollen. This bee pollen does not help seasonal allergy sufferers but may have other health benefits. I would recommend seeing your urology md for ed and cpps as it is not related to allergies. ...Read more
Which children with pollen allergies and eczema should be checked for gluten allergy, if they don't have stomach symptoms and are growing normally?
There are three treatment options regarding allergies:
1. Avoidance - easier said than done but still possible for pollen allergies. Keep the windows closed during the pollen season. A hepa room air purifier is helpful but expensive.
2. Medicines. See my website for more detailed info: www. Kleinallergy. Com
3. Allergy injections - when the above methods fail or if meds cause side effects. ...Read more
Avoid and treat: Allergic rhinitis is most commonly due to sensitization to pollens (tree, grass or weeds), animal dander, or dust mite. Allergy shots are particularly helpful in many cases. Treatment for mild-moderate allergy still provides lasting relief (several routes exist for optimized combination therapy) and proper avoidance strategies (keep windows shut in season, wear mask outside, avoid other irritant ...Read more
Medication: Most people can obtain relief of their allergy symptoms with medications. The otc antihistamines, such as claritin, (loratadine) Allegra and zyrtec (all available generically) work for many patients. Prescription intranasal corticosteroids and antihistamines are a good option for more severe symptoms. When these do not work, allergen immunotherapy (allergy injections) should be considered. ...Read more
Antihistamine: Daily antihistamine can help, and they are over the counter. Nasal steroids, which are prescription can also help but they work best when taken consistently. You can do an antihistamine as needed, such as when pollen counts are high or when you first start to get symptoms. ...Read more
Seasonal symptoms?: Pollination from grasses, weeds, and trees are seasonal. Thus depending on what you are allergic to, your symptoms would appear during the time when that particular plant (plants) pollinate. Trees tend to bloom in the spring, grasses spring/summer, weeds late summer/fall. ...Read more
Depends on Severity:
The usual recommendation for patients with allergy to pollen is to dry some simple over the counter "anti-histamines."
there are several now on the market which used to require a prescription.
Allegra and zyrtec (cetirizine) are common anti-histamines. Read the label and consult your doctor.
Not sure what you mean by "lily." are you allergic to only the plant and/or the flowers? ...Read more
No: There certainly is a genetic component to allergic disease but not a specific pollen allergy gene that is passed on. A general rule of thunb is that is one parent is allergy there is a 25% chance that the kids will be allergic. If both parents are allergic the chance is 50%. What is passed on is the ability to be allergic. One may have asthma and the child is food allergic, for example. ...Read more
Proteins: Pollens contain proteins that trigger immune reactions in people with a genetic predisposition to develop allergies. ...Read more
Depends: Seasonal allergies occur at different times of the year as different pollens come out. In the spring it is tree and grass season. In the fall it is ragweed season. At least in the mid atlantic area. ...Read more
As early as needed: It is hard to diagnose pollen allergies in a baby, particularly one that is exposed to viruses in daycare and may do a lot of sneezing due to infections. Skin testing can be done at any age, but the immune system doesn't start making allergic antibodies until about six months of age. If there are allergic symptoms and positive skin tests before that, it is due to antibodies transferred from mom. ...Read more
Late reaction: Some people with allergies will have a delayed reaction a few hours after exposure, in addition to the immediate reaction. ...Read more
Treat: Individuals who develop allergies have a genetic tendency to develop new allergies. If you move, you would likely develop new allergies. New generation medications, appropriate avoidance of exposures, and immunotherapy (allergy shots) can be very effective in controlling allergies. ...Read more
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
