Learning about Spring Allergies through Infographics
Ah, yes. It is that wonderful time of year again. Break out the hankies and the neti pot. Start the eye drops and the nasal sprays and the allergy shots and the pills. AND people who suffer seasonal allergies can expect them to be even worse this year due to our mild winter weather which has given pollen, such as ragweed, a great start on the allergy season. Both of these infographics via allergybegone.com.
According to the Asthma and Allergey Foundation of American, allergies are the body’s over-reaction by the immune system to a foreign substance and is characterized by sneezing, scratchy throat, watery eyes, runny nose and coughing. More severe allergies can consist of skin rashes, hives, difficulty breathing, lowering of blood pressure and the most sever reaction: anaphylaxis.
The facts from AAFA are:
- There are no cures for allergies. Allergies can be managed with proper prevention and treatment.
- Allergies can be genetic.
- The number of Americans who suffer from allergies is on the rise.
Sounds like a little spring cleaning could be in order.
