Prevention is the Cure For Allergies

By S Brooks

A good number, almost over 50 million Americans suffer from allergies regularly and although there are medications, nasal sprays, and other things that one can do to relieve symptoms of an allergy attack, it is better to make some preventive measures which can cure allergies for good.

What Causes An Allergy Attack

An allergy attack happens as the body tries to ward off substances that the body considers as invaders. The most common causes of allergies are airborne allergens like pollen, dust mites, mold and mildew. Some come from the food we eat, such as allergies from nuts and berries. There are children who never outgrow their allergy to milk, yoghurt, eggs and other daily products. Then there are some who are allergic to almost anything that touches their skin like cloth fibers, animal dander, perfume or other factors such as sudden changes in the air temperature.

Prevention From Allergies

Here are some simple, practical solutions that you can do to clear your environment of allergens and prevent yourself or your family from getting allergies:

1. Keep your room temperature at 82F during the summer and lower than 35C during humid days. You can use a dehumidifier that will prevent the air from getting too humid, which makes it the perfect breeding ground for mold, dust mites and mildew.

2. Change your bed sheets, pillowcases and blankets regularly. Dust mites are tiny organisms that live inside mattresses and hide in bed linens. There can be millions of them in any home and the only way to get rid of them is by vacuuming your mattress and pillows or putting them in anti allergy encasements and pillow covers.

3. Dust can accumulate on your television, computer keyboard, study table, rugs, and table tops. You need to keep these surfaces clean to avoid allergies. When housecleaning, get your nose covered with a face mask, to prevent inhalation of dust.

4. If you know that you or your child has an allergic reaction to food, try to avoid exposure to the food allergen that can trigger these reactions. Keep your children away from the source in order to prevent an allergy reaction, that for most kids, can easily turn into an asthma attack. Inform your child's teachers about the allergy, to make sure that your child is not exposed to any allergens that can cause an attack.

5. You may consider moving to a place with a better climate, like Arizona, if you suffer from allergic reactions such as asthma or bronchitis. The air in Arizona, California and Texas are drier, which is not a good environment for most allergens such as pollen and dust mites.

Consider Immunotherapy

There are instances when prevention can no longer cure allergies. In these cases, doctors recommend that the patient undergo immunotheraphy or allergy shot treatments which are often suggested for those who suffer from airborne allergies. This is often recommended even for children who suffer from allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis and asthma. It changes the way a person's immune system react to certain allergens, which is a more permanent way to cure allergies.
